Former light-welterweight champion (up to 63.5 kg), Russian Sergei Lipinets (16-1-1, 12 KO), who failed to outbox the Canadian prospect Castio Clayton (18-0-1, 12 KO) last weekend, said, ready for the decisive meeting.
“Whatever I say now, it will not change the decision of the judges. Yes, he did a great job, but I would not say that he often hit me.
Perhaps I could have picked up the pace early, but at the same time, I could not forget about its strength. If the “interim” IBF title is at stake again, then I am ready for revenge, “Lipinets said.
