Welterweight Sergei Lipinets and Castio Clayton commented on their fight, in which they failed to determine the interim IBF world welterweight champion, ending in a draw.

Sergey Lipinets: “I thought I won this fight, but Clayton is a good fighter. He turned out to be stronger than I expected. I haven’t fought for a whole year, and it was noticeable. I need to get back to my rhythm, having a couple of fights, and only then meet with top fighters. “

Castio Clayton: “You can’t overturn the referee decision, but I thought I was more accurate and won. He was actively moving forward, but did not get a lot of punches. Perhaps I should have pressed a little more actively at the beginning, but I felt that he was strong. that it is necessary to remain patient and restrained. ”I could have thrown combos faster, but overall I think I had a smart fight and dragged him.

I showed the world that I am not just a guy from Canada. I have proven that I am a good fighter. People will respect me a little more. If Lipinets wants to have a rematch for the interim title, we can do it. “
