Lipinets vs Garcia and Barthelemy vs Relikh predictions
Sergey Lipinets is currently unbeaten with his 13-0 record with 10 KOs. He’s got the IBF Light Welterweight title in his sights and Mikey Garcia will be aiming to take that away from him.
Like any boxing fight it can go either way but Garcia is already planning for the future so it’s clear he sees himself passing Lipinets on his road to glory elsewhere.
Garcia is certainly favourite to win this fight and on paper, he’s the likely champ. Too much confidence could see him slip up though and as Lipinets is unbeaten it’s not a record he’ll want to be handing over too soon.
Rances Barthelemy vs Kiryl Relikh is a rematch after Barthelemy took the first fight. However, after controversial scoring, the bout was ordered to take place again.
If you’re putting money on it then Barthelemy is likely to take the win again, after all, most rematches end with the original winner retaining the win. However, if Relikh puts on a good show again and with a bit more of a convincing fight he could throw an upset for Barthelemy.
