Lamont Peterson vs Sergey Lipinets 2019 Fight Live
March 24, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. ET Live on
showdown on PBC on FS1.
These two former world champions will be battling for relevancy tonight. Peterson is the older guy, and has more to lose obviously if he gets beaten, but Lipinets’ career will implode for all intents and purposes if he’s seen getting beaten by a a guy Peterson’s age. If Lipinets can’t hang with a fighter pushing 40 like Peterson, then he’s going to have to make a hard decision what he wants out of his career. Lipinets had a small taste of what it’s like being a world champion when he briefly held the International Boxing Federation light welterweight title from November 2017 to March 2018, but he’s his 15 minutes of fame is now over, and he’s going to have to figure out how he can capture that glory. Fighting at welterweight seems like a bad idea for the 5’7″ Lipinets, who doesn’t hit as hard as the elite level 147 pounders like Errol Spence Jr., Keith Thurman, Terence Crawford, Danny Garcia or Shawn Porter. Like the light hitting Peterson, Lipinets would be better off moving back down to 140, and looking to grab a title in that division. Unfortunately for Lipinets and Peterson, there are no money fights in that division. The champions that are currently holding belts at light welterweight, Jose Ramirez, Ivan Baranchyk, Kiryl Relikh and Maurice Hooker, aren’t big names, and there’s not a lot of money to make fighting them. Besides that, those are bad match-ups for Lipinets, and the aging Peterson. So now the two former 140 lb champions find themselves at welterweight with the likely goal of just getting a title shot, and a nice payday, but not having much of a chance of beating any of the champions..Subscribe Now
