Written by Tré Berry III🖊️ | 04/10/2021

If there were any skepticism about the amount of coverage, and praise 🇺🇸Jaron “Boots” Ennis (27-0-0, 25KO👊) had coming into the fight, those doubts should quickly fade from thought. With a display of perfect punch placement, movement, timing, guile, and defense, Boots dissected former Titlist 🇰🇿🇷🇺Sergey “Samurai” Lipinets (16-2-1, 12KO👊) through 6 rounds to become the first man to stop Sergey in his boxing career, and doing so in a Continue reading “Boots Validates the Hype Further – Dominates, and Knocks Out Lipinets in 6th With Wipeout Performance”

A WELL ROUNDED, WELL FOUGHT WELTERWEIGHT MATCH ENDS WITH AN EXPLOSION

By Tre Berry

What we got Sunday night on FS1’s headliner was a very solid, cerebral old school bout fought between 2 skilled fighters who displayed their in-fighting capabilities in full.

Lamont ‘Havoc’ Peterson (35-5-1, 17KO) was in top form, pivoting, spinning, and finding opportunities to split the guard and land inside while Sergey ‘Samurai’ Lipinets (15-1-0, 11KO) was able to match the wit and combination punching of Peterson, showcasing some slick upper body movement, and mixing his shots up well to the head and body.

Early on Peterson appeared to slightly have the upper edge, but Sergey wouldn’t budge. There was a very strange sequence where the 5th round lasted only 2 1/2 minutes, so after the corners had their minute timeslot, they were made to fight off the extra 30 seconds to cap the round off before getting to the 6th round.

Peterson mid fight started to find home with the left hook to the body, which he was digging in with vigor, but to very little effect on the ironclad Kazakh blooded fighter. Lipinets started to shift momentum in the 8th round, and hurt Lamont badly at the back-end of the round with a perfectly placed right cross that caught him on the tip of the chin, securing the round.

While Sergey was gaining the upper hand, Peterson hung in there and continued to land what he could, but you could see some wear and tear with the power shots that Lipinets was beginning to land.

The 10th round was a close one for about 2:45, until Lipinets hurt Peterson real bad, and jumped on him, pummeling him, having Peterson bounce off the ropes and go down, seemingly not knowing where he was at the moment. Peterson’s esteemed trainer and father-figure Barry Hunter turned into full time father-figure in the moment, with intentions of protecting his fighter and threw the white towel in the ring as soon as Peterson hit the canvas with 1 second left to go in the round, culminating the biggest win of Sergey’s rising career.

That so far was Lipinets biggest signature moment, and an explosive one to boot. With him clearing this difficult challenge, and the way he put his man away, he put himself in a real quality position for the established elite welterweights to look to him as a highly respectable challenge to take on…..if they are willing to.

An announcement was made after the fight, with Barry Hunter thanking the D.C. fans for 25 years of support, telegraphing what was to come. Lamont told his fans that this will be the last time they see him in a boxing ring, confirming his retirement from the sport of boxing. Very much like his whole career, his performance, and modesty was highly respectable, and he did very well in his career when it came to upholding the integrity of the sport, giving as good as he could get, hats off to D.C.’s own on a very solid career.

TWO SKILLED BOXERS CLASH IN SEARCH OF SOMETHING MORE

By Tre Berry 

Two quiet, former world titlists look to propel themselves back to another big opportunity, and they both hop in the drivers seat of their cars in pursuit to take on the other.

Former Unified Junior-Welterweight World Champion & Welterweight titlist Lamont ‘Havoc’ Peterson (35-4-1, 17KO) finally returns to action on Sunday night after his lengthy hiatus where he pondered retirement after sustaining a sound beating against Errol Spence Jr. back in January of 2018. The 35 year old still believes he has enough juice left to propel himself back to one more title opportunity, but he has a tough fight in front of him.

Standing across from Peterson will be former IBF Junior-Welterweight world titlist Sergey Lipinets (14-1-0, 10KO), who picked up boxing a little late, and started his combat experience as a kickboxer, so fighting was in his blood from the outset. He came over to boxing and learned quickly on the job, becoming one of the better Junior-Welterweights in the world. Now he’s been trying his hand at Welterweight, and Lamont Peterson stands in the way of what he covets, which would be another world title shot.

This fight screams of a 50/50 type of match-up, and I suspect that we will see the best of each fighter come out in this contest. This fight and its fight card will be shown on FS1 Saturday night, and live fight coverage starts on Sunday at 8 P.M. EST.
