Possible undercard for Wilder Vs Fury 2: Kudratillo Abdukakhorov vs Sergey Lipinets

 

Abdukakhorov vs. Lipinets would be a superb fight for the Wilder vs Fury 2 undercard, being shown on ESPN as well as Fox Sports Pay Television. The Russian Lipinets, 30, has actually won his last 3 fights after losing his IBF welterweight title to Mikey Garcia by a 12 rounded unanimous decision in March 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.

 

Abdukakhorov, 26, is rated number 1 with the International Boxing Federation at 147. With IBF welterweight champ Errol Spence Jr. inactive as a result of his auto accident, Abdukakhorov and also previous IBF 140-lb champ Lipinets will certainly combat for the acting IBF 147lb title.

 

Unconquered Kudratillo Abdukakhorov (17-0, 9 KOs) and also Sergey Lipinets (16-1, 12 KOs) will apparently be defending the acting IBF welterweight title on the undercard of Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury 2 rematch on February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

 

Since Lipinets’ loss to Mikey, he’s managed to find wins fighting the below boxers:

Jayar Inson

Lamont Peterson– TKO 10

Erick Bone

 

Lipinets will certainly require to be a whole lot much more energetic versus Abdukakhorov than he remained in his loss to Mikey if he wishes to win the fight, not just throwing one punch at a time.

 

Abdukakhorov’s finest victories to date have come versus the below boxers:

Luis Collazo

Dmitry Mikhaylenko

Charles Manyuchi

Josh Taylor

Keita Obara

 

Abdukakhorov, born in Uzbekistan and currently resides in Malaysia, has beat previous WBA welterweight champ Luis Collazo last October in Philly. The 38-year-old Collazo experienced a cut over his eyelid, stopping the fight in the 10th round.
