Right Here is what Lipinets needed to claim from training school in Los Angeles with Goossen:
On his present training school:
Sergey Lipinets: “Training is going truly well. This is most likely my hardest training school ever before. We’re educating for Ennis’ physical capacities since we understand he’s the complete bundle as a boxer. He’s a rising star with a great deal on the line versus me. So I’m truly pressing myself. I have actually needed to compete some truly varied competitors since Ennis does a great deal of various points in the ring and also he can change up positions and also designs. We have actually had some strenuous competing sessions.
“Working with Coach Goossen is a great fit for me. He’s making it so that the things we’re working on are like second nature to me. It’s lots of work on combinations and throwing punches from different angles. Personality-wise we’re on the same page too, so we get along great, but he still pushes me.”
On Ennis being an “avoided” competitor:
SL: “I’m not sure why people say Ennis is avoided. On this level, nobody is afraid of anybody. I took this fight because I recognize that he’s one of the best welterweights out there, and I believe that when I beat him, it’ll put me in the mix for another championship fight. After this fight, the champions in this division are going to have to face me.”

SL: “We really did not have the correct quantity of time to plan for Clayton, and also he’s not a simple individual to combat. He has a wonderful amateur pedigree, and also he’s sports and also boxes well. In addition to all that, I drew my left hamstring in the 3rd round and also it became worse and also even worse throughout the fight. I do not wish to make reasons, however that had not been the most effective defend me.
“What I learned from that fight and every other fight is that I have to fight from the first bell to the last bell. I’m prepared to go the full 12 rounds and give it my all, like always.”
On exactly how his experience versus leading competitors and also battling throughout the pandemic aids him April 10:
SL: “Mikey Garcia has a various physicality and also power, so having actually gone 12 rounds with him could aid me. I took some significant strikes from him, and also I did some damages to him also. Yet Jaron was birthed with a mouth piece in, not a pacifier. I understand he’s a boxer and also he’ll prepare. This fight will boil down to sheer will. We’ll see on April 10 whether he awaits me, however I do not assume I have all that far more experience than him since I understand he’s been around boxing his entire life.
“It’s good to have experience fighting during these times, but that won’t make much difference. No matter what, when the bright lights come on and the bell rings, I’m ready to go. I love to fight. That’s what I do, regardless of the bubble or wherever I am.”
On what followers can anticipate to see on April 10:
SL: “I just want the sparks to fly. I believe that Jaron will bring out the best in me. I know that he’s a typical Philadelphia fighter who has a lot of pride, and I expect us to have an old school melee on April 10.”
