Sergey Lipinets To Move Back Down To Junior Welterweight, Eyes January Ring Return

Sergey Lipinets is ready to give junior welterweight another try. The former titlist is preparing to drop back down in weight following a two-year foray in the welterweight division, with hopes of his return to the 140-pound division to come next January. Lipinets—who briefly held the IBF junior welterweight crown—never moved up to welterweight out of physical necessity more than means to remain active. With more opportunities now opening back up in his old division, it felt like time to return to his optimal weight.
