Showtime Preview: Lipinets-Clayton, Martinez-Morrero

By: Sean Crose Thirty one year old welterweight Sergey Lipinets will face thirty three year old Custio Clayton Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut. The scheduled 12 fight will be aired live on Showtime beginning at nine pm eastern time. Kudratillo Abdukakhorov was originally Lipinet's opponent, but had to step away due to matters concerning his visa. Boasting a record of 16-1, Lipinets has only lost to Mikey Garcia, which is certainly no shame. The widely unknown Clayton, on the other hand, is undefeated with a record of 18-0. This is clearly an opportunity for the Canadian fighter to leave his mark. The 15-0 Xavier Martinez will also appear on the card. The 22 year old super featherweight will engage in a scheduled 12 rounder with the 24-4 Claudio Morrero. With 11 knockouts to his name, the hard hitting Martinez will be looking to impress before showtime cameras. The 18-0 Malik Hawkins will be on the card, as well. The 24 year old junior welterweight will battle the 15-1, 28 year old Subriel Matias in a scheduled 12 round fight.

Floyd Mayweather: Gervonta Davis “Can Put You To Sleep With Either Hand.”

By: Sean Crose "All I have to do is stay focused," Gervonta Davis said during a media workout to promote his October 31st pay per battle with Leo Santa Cruz. "Stay humble," the 23 year old Baltimore native added, "and the rest is history." History of an unusual kind will be made Halloween night as Davis and Santa Cruz will battle for two belts in two separate divisions. Although such matches have occurred before, they're few and far between in the sport of boxing. Davis' WBA lightweight title will be at stake, as will Santa Cruz' WBA super featherweight title. The weight limit for each fighter for the match will be 130 pounds. “My training is going very well," said Davis. "I could make weight tonight if I wanted to. Overall, making the decision to bring my team and train in Vegas was the best for me. I think I’ll be training here for all my camps. I’m thinking about buying a property here so I can have a place to stay when I come here. I’m ready. My weight is on point and we’re just looking forward to October 31.” Davis claimed that being under the tutelage of promoter Floyd Mayweather has helped immensely. “Floyd," Davis said, "has just been telling me to stay focused. 'Be patient and be yourself.’ I just need to go out there and do what I do best, and that’s put on a great performance. I need to work hard so I can put on a great performance. This is a new task, fighting on pay-per-view against a tough opponent and for two belts. It’s very important that I go out there and put on the tremendous performance that I’m looking for." For his own part, Mayweather, who was at the Las Vegas workout, appeared quite pleased with his protege's progress. “I’m so happy with what Gervonta’s done in his career," the pound for pound great said. "He’s one of the biggest stars in the sport. I’ve laid down the blueprint and I’m going to keep helping him grow." Although not known as a power puncher during his own career, Mayweather made note of Davis' ability to turn off the lights on an opponent. “Gervonta is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport," he claimed. "He has the equalizer that can completely change a fight in one moment. He can put you to sleep with either hand.” The Davis-Santa Cruz matchup will be aired live on Showtime Pay Per View from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. It is being presented by Premiere Boxing Champions. The post Floyd Mayweather: Gervonta Davis “Can Put You To Sleep With Either Hand.” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
