Garcia vs. Lipinets: Fight date, start time, card, channel

Can Mikey Garcia capture a fourth world title in four weight classes, as he challenges Sergey Lipinets for the IBF junior welterweight title?

Mikey Garcia and Sergey Lipinets throw down tonight. Sporting News is providing live coverage and round-by-round scoring here.

Mikey Garcia looks to make history on Saturday, March 10 when he looks to win a fourth world title in a fourth different weight class, as he challenges Sergey Lipinets for the IBF junior welterweight championship from the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Tex.

The fight was originally slated to occur in February but Lipinets suffered a hand injury in training.

Current WBC lightweight champ Garcia (37-0, 30 KOs) is No. 8 in Sporting News' boxing pound-for-pound rankings, and the 30-year-old comes off the biggest win of his career, dominating Adrien Broner in July 2017 in his 140-pound debut.

Lipinets (13-0 10 KOs) was the mandatory title defense for then-undisputed champion Terence Crawford, but Crawford vacated his belts and moved up to welterweight. The IBF went on to make a bout featuring Lipinets and Akihiro Kondo to determine a new titleholder. Lipinets ended up winning by unanimous decision in November.

A lot is on the line for Garcia: should he win, he holds a lot of cards by holding two world titles. There's been the rumored bout against SN's No. 3 ranked Vasyl Lomachenko, or he could attempt to become the undisputed 140-pound champion.

Whatever the case may be, someone's undefeated streak will come to an end come Saturday night.
