Mikey Garcia has written his name in the history books, after winning his fourth world title by beating Sergey Lipinets on points.

The unbeaten American boxer has now won four world titles in four different weight class, joining Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez as the only fighters to have won titles at featherweight, super-featherweight, lightweight and super-lightweight.

Mikey Garcia had the IBF champion down in the seventh round, dominating majority of the proceedings to win 116-111, 117-110 and 117-110 at San Antonio, Texas.

“It’s a great feeling. Winning this fourth title in a fourth division is an honour,” he said.

 

“To get to be mentioned with Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez is a huge honour for me. It just leaves a little chapter in boxing with my name, my brother, my dad.

 

“I think people will remember the Garcia family for ages to come.”
