In San Antonio, Texas, last night, Mikey Garcia made history.

The 30-year-old became only the third fighter to win world titles at;

? Light-welterweight
? Lightweight
? Super-featherweight
and
? Featherweight

Joining an elite group that includes just Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez.

Garcia achieved the feat by beating the Russian fighter Sergy Lipinets for the IBF light-welterweight belt.

Lipinets who lost via a unanimous points verdict, was on the canvas for the first time in his career as Garcia made history.

Talking to the media afterwards, Garcia was ecstatic at achieving the feat, remarking to the media,

‘It’s a great feeling, it means a little chapter with my name.

‘Getting to be mentioned with the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez is a huge accomplishment and a huge honour for me.?


Garcia is now unbeaten in all of his thirty-eight fights.
