The ten-round bout will be part of a nationally televised
card that will be presented by Premier Boxing Champions on
FOX & FOX Deportes at 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. PT.
Bone (20-5, 8 KOs) of Ecuador has won four straight bouts,
which Bone and his team believe it should be six straight
wins, with disputed losses to former world champion Miguel
Vazquez and then undefeated Eddie Ramirez.
"I am motivated and ready to get back on the big stage,"
said Bone. "Lipinets is a strong fighter. He is good with
both hands, He is good all around."
"I know Lipinets is going to bring his best, and he will be
well prepared, but Erick Bone will be well prepared as well.
It is just a matter of who wants it more, and what will
happen in the ring."
Bone believes that he is catching Lipinets at the right
time, as the former champion is coming off his 1st loss.
"I saw a few things in the Mikey Garcia fight that I can
exploit, but I am not going on that fight alone. I won't do
exactly what Garcia did, but yes there are a few things that
I learned by watching that fight that will help me on
Bone is coming into the ring believing that he has fought
well enough to have won the previous six fights, so he feels
that his confidence level is at an all-time hight.
"I feel very confident. I have fought good opposition, and
no matter what the judges have said, I feel I haven't lost
any of my last six fights, and Saturday'win will be my
biggest. I am just ready for a great performance on
"Erick is very confident going into this fight, and we feel
we are catching Lipinets at the right time as he is coming
off his 1st loss to Mikey Garcia. I expect him to have a
great performance on Saturday night. He has won four
straight, but when you see the fights with Vazquez and
Ramirez, Erick won those bouts," said Bone's manager, Ely
McKay. "In fact the last fight we had in Vegas, a judge came
up to me and told me that the fight with Ramirez is one of
the fights the commission uses to school their judges. The
Vazquez fight was so bad that one of the judges gave Vazquez
9 of 10 rounds, when at worst it was a close fight."
