Omar Figueroa Jr. vs. Sergey Lipinets Odds: Lipinets Given 74% Chance to Defeat Figueroa

Citing mental health reasons, just days ago, Adrien Broner bowed out of his main event fight this Saturday on Showtime at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, leaving Omar Figueroa Jr. with no opponent and his chances of fighting very much in jeopardy. Luckily for all involved, Russia’s Sergey Lipinets answered the call, and will now step on short notice to fill in for Broner.

When: August 20, 2022, 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT

Where: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Hollywood, FL

With Figueroa’s game plan now in the toilet, and a fighter in Lipinets who has had little to no training camp, what should we expect? Let’s take a closer look at both fighters and how the odds have responded ahead of this welterweight clash. 

Omar Figueroa Jr. (28-2-1, 19 KOs)

Turning pro all the way back in 2008, 32-year-old Figueroa Jr. has had an extensive welterweight career which includes being the former WBC, WBC FECARBOX, WBC Silver, WBA-NABA lightweight champions. Undefeated all the way through 29 fights into 2019, Figueroa Jr. finally met his match in July of 2019, losing to Yordenis Ugas via unanimous decision for his first loss.

Since then, Figueroa Jr. has suffered a second loss, this time an RTD to Abel Romas in May of 2021. Now after nearly 18 months outside of the ring, he’ll look to get back on track with a newly scheduled opponent, as he searches for his first win since February of 2019.

Sergey Lipinets (16-2-1, 12 KOs)

Speaking of that new opponent, Lipinets will step into the ring also off an extended layoff, having last fought in April 2021, a KO loss to Jaron Ennis. Prior to that, we last saw Lipinets in October 2020, a draw vs. Custico Clayton for the IBF interim welterweight title. 

Coincidentally, Lipinets last win also came in July 2019, a second-round TKO win over Jayar Inson. Despite the long layoff, one thing that likely hasn’t waned is Lipinets power. Of his 16 professional wins, 12 have ended via KO/TKO, something Figueroa Jr. will certainly be aware of come Saturday evening in Florida. 

Omar Figueroa Jr. vs Sergey Lipinets Odds

When these odds opened up as the world found out about the new matchup earlier this week, Lipinets immediately opened as a -164 favorite, as Figueroa Jr. settled in around +120 across the board. As was my hunch given Figueroa’s training for a completely different style of fighter, the money has poured in on Lipinets who currently sits at -280.

For those looking to hold steady and back Figueroa Jr, the best number currently available is +210 at DraftKings. The total for this fight is currently set at 8.5 rounds, with the under shaded to -139 and the over at +100.
