Josh Warrington Form


Josh Warrington goes into this fight with a 31-1-1 record after returning to winning ways last time out.

The Leeds fighter established himself as one of the top featherweight fighters by winning the first 30 fights of his career.

He became a world champion for the first time in May 2018 when he registered a split decision win against Lee Selby to win the IBF title.

Warrington then successfully defended that belt three times, beating Carl Frampton and Kid Galahad by decision before stopping Sofiane Takoucht in the second round.

He gave up the belt after that victory against Takoucht and in his next fight he suffered his first career defeat.

The 32-year-old suffered a surprise ninth-round knockout loss to Mauricio Lara in London, and when the two men met again he failed to get his revenge.

The fight was halted in the second round and declared a technical draw after Lara sustained a cut during an accidental clash of heads.

Warrington was able to finally get back on track in May though, stopping Kiko Martinez in the seventh round to become a two-time IBF featherweight champion. 

Luis Alberto Lopez Form


Luis Alberto Lopez has won nine straight fights to improve his professional record to 26-2 and land this world title shot.

The 29-year-old Mexican suffered the second defeat of his career when he dropped a decision to Ruben Villa in May 2019.

He rebounded quickly though, recording back-to-back first-round stoppage wins against Israel Rojas and Marco Antonio Monteros.

‘El Venado’ then made it three-in-a-row by stopping Cristian Baez in the fifth round, before seeing his streak of stoppage wins end with a split decision success against Andy Vences.

Lopez needed only 58 seconds to knock out Mauro Loreto in his next outing though, and since then he has gone the distance just once.

He recorded a decision win against Gabriel Flores in September 2021, and has gone on to stop each of his last three opponents.

The Mexican finished Isaac Lowe in the seventh round in his UK debut, before finishing Raul Chirino in the fourth and Yeison Vargas in the second.
