Luis Alberto Lopez puts his IBF featherweight title on the line against two-time title challenger Joet Gonzalez at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi.
Lopez (28-2, 16 KOs) is coming off a successful title defense when he stopped Michael Conlan in the fifth round of their May showdown. Lopez won the title when he pulled off an upset by scoring a majority decision victory over Josh Warrington in December.
The Mexican has been rolling as of late, winning 11 fights in a row and overcoming being an underdog in most of those. He’ll be a significant favorite to retain his title against Gonzalez.
After starting his career 23-0, Gonzalez (26-3, 15 KOs) has had an up-and-down go as a professional. He’s alternated wins and losses since dropping a unanimous decision loss to Shakur Stevenson for the then-vacant WBO featherweight title in 2019.
He also fell short in capturing a world title when he lost to Emanuel Navarrete for the WBO title in October 2021. Gonzalez lost a split decision to Isaac Dogboe last July but bounced back by beating Enrique Vivas in April to put himself back into title contention.
Will the third time be the charm for Gonzalez, or will Lopez continue his run as the best featherweight in the world?
