Warrington last fought on 26th March 2022 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds. He faced and subsequently beat Kiko Martinez to regain the IBF Featherweight title that he had previously vacated.

Salvador “Chava” Rodriguez of ESPN Deportes first reported through a tweet that a deal was reached with Mexican Luis Alberto Lopez, to which talkSPORT’s Michael Benson has backed up.

Lopez is the mandatory challenger for Warrington’s IBF title, who has been the mandatory challenger since beating Isaac Lowe in December 2021 but has had to bide his time with two more victories until his world title opportunity.

This will be a big fight in the Featherweight division, as it will see the current champion taking on the number one contender, and both fighters are similar in career records.

31-year-old Josh Warrington's record from his 33 fights is 31-1-1 with eight wins by KO. Comparatively, 29-year-old Luis Lopez’s record from 28 fights is 26-2-0 with 15 wins by KO.
