The IBF World Featherweight Title won on the line on May 27th with Luis Alberto Lopez travelling to Belfast. The Mexican successfully defending his world title for the first time by knocking out Michael Conlan in front of his beloved Belfast crowd.

Lopez came into this bout fresh off the back of a stunning victory the fight before against Josh Warrington in Leeds, becoming world champion in the process. Up to now in his professional career, ‘El Venado’ has barely put a foot wrong. In his 30 professional fights, the Mexican has had his hand raised all but twice.

Of those 28 victories, the Mexican has finished 16 of his opponents inside the scheduled distance. Since making his professional debut back in November 2015, the 29-year-old won his first four fights via points. Then, Lopez won four of his next five bouts via knockout. Since then, Lopez has added another 11 stoppages to his impressive resumé.

Some big names in boxing circles such as Michael, Conlan, Josh Warrington, Isaac Lowe, Gabriel Flores Jr, Andy Vences and Ray Ximenez are just some of the names ‘El Venado’ has beaten up to now in his professional boxing career.

Lopez has had a fantastic career so far. Almost punch perfect. He has gradually stepped up levels each and every time he has fought. The only defeats on his record came at the hands of Abraham Montoya and Ruben Villa. Both of these fights were extremely close, with Lopez unfortunate to lose both.

Since then, Lopez has bounced back with some almightily impressive wins. He fought Andy Vences in July 2020, winning a close split decision in a fight that he was the underdog in. This was the beginning of the resurgence of ‘El Venado’, who has looked fantastic since.

In a fight that looked incredibly tough on paper against Warrington, the Mexican put on the best performance of his career. Lopez silenced the hostile Leeds crowd by defeating their hero Josh Warrington via majority decision. It was a fight the ‘Leeds Warrior’ was expected to win, but Lopez had other ideas and well and truly upset the apple cart. Not only that, but he became world champion in the process.

Then, Lopez picked up his 28th win as a professional boxer, make a successful first defence of his world crown in the process. Lopez brutally stopped Michael Conlan in five rounds in Belfast on May 27th, defending his world title for the first time in the process.

Given the fact Lopez was victorious, expect unifications before the end of the year. Clashes with other champions such as Rey Vargas, Robeisy Ramirez or Leigh Wood could potentially be next for Lopez. An all-Mexican unification with Mauricio Lara is an absolute mega-fight!
