Luis Alberto Lopez will defend his IBF featherweight title vs. Joet Gonzalez on Sept. 15 in Corpus Christi, Texas. Lopez, ESPN's top boxer at 126 pounds, will headline a "Top Rank on ESPN" show for the first time in the U.S. The 29-year-old from Mexico won the title with a majority-decision victory over Josh Warrington in December. And then he retained the belt with a brutal fifth-round TKO of Michael Conlan in May. Both bouts took place in the U.K.
Lopez (28-2, 16 KOs) has won 11 fights since a 2019 decision defeat to Ruben Villa. Lopez will meet a fellow action fighter Gonzalez, 29, who fights out of Los Angeles. Two of Gonzalez's three defeats came via decision in title challenges (against Emanuel Navarrete and Shakur Stevenson). Gonzalez (26-3, 15 KOs) also dropped a decision to Isaac Dogboe last year.
