As the 2023 world boxing season evolves, the upcoming bout between Luis Alberto Lopez and Joet Gonzalez promises to be an electrifying event. In addition, both boxers will be playing for the International Boxing Federation (IBF) featherweight world title.
Both “El Venado” Lopez and Gonzalez have displayed exceptional skill and determination in their previous bouts, setting the stage for an unforgettable showdown.
The 29-year-old Mexican, Lopez, is currently the featherweight champion after an excellent unanimous victory over Josh Warrington in December 2022. The Mexican fighter retained the belt with a brutal technical KO over Michael Conlan in May. However, both fights took place in England, so this will be the first time Lopez can defend his belt in front of his home crowd.
