Josh Warrington makes his first defense of his IBF Featherweight title as he takes on Luis Alberto Lopez to headline a Matchroom Boxing and Dazn Boxing event on December 10, 2022.
Josh Warrington won the featherweight title for the second time by defeating Kiko Martinez in March this year via TKO in seventh round. That win also ended Warrington’s poor run of a defeat and a draw after his return in 2021.
Luis Alberto Lopez already has two wins this year and is currently on 9 fights winning run, with last 3 wins coming via knockout. Lopez gave Issac Lowe his first professional loss last year before beating Raul Chirino and Yeison Vargas this year. Will he continue his winning run?
In the co-main event, Ebanie Bridges makes her first defense of IBF Women’s Bantamweight title against Shannon O’Connell. Bridges won the title from Maria Cecilia Roman on the same night when Warrington defeated Martinez.
The main card will start at 4 PM ET on Dazn and will also feature Felix Cash vs Celse Neves Super Middleweight bout.
The prelims card is slated to start at 9:15 AM ET on Dazn and Matchroom Boxing’s Youtube Channel and will feature 7 matches.
