Lopez found out the name of the next opponent, Davis will compete in the eliminator


The newly-minted IBF featherweight champion (up to 57.2 kg) Mexican Luis Alberto Lopez (27-2, 15 KOs), who took the title from local favorite Josh Warrington (31-2-1, 8 KOs) over the weekend in Leeds (England) ), it looks like he will again hold his opening defense in Britain.

We are talking about a duel with the popular Irish ex-challenger Michael Conlan (18-1, 9 KOs) – both on a contract with Bob Arum (Top Rank).

British super lightweights (up to 63.5 kg) Ohara Davis (24-2, 17 KOs) and Lewis Ritson (23-2, 13 KOs) will meet in the WBA eliminator. The date and venue of the fight is still unknown.

Earlier, the Spaniard Sandor Martin, who lost in the WBC eliminator to the American Teofimo Lopez, refused the qualifying match with Davis.

Lopez-Martin: Angels and Demons – our report on this event

The winner of the 2020 Olympics, the British heavyweight prospect (over 90.7 kg) Fraser Clark (4-0, 3 KOs), will play the next fight against 43-year-old traveler from the USA Kevin Johnson (35-21-2, 19 KOs). The fight will take place on January 21 in Manchester (England) as an opening act for local middleweights Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Smith.

Another Olympic 2020 medalist, British welterweight prospect (up to 66.7 kg) Pat McCormack (3-0, 2 KOs) will enter the title fight on February 18 in Newcastle (England) in the main event of the evening from the series Next Gen (in which top prospects are run in) will fight for the regional belt. The name of the opponent has not yet been announced.

Boxing YouTuber Jake Paul, who is also a promoter (MVP Promotions), claims that his superstar-record holder – the conqueror of seven weight divisions, Puerto Rican Amanda Serrano (43-2-1, 30 KOs) – will rematch with the absolute champion in lightweight (up to 61.2 kg) Katie Taylor (22-0, 6 KOs) from Ireland.

The first match between the leaders of women’s boxing took place in April in New York (USA) – the Irishwoman pulled out a victory, having been on the verge of an early defeat.

According to Paul, negotiations with Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Boxing) are in full swing. Serrano is expected to take on Taylor “in Ireland in a stadium of 80,000”.

The Puerto Rican confirmed her consent, but recalls that she first wants to become an absolute in the featherweight division – she will fight with the owner of the WBA belt missing from the complete collection of the Mexican Erica Cruz.

It is interesting that earlier the YouTuber and Hearn had a slight quarrel: Jake Paul is fighting corruption using Usyk as an example – Joshua’s promoter got it. In response, he decided to sue Jake Paul for libel – threatening a 100 million lawsuit. And here is the YouTuber’s reaction to this case.
