Luis Alberto Lopez claimed the biggest win of his career last weekend, beating Josh Warrington in his backyard and claiming the IBF featherweight world title.
Despite the win, Lopez remained angry at ‘Leeds Warriors’ for his ‘dirty’ antics during the battle.
The Mexicans won a tight contest by majority decision, won the first world title of his career. He was slashed by an early head bump, which threatened to end the match before it actually started. He has been in dialogue with the referee throughout about Warrington’s continued use of the head – something the current champion claims is no coincidence.
Warrington was involved in a number of early skirmishes, most notably in rematch with Mauricio Lara, As a result, the match was abandoned after only two innings.
In Warrington’s next bout, he regained the IBF world title from veteran Kiko Martinez. After the game, the Spaniard shared a photo showing his injury is the result of the same problem above.
Lopez said Izquierdazo that he would never give a ‘dirty boxer’ like Warrington a rematch.
“No, I never will. He is a very dirty warrior. He doesn’t deserve to be in professional boxing. With his fighting style, he can cause accidents to other boxers. He shouldn’t be allowed to box.”
While boxing legend, Carl Froch, claims that ‘no one will voluntarily defend Warrington’ due to his fighting style, things could be fine for the Leeds boxer.
After the failure, it seems his promoter Eddie Hearn’s plans have not changed much, it was recently stated that Warrington could still have a chance to win the Leigh Wood vs. Lara match. if that fight is done in early 2023.
