Josh Warrington vs Luis Alberto Lopez: UK start time, how to watch, card

Josh Warrington and Luis Alberto Lopez are all weighed in ahead of their epic encounter on Saturday night, and we’ve got all the details, including the UK start time.

Following a crushing knockout defeat to Mauricio Lara, ‘The Leeds Warrior’ regained his IBF featherweight title with a destructive win over Kiko Martinez. And now he has to defend the belt against a determined Mexican with dynamite in his fists.

The 29-year-old has accumulated an impressive record of 26-2, featuring a victory over Tyson Fury’s long-term friend, Isaac Lowe. So it goes without saying that Warrington has a difficult task ahead of him. However, he’ll take confidence in the fact that his adoring Leeds fans will undoubtedly scream their hearts out to help him through any difficult moments.

But once he sets foot through the ropes, the supporters can’t fight for him. Therefore, the Brit will need to be at his ferocious best to get the job done. And to make sure you don’t miss a second of the action, we’ve compiled all the details you need below.
