Just four years ago, Luis Alberto Lopez lost a unanimous decision to Ruben Villa for a minor featherweight strap, the second defeat of his career. Far from moping, el Venado (the Deer) redoubled his efforts and is now sitting pretty as the IBF world champion at the same weight.


The 29-year-old comprehensively beat Josh Warrington in the Leeds fighter's backyard last December, then defended his crown at the first attempt in Belfast against Northern Irishman Michael Conlon, stopping the bout in the fifth round. Now Lopez is bringing the belts to Texas in a sort of homecoming and is looking for a 12th straight win.


This will be Joet Gonzalez's third world title shot and the American acquitted himself well against elite fighters Shakur Stevenson and Emanuel Navarrete but losing unanimous decisions to both. The 30-year-old's only other defeat came against the excellent Isaac Dogboe, in July 2022, on a split decision but a confidence-boosting win against Enrique Vivas in April has set him up for another crack at gold.


Gonzalez throws his punches in bunches and loves to come forward. He also has a significant reach advantage over his Mexican opponent. Lopez, though, is canny will look to slip and slide, then pick off his bigger opponent as the favorite.

Lopez’s journey (with a record of 28-2, 16 KOs) to becoming a world champion hasn’t been a cakewalk. He faced defeats against Abraham Montoya and Ruben Villa early in his career. However, he found success against Andy Vences with a split decision in July 2020 and subsequently outclassed then-undefeated Gabriel Flores Jr. in September 2021. After three more victories under his belt, he got the opportunity to fight for the IBF title. In an upset, he took down Josh Warrington in Leeds, England. Continuing his streak, he ventured into hostile ground and achieved a fifth-round TKO victory over Michael Conlan in Belfast. 29-year-old Gonzalez (with a record of 26-3, 15 KOs) is entering this fight after securing a 10-round unanimous decision win against Jose Enrique Vivas this past April.


Showcasing Mexican pride on such a big stage? That’s pure fire. I’m all hyped for the fight. We’ve got our blueprint, and we’re set to make it a night to remember on September 15.


I’m thrilled to step into the ring on such a significant day for Mexico. Both Joet Gonzalez and I will be holding our nation’s pride high, guaranteeing an explosive battle.


While I acknowledge and admire Gonzalez’s impressive record, the ring changes everything. All courtesies are left at the ropes. I’m determined to claim that belt for my family and our country.


Anticipate nothing less than an all-out battle. With two passionate Mexicans toe-to-toe, we leave it all in the ring. I respect Gonzalez’s tenacity, but my sights are set on delivering a knockout.


I’m prepared, as always. I’m not just any fighter; I’m one who guarantees adrenaline-packed bouts. They recognize that when ‘El Venado’ steps in, it’s going to be an electrifying show.


Joet Gonzalez: “I’m facing my third world title shot and couldn’t be more appreciative. Every single bout sees me pouring every ounce of my spirit into it. I’m hungrier than ever for that win.”


I’ve never known any way but the hard way—no shortcuts, just pure dedication in the gym. Some nights might not have been mine in the past, but that doesn’t deter me. Each time, I step in with renewed vigor.


I foresee an unforgettable clash. This isn’t just any day—it’s Mexico’s pride on the line. My sole focus is to emerge as the new IBF world champion. Nothing else matters. I’m set on taking that belt back with me.


Luis Alberto Lopez puts his IBF featherweight title on the line against two-time title challenger Joet Gonzalez at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi.


Lopez (28-2, 16 KOs) is coming off a successful title defense when he stopped Michael Conlan in the fifth round of their May showdown. Lopez won the title when he pulled off an upset by scoring a majority decision victory over Josh Warrington in December.


The Mexican has been rolling as of late, winning 11 fights in a row and overcoming being an underdog in most of those. He’ll be a significant favorite to retain his title against Gonzalez.


After starting his career 23-0, Gonzalez (26-3, 15 KOs) has had an up-and-down go as a professional. He’s alternated wins and losses since dropping a unanimous decision loss to Shakur Stevenson for the then-vacant WBO featherweight title in 2019.


He also fell short in capturing a world title when he lost to Emanuel Navarrete for the WBO title in October 2021. Gonzalez lost a split decision to Isaac Dogboe last July but bounced back by beating Enrique Vivas in April to put himself back into title contention.


Luis Lopez is coming off a big fifth round knockout win over 2012 Olympian Michael Conlan last May in a one-sided fight. Before that, Lopez was fouled like mad in his twelve round majority decision over IBF 126-lb champion Josh Warrington in Leeds, England, last December.


Although the judges scored it a majority decision, it looked like should have been an 11-1 type of victory for Lopez, as he totally dominated Warrington, who got away with murder in terms of roughhouse tactics with head-butting, rabbit punching, shoving & hitting to the backside. It was a surprise that the referee didn’t disqualify Warrington because he looked like a glorified MMA fighter.


Luis Lopez will dominate Joet Gonzalez, beat him up, knock him down a few times, but win a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision. Gonzalez has a good enough chin to last for the full duration, but he won’t be competitive against Lopez because he lacks the talent.


The promotion of the Luis Lopez vs. Joet Gonzalez event hasn’t been what you’d like to see for this fight, but it might not have been worth the money spent to market it to the hilt like other fighters.


Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said that he wants to match Luis Lopez against WBO 126-lb champion Robeisy Ramirez in a unification soon. Arum didn’t say when he wants to make that fight, but one gets the sense that he will let it marinate more before he makes that fight. Putting that fight together now wouldn’t make sense because neither of them are household names in the U.S. with casual boxing fans.
