IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington will expect to end 2022 with a decided success on Saturday night when he invites Mexico’s Luis Alberto Lopez to the Main Direct Field in Leeds.
Lopez, who is an obscure ability to many fans, will be hoping to duplicate how his kinsman, Mauricio Lara, treated Warrington last year, momentarily de-railing ‘The Leeds Fighter’s arrangements to tie down a major outing to the US.
Lara figured out how to stop Warrington in February 2021 preceding the pair’s rematch seven months after the fact was halted in the second round because of a cut over the Mexican’s passed on eye which constrained the ringside specialist to call an end.
Pondering the misfortune to Lara, Warrington concedes that he was careless going into the challenge, yet he didn’t allow the misfortune to influence his certainty.
“It was somewhat of a reminder was Mauricio Lara – the first. I let my watchman down. I had the Lara rout and afterward out of nowhere it was, ‘He’s done, he’s had his time in the sun’,” Warrington said.
“That is not the situation. It was just a brief time frame in the sun and I feel like I was simply getting rolling.”
In Lara’s eyes, there is as yet incomplete business among him and the 32-year-old. After his third round stoppage prevail upon Jose Sanmartin in October, Lara called out Warrington in his post-battle interview and communicated his craving to resign the ongoing IBF featherweight champion.
Warrington anyway isn’t upset by Lara’s new remarks and accepts he has every one of the instruments to beat him on the off chance that the two were to meet for a third time frame.
“Individuals say he’s risky and he’s my boogeyman – f — k that, I know that with my head on it I can beat him simple. W — ker isn’t he, f — ing w — ker. I went from number one on the planet with Ring Magazine, BoxRec and all of this. I lost to him and afterward I was down in eighth and ninth.
“They were saying I was finished. Folks who a couple of years prior when I came out on top for the big showdown were no place to be seen. Presently out of nowhere, they were above me. How does that turn out?
“Keep on f — ing questioning me. I shouldn’t have come out on top for the English championship however this moment I’m a two-opportunity best on the planet.”Note: This Site may earn an affiliate commission if you sign up via a link on this page
