Some big moves were made at featherweight this past Saturday night.
In Manchester, Leigh Wood regained the WBA world title with a dominant twelve round unanimous decision over in his rematch with Mauricio Lara.
Over in Belfast, Luis Alberto Lopez retained the IBF world title when he knocked out Irish Olympian Michael Conlan in the fifth round.
Last year, Lopez traveled to Leeds to capture the IBF strap with decision over hometown hero Josh Warrington. He also came to London in 2021 and knocked out Isaac Lowe in seven rounds.
According to Lopez's manager, Kiki Magana, his fighter is ready and willing to return to hostile territory to face Wood in a unification.
"Please go and tell [Wood] that he is next," Magana told Mirror Fighting. "Of course, let's make it happen - I'm planning to buy a house in the UK. We're about to call Eddie Hearn and tell him 'if the money's right we'll come to London and we'll fight Leigh Wood'. It will be a full house!
"We would like to thank Belfast, the city had been really good to us since the start of fight week when we arrived to the hotel. Jamie Conlan, Michael Conlan, their whole team they were really, really nice to us and we were really excited, we love coming to the UK, we feel at home.
"When we started working up we knew that we wanted to do at least one really big fight here. Luis wanted to make a statement, he wanted to prove that he is a true champion, a true warrior and I think he did it. He was very motivated because in 2019 he became international champion and in his first defense he lost.
"He told me 'this is not happening again,' and became very motivated, put together a good training camp and right now he's working out and enjoying himself."
