Luis Alberto “El Venado” Lopez and Michael “Mick” Conlan are set to clash for Lopez's IBF featherweight world title this Saturday, May 27, at a sold-out SSE Arena in Conlan’s hometown of Belfast.
Lopez (27-2, 15 KOs) will make the first defense of his title after capturing the crown against Josh Warrington in enemy territory in Leeds, England. Conlan (18-1, 9 KOs) will make his second attempt at a world title following last March's valiant stand versus Leigh Wood.
Undercard fighters include undefeated featherweight Nick Ball (17-0, 10 KOs) defending his WBC Silver title in a 12-rounder against Ludumo Lamati (21-0-1, 11 KOs), and junior lightweight contender Anthony Cacace (20-1, 7 KOs), who will take on Polish standout Damian Wrzesinski (26-2-2, 7 KOs) in a 12-round clash.
Promoted by Top Rank and Conlan Boxing, in association with Queensberry Promotions, Lopez-Conlan and undercard bouts will stream live and exclusively on ESPN+ in the U.S. beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET/10:30 a.m. PT.
