Mexican featherweight Luis Alberto Lopez makes the journey across the Atlantic Ocean to take on Josh Warrington at Leeds' First Direct Arena live on DAZN  (excluding Australia and New Zealand).

For Warrington, this is a chance to gain momentum as he aims to secured a world title unification fight or to secure a high-profile fight in the United States next year.

For Lopez, it's a chance for him to spring a surprise as compatriot Mauricio Lara did previously.

This might not be Warrington's toughest challenge on paper but he must avoid an upset to make the most of his remaining years in the ring.

DAZN takes a look at the career of Lopez ahead of Saturday's fight below.
