Josh Warrington will attempt to retain his IBF world featherweight belt on Saturday night when he comes up against Luis Alberto Lopez.

However, Saturday's event on DAZN had been scheduled to run at the same time as Engand vs. France in the Qatar World Cup.

Boxing in the arena will run from 1pm to 7pm GMT as had been planned, but the action will then pause as the quarter-final is shown to spectators in attendance.

Fighting will then restart when the match is concluded.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Warrington vs. Lopez.

Warrington vs. Lopez fight date, start time

  • Date: Saturday, December 10 
  • DAZN card: 9 p.m. GMT / 4 p.m. ET  
  • Main event ringwalks (approx): 10:35 p.m. GMT / 5:35 p.m. ET

DAZN's broadcast of the card is expected to begin at 9 p.m. GMT / 4 p.m. ET due to England's clash with France in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup. The main event ringwalks are scheduled for 10:35 p.m. GMT / 5:35 p.m. ET, but these could change due to the length of earlier fights and the running time of the England vs. France.



What if England vs, France goes to extra time?

DAZN have confirmed that their broadcast, featuring the top three fights of the card, will begin when the football ends. So, while that is likely to be from 9 p.m. GMT, a draw after 90 minutes would change that.

Extra time and perhaps also penalties would likely take the football to 9:30 or 9:45 in the evening UK time, and the boxing would follow that.
