Rodolfo López (born September 18, 1983 in Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico) is a professional boxer. He competes in the featherweight (126 lb) division. He is the Former WBC world featherweight champion.

López recaptured the WBC featherweight title with a victory over Takashi Koshimoto[1] but lost the belt in his first defense to former champ In-Jin Chi. Scores were 117–111, 116–112 and 116–113. Chi subsequently vacated the title since, thereby enshrining Jorge Linares as the full and current WBC Featherweight Champion, after Linares had defeated Oscar Larios for the interim title.
