Mauricio Lara and Leigh Wood rana it back in a rematch to headline a Matchroom Boxing on Dazn card on May 27, 2023, from Manchester, UK.
The pair clashed 3 months back where Lara defeated Wood via knockout in round 7 after Wood dominated the bout on the judges’ cards. Lara took the WBA Featherweight title off Wood as a result. However, he lost that title before his first defense after BBBofC did not allow him to weigh less than 128.5 lbs since his check weight on Wednesday was much higher.
The title was still on the line for Wood in this bout though. Was he able to block a knockout this time around and lead on judges scorecard like the last time? Tune in below for all the results live from Mauricio Lara vs Leigh Wood boxing event.
