Mauricio Lara ruined Leigh Wood’s party in Nottingham with a stunning left hook in the seventh round after trailing on the scorecards.
The result gives the Mexican the WBA featherweight title but for long portions of the fight, it appeared that Wood was set to make a routine defence of his belt after enjoying a solid start to the fight.
Despite both men promising to go all out, the fight began quietly with both men deciding to take a look at each other.
Another Wood round. Lara is losing these rounds and he's going to have to take a chance soon. There's damage to the face of Wood and that could be costly later on but he'll be happy with how things have gone so far. 10-9 Wood
A cut to Wood suffered in the first round has made him force the fight. It's a big mistake though as Lara has matched him and finished the round stronger. Wood is hurt but he makes it to the final bell. 10-9 Lara
Dalton Smith started a huge favourite against Billy Allington but he had to go the full distance with the brave Londoner standing firm. Smith had his opponent hurt several times but Allington survived well and deserved to hear the final bell. Smith was a big winner on the scorecards.
Cheavon Clarke went past four rounds for the first time as a pro but he was still far too good for Israel Duffus. The 2020 Olympian went the ten round distance against the experienced Panama man but he was able to drop him on mutliple ocassions before sttling for a wide points verdict.
Diego Ruiz arrived in Nottingham with a decent reputation, but he leaves with that enhanced following a brilliant win over Gamal Yafai. The Argentinian dropped Yafai twiceand was in control for large portions. The final scorecards all favoured Ruiz heavily and it leaves a series of questions regarding what Yafai does next. Have we seen the last of the Birmingham man?
