Mauricio Lara and Leigh Wood to meet in world title rematch on May 27

1 min read

WBA world featherweight champion Mauricio Lara will defend his title against Leigh Wood on Saturday, May 27 at the AO Arena in Manchester.

The pair first met in Nottingham back in February in what was a brutal contest and saw Wood lose his title after his corner threw in the towel in round seven after being knocked down by the hard-hitting Mexican. 

Now Wood will be out for revenge as he looks to once again prove his critics wrong and become a two-time world champion.

Will Lara shock British boxing once more? Or will Wood reclaim his belt and finally take another step towards securing that much desired fight at the City Ground?
