Mauricio Lara vs. Leigh Wood 2 is today (or tonight depending on where you are) live only on DAZN, promoted by Matchroom Boxing.
That’s right, the rematch is on! After delivering a mini-classic just 98 days ago, Mauricio ‘Bronco’ Lara, 25, (26-2-1), 19 KOs, fighting out of Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico, will be making his first title defense of his undisputed WBA title in a 12-round featherweight bout against Leigh ‘Leigh-thal’ Wood, 34, (26-3-0), 16 KOs, fighting out of Gedling, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom.
Lara became the WBA featherweight champion back on February 18, 2023, when he defeated world champion, Leigh Wood in their first altercation. He won his first world title that night, via technical knockout (TKO), after seven years boxing as a professional. Wood, with an eleven year professional boxing career, was left dejected, having lost his beloved WBA featherweight title, which was his first world title. He had won the championship in his bout against former champion, Can Xu back on July 31, 2021.
The pair are set to go at it again this weekend, running it back in their immediate rematch, which is almost certain to be full of fireworks again. Fans are yearning to see if Wood can settle the series or if Lara will prove his power to be too much for Wood all over again.
Two high-stakes matchups will be showcased on the undercard when super welterweights, Terri Harper vs. Ivana Habazin go to war to secure both the IBO Female World Championship, as well as the WBA Female World Championship. Prior to that, we get treated to a welterweight clash with Danny Ball going up against Jamie Robinson to secure the vacant BBBofC English Title.
