How to watch Lara vs Wood 2: TV channel and live stream for boxing tonight
Wood lost his WBA featherweight title despite putting on an impressive display in the first fight in his hometown of Nottingham in February, boxing brilliantly before a vital lapse in concentration saw him floored by a monster left hook from ‘Bronco’ at the seventh round.
He had no qualms about getting an instant rematch and hopes to take advantage of a weight prank to reclaim the lost belt on Saturday.
The WBA gold is now vacant after Lara was stripped on the eve of the fight after tipping the scales almost four pounds over the featherweight limit of 126 pounds.
This was after the British Boxing Board of Control did not allow the Mexican to make a weight cut in recent days, having been unhappy with his high weight during a regulatory check earlier this week.
There had been doubts as to whether the fight would even go ahead, with Wood at championship weight but at a major size disadvantage against a huge puncher in Lara. However, plans are proceeding as expected as things stand.
