Mauricio Lara will hope to once again beat Leigh Wood as the pair prepare for their second battle in the ring. Wood lost in his hometown of Nottingham back in February after Lara stopped the Briton in a controversial seventh-round finish.

Wood had been boxing triumphantly against the dangerous Lara in front of a raucous home crowd and was leading on all three judges scorecards before letting his focus slip up for a split-second and paying the full price with a vicious left hook to the chin.

However, just yesterday (Friday 26 May), the Mexican was stripped of his title after he failed to make the weight for the rematch. The gold is now once again vacant and furthermore, only Wood will be eligible to win the title on Saturday.

The British Boxing Board of Control prevented Lara from weighing in at less than 128.5lbs after a midweek check suggested he would not ‘safely’ make the 126lbs limit. Wood, 34, will now be giving up a size advantage over the 25-year-old Mexican which could see Lara become even more dangerous than he was in February.

What’s been said?

Speaking after his defeat in February, Wood quickly revealed his intentions of activating the rematch clause. He said: “It’s been hard, because it still hurts. I want an immediate rematch. I’ve told Eddie Hearn that’s what I want. I want the rematch as soon as possible.

“It’s easy to take a defeat if you’re not good enough. You tank it, but everything was going to plan and I made a little mistake. He didn’t find that shot. He didn’t wait until round seven for that shot. I gave him that shot. I know I can beat him, and I am going to beat him.

“Redemption, revenge, whatever you want to call it, I want my belt back. It was a special night. Everybody got behind me for the fight and the one coming up. In the first round, I appraised him and it didn’t feel heavy at all. What it was was fast and sharp.”
