Leigh Wood emerged triumphant in the rematch against Maurico Lara, recovering the WBA featherweight title. Lara, who had actually currently lost the title due to weight concerns, coped 12 rounds and was not able to restore his previous status. Wood controlled the fight with his straight right and efficient jab to Lara’s body. Lara’s tries at landing counter shots were foiled by Wood’s clinching and smothering techniques, leading to an uneven choice in favor of Wood. Wood revealed his delight at winning the champion as soon as again, calling it a fairy tale ending to his profession.
