LEIGH WOOD defends his WBA featherweight world title TONIGHT in a epic clash with Josh Warrington.

Wood is coming off a win over Mauricio Lara back in May, which occurred just 3 months after being knocked out by the Mexican in their first fight.

Warrington also had two fights with Lara, losing one by KO while the other was stopped due to a cut sustained by his opponent in the second round.

The Leeds fighter hasn't been in the ring since losing his world title to Luis Alberto Lopez on points last year.

And now he's looking to become a three-time world titleholder as he faces Wood in a titanic Sheffield clash.

  • Wood's clash with Warrington takes place this weekend on Saturday, October 7.
  • The fight will take place at the Utilita Arena in Sheffield.
  • The ring-walks for the main event will get going from 10.30pm BST, with the main card to start at 7pm.
