    i don’t think either fighter is particularly that good, but them together probably makes for a good fight.

    It would depend on how the fighters approach it. If Wood getting the stoppage last night makes him think he can just look for a big shot, he would probably get outboxed easily. Conlan isn’t a great 12 round fighter though and will always fade late on, but last night the early knockdown probably made him empty the tank quicker than normal too….But then if the fight is more even early on without any knockdowns, Wood might grind him down a bit quicker.

    too many variables. Conlan is the better boxer, but the problem is he doesn’t keep it up over 12 rounds against that kind of pressure. Of course it depends how Conlan is after last night.

    if both versions last night fought 10 times, I doubt either wins 7 or more. They’re pretty evenly matched.
    Well, you're obviously welcome to your opinion.

    I would personally recommend Conlan goes nowhere near this fight for a long time - if he even recovers from the first one.

    Dude may end up in a wheelchair or worse... It's a horrible matchup for him.

    He ended up getting caught on the cards after that huge knockdown in round one and I just don't see it happening again.

    Is that what you would back then? What do you think happens in a rematch?

    he'll lose the rematch too. instead of an achilles heel he's got an achilles chin. i wondered why he was being moved so slowly and i got my answer yesterday

    Wood got stopped in two rounds by McDonnell before and then dropped by Conlan and hurt a few times

    So it’s not like he has some granite chin, he’s tough, but if you’re getting stopped by McDonnell or dropped heavily by Conlan, there’s a fair chance it can happen again
    Is that what you would back then? What do you think happens in a rematch?

    Conan was acting in the instructions of the fight like it was his coronation. Can't celebrate until the fight is over. That was one scary knock out and he was super gassed out on top of that.

    Kudos to Wood for keeping pressing in the fight and looking crisp in the 12th.

    Santa Cruz holds the full belt, and he said he’s up for fighting the winner of last night (wood). But Santa Cruz is already the full champion so why does he need wood? and he can probably find bigger money fights in America

    Theres also the winner of Warrington v Kiko Martinez. Wood v Warrington would be a good money fight, both have big local followings, so I could see him pursuing that avenue if Warrington wins, but then Wood isn’t even a full champ, just a regular title so it’s not a unification with Warrington. So Warrington might be looking at a real unification instead if he beats Kiko.

    I suppose those are his two main options. I think if he doesn’t land any of those, the next best fight would be the Conlan rematch, people would be happy to see it again.

    i don’t see them looking for a fight with Navarrete, there’s probably a handful of bigger money fights for Wood, and less dangerous. Then guys like Lara are just high risk and they have no belts.

    If I was Wood at this stage, I’d just be going for the money. He isn’t going to be some super champ, I think there’s plenty of fighters in the division that beat him. He should try to make as much money as quick as possible.
    It's not about needing Wood. The WBA are going through a consolidation process to eliminate the excess belts and have one world champion. So LSC will be ordered to fight a mandatory against Wood. If they try to wriggle out of it he'll be stripped. That's why he says he's up for fighting the winner, because he know's it's coming. Clearly he doesn't want to fight at 126 anymore, as he moved up in weight and hasn't defended this belt for about 3 years. But after his loss to Davis, it's apparent he would be better off at 126. IMO he should've been stripped for not defending a long time ago, but clearly that won't happen. That said I'd very much like to see Wood vs LSC now, so bring it on. I'm not sure Wood can win, but I'd enjoy finding out.

    I suppose both fighters know they can hurt each other. So this is not as straight forward as, one fighter have some sort of clear conscience going into the rematch.

    Wood was dropped heavily, he survived maybe because it was early in the fight. Conlan was dropped late on, and was more fatigued at that point.

    But still he did experience Wood, overcome his power and keep on fighting. So he knows Wood is not just going to disappear.

    I am not sure what other fights Wood was aiming for next? I have not really watched ether fighters career etc.

    Maybe this rematch will happen straight away, if there are no other bigger more meaningful fights.
