Featherweight contender Michael Conlan has no recollection of the vicious knockout that he suffered at the hands of Leigh Wood this past Saturday in Nottingham.

Conlan heavily dropped Wood in the very first round. with the WBA 'regular' champion badly hurt and requiring several rounds to fully recover.

In the eleventh, Wood scored a flash knockdown near the end of the round.

When the twelfth began, Wood came out swinging with heavy punches, while Conlan appeared to be running out of steam.

When Wood pinned Conlan against the ropes, he connected with a right hand that knocked the Irish boxer unconscious and right through the ropes.

The fight was quickly waved off. Conlan was taken to a local hospital for precautionary tests.

Despite the scary ending, Conlan is very eager to get Wood in the ring for a rematch.

Because the contest was a mandatory fight, there is no rematch clause involved for either boxer.

"When I woke up I was like 'what happened? Did I lose?'," Conlan told BBC Sport before the reality kicked in.

"I was devastated. I was annoyed, I got a bit frustrated and I was confused. There was a realization as things started to kick in. I believed it was going to be my night, it was going to be my night until that punch. It's just unfortunate but these things happen.

"I want a rematch. I think the performance, with me leading on the cards, deserves a rematch. I think I've slept an hour. I've been on my phone looking at things. I've been off social media so I was seeing everything and there was loads of positive stuff. At the same time, I lost. I hate losing. It's the worst feeling in the world for me."
