WBA featherweight champion LEIGH WOOD looks to defend his belt for this first time this weekend, taking on Irishman MICHAEL CONLAN live on DAZN from Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham.


WOOD shocked the world last time out as the 11/4 underdog beat Xu Can via TKO at Matchroom HQ to clinch the WBA featherweight title and claim his stake in the division.

Former Olympic bronze medallist CONLAN looks to continue a perfect start to the professional ranks, notching 16 wins since 2017 with a recent victory against fellow countryman T.J. Doheny for the WBA interim featherweight title and a shot against the champion Leigh Wood.
