Leigh Wood v Mauricio Lara Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

British boxing fans already know the power Mauricio Lara has in his fists after he destroyed Josh Warrington at The SSE Arena in London in February 2021, and unfortunately, I think he will do the same to Leigh Wood.

Wood is an amazing fighter, and he is the WBA featherweight champion for that reason, but Lara is in a different league.

The Nottingham champion has a professional record of 28 fights, 26 wins and two defeats. Those defeats came against Jazza Dickens and Gavin McDonnell, and although those defeats were a while ago, I feel Lara will be able to expose any weaknesses Wood has.

Lara has 25 wins under his belt from 28 fights with two defeats and one draw – that draw was in the rematch against Warrington after a clash of heads.

The crowd at the Nottingham Arena will be 100% behind Wood, but Lara thrives on that hostile environment. I am backing the Mexican to be too strong and quick for Wood, and he will get a late stoppage in the 10th round with Wood running out of gas.
