Leigh Wood

about

From fighting out of leisure centres to selling out arenas, WBA Featherweight champion Leigh Wood has been through it all.

After losing a decision verdict to Jazza Dickens in early 2020, Wood's link up with trainer Ben Davison proved a masterstroke.

He returned from a year-long lay-off with a stoppage win over Reece Mould before knocking out Can Xu in the 12th to win the WBA strap that summer.

Wood saved a career-best performance for his Nottingham homecoming against Michael Conlan, climbing off the canvas in the first round to produce one of the most devastating finishes of all-time in the 12th.

Cult hero Carl Froch has reluctantly even relinquished his title as the ‘Sheriff of Nottingham’ to Wood.
