Leigh Wood vs Josh Warrington LIVE: Boxing fight updates and results tonight after vicious KO

Tommy Fury explains why he has ‘never liked’ KSI ahead of crunch boxing match

Leigh Wood defends the WBA featherweight title against Josh Warrington tonight, as the British pair square off in Sheffield.

Wood, 35, is making the first defence of his second title reign, having lost then regained the WBA belt in back-to-back duels with Mauricio Lara earlier this year. In February, the Mexican stopped Wood in the latter’s hometown of Nottingham, but the Briton avenged the defeat with a points win in May.

He now puts the gold on the line against Warrington, a former two-time champion who has his own history with Lara. Warrington was also stopped by Lara in their first clash in 2021, before fighting him to a draw later that year – when the boxers clashed heads. The 32-year-old then stopped old rival Kiko Martinez in 2022, becoming IBF featherweight champion for the second time in his career, but he lost the title in his next fight – a points defeat by Luis Alberto Lopez.

The “Leeds Warrior” is aiming to get back to winning ways here, as he faces “Leighthal” in a tantalising showdown.

It was a left hook by Wood that started the finishing sequence, but he followed up with two right hooks and an extra left!

The latter of the two right hooks was the harshest blow, scraping across Warrington’s chin!

Wood vs Warrington LIVE: Round 7

Into the second half of this fight. Warrington is likely up, but Wood is still in it.

Three jabs in a row land for Warrington; the third is the best of the lot, snapping back Wood’s head.

Oh, wow. Warrington is docked a point for a shot to the back of the head. He was warned earlier in the fight, in fairness. For that to play a role, if the fight goes the distance, Wood will need to close the gap and win some more rounds, you’d think.

Both boxers land straight shots simultaneously. Warrington backs up Wood to the ropes and unloads a slew of body hooks.
