      LEIGH WOOD returns to action this weekend as he defends his WBA world featherweight title against Mauricio Lara.

      Nottingham fighter Wood hasn’t been in the ring since his epic 12th-round knockout victory over Michael Conlan 11 months ago.

      Lara is best known for fighting Josh Warrington twice, knocking him out in the first and stopping the second after the Mexican suffered a cut from an accidental headbutt.

      Both Wood and Lara are big punchers and most will view this fight as the most explosive the featherweight division has to offer.

      Wood, who was promoted to WBA 126-pound outright champion earlier this year, was scheduled to fight Lara last year before he withdrew with injury.

      But now he has his chance against the feared Mexican, who is facing his first world title shot.

      What has been said?

      Wood He said: “I’d rather be an underdog and I love to prove people wrong.

      “People tweet me all the time and say, ‘this is a mismatch and I’m going to lose,’ but if you look at my Twitter, I retweet them because it feeds me.

      “Winning feeds me. Lara has a style that suits me. Conlan was wrong for me stylistically, but styles make the fights and I am confident in my ability.

      “If I approach this fight wrong, it could be brutal. Lara is good and we saw that in the first fight with Josh Warrington, but if I do what I plan, this fight won’t go halfway, I’m going to get Lara out of there.”
