Leigh Wood shocked the boxing world with an upset victory over the then WBA featherweight champion Can Xu. He produced a stunning display under the guidance of Ben Davison and his power shone through. He now goes against the highly touted Michael Conlan who many predicted would take the boxing world by storm since he turned professional. Conlan has a huge following and has chosen to come into the lions den for his first crack at a world title. Leigh will have the highly charged Nottingham crowd behind him and will be looking to do the city proud.
