Eddie Hearn Confirms Wood vs. Warrington Rematch: "Our Side is Done!" on May 18 at Proposed UK Stadium
Eddie Hearn, the influential boxing promoter, has delivered a pivotal update on the highly anticipated rematch between Leigh Wood and Josh Warrington. Set for May 18 at a proposed UK stadium, Hearn confidently states, “Our side is done!”
The UK has been witness to iconic boxing rivalries in recent years, and the upcoming Wood vs. Warrington showdown promises to be another thrilling chapter. Both fighters command passionate fan bases and proudly represent football clubs, Nottingham Forest and Leeds United, respectively.
This rematch follows their intense clash in October, where Wood, trailing on all scorecards, staged a dramatic comeback with a knockout punch that prompted the referee to stop the fight. The controversy surrounding the match has heightened anticipation for this eagerly awaited sequel, where Wood aims to defend his WBA world featherweight title.
Speaking on the MMA Hour, Hearn revealed, “May 18th is the proposed date. I’ve made it pretty clear, I want Wood against Warrington at the City Ground. We’re in talks with the club; they have a big concert the week after, so we’re just trying to get the logistics right. Not to put too much pressure on Nottingham Forest, we’ve got a fight ready to go, I believe May 18th, if we can get the deal done, we’re ready to make it happen.”
Stay tuned for updates on this exciting rematch.
