Wood vs. Warrington Rematch Set for May 18
Leigh Wood and Josh Warrington are gearing up for a rematch on May 18 in the United Kingdom, confirmed by Matchroom Boxing head Eddie Hearn. Following Wood’s stunning seventh-round comeback TKO against Warrington in October, fans can expect another heated showdown.
Wood, 35, snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, landing a crushing combo that halted the fight despite being behind on all three scorecards. Warrington, a two-time featherweight champ, aims to bounce back after a rough 1-3-1 streak in his last five bouts.
The proposed date is May 18, pending finalization with Nottingham Forest, who’s handling logistics around a big concert. Warrington, gracious in defeat, acknowledged Wood’s champion heart. Post the Warrington bout, Wood dropped the WBA featherweight title but eyes a shot at 130 pounds, putting that on hold for the rematch.
With both fighters open to the bout at 130 pounds, the rematch promises to be a gripping spectacle. Stay tuned for a night of redemption and unfinished business in the ring.
