Wood (26-2) comes into this fight on a win streak of three fights. In October 2022, he outlasted Michael Conlan via TKO in the same arena where this main event is taking place. He was scheduled to meet Lara in September 2022, but had to withdraw due to an injured bicep. Now the champion faces his first real test and sees himself as an underdog in this title fight.
Lara (25-2-1) had an impressive 2022 knocking off fellow featherweights Emilio Sanchez and Jose Sanmartin by TKO. He looks to add Wood to his resume of beaten UK fighters, as back in 2021 he beat Josh Warrington by TKO. Lara represents Mexico and is looking to join a long list of prize fighters from his hometown in getting a taste of boxing royalty.
Lara is a -175 favorite per Draftkings Sportsbook, while the champion Wood checks in as a +210 underdog.
