Mauricio Lara’s Betting Outlook vs Wood

Lara stopped Wood in their first contest in February and looks to go 2-0 over his in-ring adversary this weekend.

Following the seventh-round stoppage in their initial fight, Lara has stated that he wants to garner the stoppage victory even quicker this time out.

‘Bronco’ proved once again why he is regarded by many as the hardest punching 126-pounder in the sport today.

Wood enacted his match clause and ‘Leigh-thal’ will be getting his desired shot at redemption in a quick turnaround effort.

Jose Sanmartin, win via KO Fight 2 Michael Conlan, win via TKO
Emilio Sanchez, win via KO Fight 3 Can Xu, win via TKO
Josh Warrington, Technical Draw Fight 4 Reece Mould, win via TKO


Josh Warrington seemingly awaits the winner of this contest and is someone who has a level of rivalry with both men here.

This would present another big money fight beyond this sophomore affair between Lara and Wood. But all eyes are on Saturday night at this juncture.

Leigh Wood’s Betting Outlook vs Lara

Wood boxed soundly in the early goings of the fight despite the eventual outcome not favoring him. In this immediate rematch, he looks to sustain those positive earlier efforts through the entirety of the bout to tie up the series with Lara.

Leigh Wood has shown his ability to shock the boxing world and come back from adversity in the two previous outings he had before encountering Lara. Can he do so once more in the coming days?

YouTube video

Both have an identical reach, height, and stance but at the same time very different stylistic proclivities.

Lara’s power as mentioned is a big variable for him whereas the fight IQ and sustained approach over the long haul are more within Wood’s wheelhouse.

Mauricio Lara vs Leigh Wood 2 Prediction

This prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds and I do not see this one being determined by the verdict of the ringside judges.

Ultimately, I think there is good value in prop bets centered on Lara winning via TKO or KO and Lara winning between rounds 4-6.

Pick: Mauricio Lara (-265)
