Back in February, Josh Warrington was thought to be taking a tune-up fight with Mauricio Lara before taking aim at the upper crust of the featherweight division.
Lara had other plans.
In an absolute stunner, Lara dominated Warrington from the outset, dropping him twice and then finishing the job in the ninth round to put the first blemish on Warrington’s career.
The two will meet again Saturday to see whether Lara’s win was a fluke or if the Mexican is the real deal. The rematch will take place at Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds, England.
The card also features undisputed women’s lightweight champion Katie Taylor putting her titles on the line against Jennifer Han.
