Leigh Wood makes the first defense of the WBA featherweight world title he won last time, courtesy of a late knockout win over China’s Can Xu.

The Englishman was the underdog for that bout but was in control throughout and looked well on his way to a comfortable points decision before taking out the fighter from Beijing in the final round. It was a dramatic fight, an emotional end for the new champion and an evening that will live long in the memory of Team Wood.

Will his reign at the top of the featherweight division prove to be short-lived? That’s the hope of Northern Ireland’s Michael Conlan with the Belfast puncher aiming to wrestle the WBA strap from his opponent’s waist.

Conlan is an unbeaten fighter who has spent much of his career in the United States, where he enjoys a huge fanbase. Many fight fans based in the US will have a keen eye on how this bout plays out, and Mick will want to put on a show.

This looks to have all the ingredients of a classic.

Two fighters completely convinced they have what it takes to win this bout and progress their careers.

Will Wood hold onto the belt he worked so hard to get, or will Conlan prove he’s the future of the division by winning in England and setting up an exciting year?

The winner will move towards the division’s biggest names, including Emanuel Navarrete, Leo Santa Cruz, and Gary Allen Russell Jr.

Gambling on the winner of the fight is the most popular approach from bettors, but it isn’t the only option.

Wood vs Conlan is a perfect example of a bout where there’s value to be found by digging deeper, looking beyond the fight-winner betting market and keeping your options open.

If you were to back Conlan for the win, you’d have a great chance of making the correct prediction and landing the return on your bet, but any profits would be small as you are gambling on the favorite.

That leaves you with an option to increase your stake to get a potential return worth having or look through the specials, taking a bit more of a gamble.

We’d always advise going with the latter of those two options as it’s never a great idea to increase your stake.

The more you bet, the higher your returns will be if you are correct, but if Wood pulls off another upset, as he did in his last bout, it could turn out to be a harsh lesson for those who went big on Conlan.

That’s why we are supporting him in the method of victory market and will be taking Conlan to win on points at attractive odds.
