Josh Warrington’s rematch against Mauricio Lara resulted in a technical draw after the Mexican suffered an early bad cut – .


JOsh Warrington and Mauricio Lara’s highly anticipated rematch ended in a short-lived technical draw at Leeds on Saturday night.

After a fascinating first round and a half, Lara suffered a terrible gash just above her left eye in an accidental head knocking.

The Mexican received treatment in his corner after the second round but was deemed unfit to continue by the ring doctor and referee Steve Gray called the fight off.
As there were less than four rounds completed, a decision was not possible and the bout was declared a technical draw.
It was a hugely disappointing end to what was shaping up to be a night to remember in Yorkshire, with over 20,000 fans in attendance to cheer on home favorite Warrington in a brilliant atmosphere at Headingley Stadium in Leeds which came to a head during the ‘a tingling in the spine. ring walk.
The former IBF featherweight champion was looking to avenge his first career loss to previously little-known Lara in London in February – a result that was one of the biggest upheavals seen in a British boxing ring these days. last years.
And Warrington made an encouraging start to the procedure, scoring Lara with a quick combination that included a piercing right hand and offering an infinitely better start than seven months ago, defending much more closely to avoid her opponent’s considerable power.
The second round was a lively affair as Lara chased on the front foot and sought to let go of her hands, with Warrington defending himself well and trying to sharply counter whenever possible, with the duo then clashing heads.
The cut didn’t seem too bad at first, but it quickly split open and became a huge injury by the time he came back to his corner.
