Leigh Wood faces China's Can Xu for the WBA World Featherweight Championship title today, Saturday July 31st at 10pm BST.

Can Xu vs Leigh Wood will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN, online and through the DAZN app. Follow our guide on how to watch a Xu Can vs Leigh Wood live stream, from anywhere in the world.
While the amateurs fight for gold, silver and bronze at the Tokyo Olympics, Matchroom boxing brings us a sold-out professional bout between Xu "Monster" Can and Britain's Leigh "Leigh-thal" Wood.
Xu and Wood have vowed to 'give it their all' for boxing fans when they square off for the epic featherweight world title clash, and although inactive for 20 months, Xu reckons he's fully prepared.
"Leigh Wood is a great fighter and I’m taking this fight very seriously,” Xu told Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn. “Myself and Leigh Wood will present a big show on Saturday night for the fans. I will take this victory back to my family. All I’m thinking about is Leigh Wood.
"I have to be extremely focused on Saturday night. I truly believe that I’m going to win this fight. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy and there might be swings in the tide, but I’ve got a lot of power and that’s going to be key in getting me over the line."
As if that wasn't exciting enough, Campbell Hatton, son of Manchester's Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton, will be fighting Jakub Laskowski on the undercard. Conor Benn vs Adrian Granados will be rescheduled at a later date.
