Lara stripped of title at weigh-ins

Mauricio Lara (26-2-1, 19 KOs) fell short of the featherweight limit at the official weigh-in before the rematch with Lee Wood (26-3, 16 KOs). Lara showed 58.9 kg on the scales, Wood - 57.1 kg. The Mexican thus lost the WBA world title, which only a Brit can win on Saturday night in Manchester. In February, Lara defeated Wood by TKO in the seventh round.
