Leigh Wood scores comeback knockout in unbelievable battle with Michael Conlan

Leigh Wood scored one of the most dramatic, unbelievable comeback knockouts you’ll ever see tonight, roaring back to stop Michael Conlan in the 12th and final round of their main event in Nottingham, England.

It was a truly unbelievable fight, with Conlan looking absolutely class for most of the bout, dropping Wood hard right at the end of the first round and owning the ring for much of the first even rounds.

But with Wood doggedly refusing to fold in the fight no matter how many good shots Conlan landed to the head and body, the fight just kept going, with both men fatigued and showing the signs of war in the latter rounds.

Conlan (16-1, 8 KO) was knocked down late in round 11, and then hurt and knocked through the ropes and out of the ring about halfway into round 12. The fight was immediately stopped, and it became clear very quickly that there was real concern about Conlan.

Conlan was eventually taken out on a stretcher, reportedly, though there have been some reports that he was awake and responding backstage.

Like Leigh Wood and promoter Eddie Hearn in their post-fight comments, for now we will just say this was an excellent fight, an amazing display of heart and passion from both men, and send our best wishes to Michael Conlan and his family.
