English boxer Josh Warrington will attempt to rewrite the script tonight at the Emerald Headingley Stadium in his hometown of Leeds when he takes on Mexican boxer Mauricio Lara for the second time this year and we have all the details on how you can watch Lara vs Warrington 2 online.
Back in February at the SSE Arena in London, 30-year-old Josh "The Leeds Warrior" Warrington and 23-year-old Mauricio "Bronco" Lara met in the ring for a featherweight showdown. While Warrington wanted to "put Leeds on the map" at their previous encounter by becoming the city's first male boxing world champion, Lara proved to be quite a formidable opponent.
Lara managed to dominate Warrington from start to finish and he even managed to put him on the canvas during the fourth round with a left hook. However, it was during the ninth round that Lara once again knocked him down with a left hook before the fight was immediately called off by the referee. Not only did Warrington lose to Lara who he expected to easily defeat, he also suffered the first ever loss of his career during their match.
Going into tonight's fight, Warrington has a fight record of 30 wins, seven wins by knockout and just one loss. Lara meanwhile has a fight record of 23 wins, 16 wins by knockout and two losses. While Warrington has spent the time since their first fight recovering and training in Leeds, Lara aims to show the world that he's the real deal tonight. Will Warrington get his revenge or will Lara solidify his status as one of boxing's best with back-to-back wins against The Leeds Warrior?
