Leigh Wood is not pleased with being British champ. After protecting the Lonsdale featherweight band in February adhering to an emphatic standstill of Reece Mould, Wood aspires to proceed.
His kind in the last 3 years has actually been extremely remarkable with his only trouble being a slim factors loss to Liverpool’s James Dickens in an awesome fight that was perhaps the emphasize of MTK’s Golden Agreement event.
Dave Coldwell, Wood’s supervisor, is positive that his guy can accomplish a lot more.
“Believe me, Leigh is a very ambitious fighter,” disclosedColdwell “When I started working with him it was clear he wanted to operate at a high level and our plan was to get him there through the MTK competition. Although the fight with Dickens didn’t go his way, Leigh gave a brilliant account of himself and he wasn’t going to let that setback get in the way. He still wants to show everyone he’s capable of going to the top level and I’m hoping his recent win over Mould can give him the platform to push on to where I believe he can get to.”
Coldwell included, “The featherweight division, both domestically and on the international scene, is a very exciting weight class and I see plenty of potentially great fights for Leigh. There’s some interesting fights coming up that I like the look of and in my role as Leigh’s manager, I’ll definitely be throwing his name in for big opportunities. He impressed a lot of people against Mould, but there’s a lot more to come from him and you’ll hopefully see that this year.”
