    Twice purse bids have been pushed back, the latest one this week, yet pictures tonight show Leigh has just undergone surgery.

    Looks now like either the fight won't happen or else will be pushed back to next year. Strange to ask for the extension while knowing surgery is scheduled.

    That's the point we've reached now where we scratch our heads if there isn't a rematch.

    Like Wood, has come through the hard way so I wish him well against Conlan who has had everything handed to him after a great am career and only in his last fight Vs Doheny has he finally looked like he could possibly mix it at world level.

    I meant the Can Xu rematch. I think he had a rematch clause in there. It's not just Eddie who puts them in to be fair. No need to see it if that the best Can Xu offers now. Wood would be a good step up for Conlan regardless of the paper belt.

    Leigh Wood was excellent against Can Xu

    As for Conlan, he just doesn't do it for me.... can't get excited for any of his fights.

    Very true ref the rematch lol.

    Wood should win this, Conlan does not throw nearly as many punches as him and is a non puncher, especially at 126lbs. Should stick to super bantam.
