Today at 2 pm ET streaming live on DAZN, Matchroom’s Fight Camp is back from Matchroom HQ in England, with an adjusted but still solid main event.
Xu Can will defend his WBA featherweight belt against Leigh Wood in the main event, after Conor Benn vs Adrian Granados was scrapped a couple of days ago.
We’ll have live updates and results in this stream:
How to Watch Xu Can vs Wood
To be clear here, the WBA still ridiculously recognize Leo Santa Cruz as their “super world champion” at featherweight, but Santa Cruz hasn’t fought in that division since Feb. 2019, moving up to 130 to win their “super world title” at 130 lbs in Nov. 2019, which he then lost to Gervonta Davis in Oct. 2020. The most likely reason for this is that Santa Cruz carries more name value than Xu Can does, and if Leo decides he wants to return to 126 lbs, the WBA would probably rather have him as their top titleholder for the bigger sanctioning fees and all that.
The card will also feature Tommy McCarthy and Chris Billam-Smith fighting for three belts at cruiserweights, with McCarthy’s European title, Billam-Smith’s Commonwealth title, and the vacant British title all on the line, plus we’ll see a return for Anthony Fowler against Rico Mueller, Avni Yildirim taking on Jack Cullen, and Campbell Hatton getting a main card slot while we’re urged not to judge him too harshly.
