The feature to the Matchroom card at 02 went back and forth. Wood went back and forth, lefty to righty, staying lefty most of the contest.
He closed the show after Warrington had some decent luck being aggressive and strafing him.
In round seven, Wood boxed smart, on the front foot. He had an extra point in his pocket, for Warrington hitting behind the head. And he decided to go for the kill at the tail end of the round.
A right hook clipped the Leeds man, and Wood felt it. Left hook-right hook-left hook, and so forth, Warrington hit the deck.
He wouldn't and couldn't beat a count.
