SAN FRANCISCO – Devin Haney weighed more than Regis Prograis when they stepped on the California State Athletic Commission’s scale Friday.

Haney came in at exactly 140 pounds for his debut at the junior welterweight limit during their official weigh-in Friday morning at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. Prograis was one pound lighter, 139, for one of his two highest-profile title defenses within the division he has competed almost exclusively since he made his pro debut 11½ years ago.

Their weights were revealed publicly during a staged ceremonial weigh-in Friday afternoon at Chase Center, the home arena for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors. Prograis and Haney engaged in a prolonged faceoff and talked trash to each other one last time before they left the stage.

Haney (30-0, 15 KOs), the former undisputed lightweight champion, moved up five pounds to challenge Prograis (29-1, 24 KOs) because it had become too physically taxing to squeeze his 5-foot-9 frame down to the lightweight limit of 135 pounds. They’ll fight for the WBC super lightweight title that Prograis, also a former WBA champ, won by knocking out Jose Zepeda in the 11th round of their November 2022 bout at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

The 25-year-old Haney will attempt to become a world champion in a second weight class against a powerful southpaw who is perhaps the most formidable champion in the 140-pound division. The Henderson, Nevada resident is listed by most sportsbooks as a 4-1 favorite, despite the 34-year-old Prograis’ power, accomplishments and experience at the weight at which they’ll box.

Their 12-round title fight will headline a four-fight DAZN Pay-Per-View show. The official weights for the six-fight Prograis-Haney undercard are listed below.
