WBA World Champion & WBC Diamond Champion Regis ‘Rougarou’ Prograis will be travelling to the UK after having fought the quarter and semi-final in his home state of Louisiana. IBF World Champion & WBC Silver Champion Josh ‘The Tartan Tornado’ Taylor boxed both of his preliminary bouts in Glasgow, and is now moving to neutral ground.

Prograis and Taylor entered the WBSS and the quest for the Ali Trophy as the two highest-seeded boxers in a loaded Super-Lightweight bracket. No.1 seed Prograis earned his spot in the final by outdoing Terry Flanagan on points last October, and then went on to stop Kiryl Relikh in six rounds and take the WBA World title in the semi in late April. Meanwhile, No.2 seed Taylor stopped Ryan Martin in round 7 last November, and then proceeded to decision Ivan Baranchyk to claim the IBF World title in May.

[QUOTE=Pantera_;20128669]Wow he's in superb condition. Taylor won't see the final bell. Progrias by 8th round knockout.[/QUOTE] Prograis will want to fight at his usual pace, picking his pot shots etc but Josh will force him to fight at a tempo…

I really can't see him grinding no harder than anyone else but they like to say this whenever they get a photo shoot!

Comment by Citizen Koba on 10-17-2019

They're both top class fighters and while I'm leaning towards Regis based on their last performances (I rated the two Belorusians, Relikh and Baranchyk of about the same level as each other) I wouldn't be at all surprised if Taylor…
