Both men come into the bout on the back of starring roles in two of 2019’s fight of the year contenders. Prograis (24-1 20 KOs) travelled to London in October to take on Josh Taylor in a unification clash and the final of the World Boxing Super Series, with Scotsman Taylor edging out ‘Rougarou’ via Majority Decision in an all-out war.

In July, Hooker (27-1-3 18 KOs) hosted José Ramírez in a unification bout in Dallas, and the pair served up a back-and-forth shootout that Ramirez won via stoppage in the sixth round of a breathless contest.

Now the pair collide at a 143lbs catchweight in a fight that will lead the victor to World title action while the loser will face to tough route back to the summit – and both men know that this is a make-or-break night at a pivotal time in their respective careers.

[QUOTE=Snoop Frog;20427448]Yeah, huge size difference. I lean towards Prograis slightly.[/QUOTE] So do I, but...you never know. Hooker does have power and I think the pace will be slower than against Ramirez, which will suit Hooker.

[QUOTE=royjonesjrKTFO;20428214]Eddie Hearn loves the camera, doesn't he?[/QUOTE] All he's missing is waving some flags to become the second coming of Don King.

It all comes down to how much the Taylor fight took from Prograis. If Rougarou is stopped again, that would be a huge blow to his top-class ambition.

Eddie Hearn loves the camera, doesn't he?
