Prograis: There is Nobody in WBSS Tourney That Can Beat Me!

Regis Prograis beat Terry Flanagan unanimously on points and Ivan Baranchyk stopped Anthony Yigit in round seven in two exciting Ali Trophy Super-Lightweight Quarter-Finals at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans.

The judges scored it 119-108, 118-109, 117-110 all in favour of New Orleans native Prograis who retained his interim WBC title. In the semi-final, ‘Rougarou’ will face Belarus’ WBA Super World Champion Kiryl Relikh.

“I want to bring big-time boxing back to New Orleans and guess what, I did it!” said Prograis after the fight.

“Flanagan was a tough fighter and I knew he would be hard to get to. But I had the most fun out there tonight than I’ve ever had from Round 1 to Round 12.”

Prograis tried to finish the fight in round eight when he hit Flanagan with a crushing straight left hand and dropped his hard-fighting opponent for the first time in his career. ‘Turbo’ came back but Prograis controlled the remainder of the fight and cruised to his first 12 round decision.

“Now the world is seeing what I can do. There’s nobody in this tournament who can beat me. The Ali Trophy is mine, it doesn’t matter who I fight!”

In Saturday’s second Ali Trophy Quarter-Final for the vacant IBF World Super-Lightweight Championship Belarus’ Ivan Baranchyk stopped Sweden’s Anthony Yigit after seven rounds of action.

The contest was stopped at the end of the seventh, due to the state of the left eye of Yigit who showed tremendous heart throughout the fight.

”You never want a fight to be stopped,” said Yigit. “Maybe it was the right decision. Our game plan was to take him later on. Because they stopped the fight, I couldn’t fulfill it. He is a hard hitter, congrats to him!”

Baranchyk credited Yigit for his performance.

"Anthony is a tough fighter - he gave everyone a good show and a good fight. This was a tough fight but I won,” said big punching Baranchyk and praised his coach Pedro Diaz.

“He is a good coach. I love him and with him, I will win the Ali Trophy!”

Baranchyk now faces the winner of November 3rd’s Josh Taylor vs Ryan Martin in the semi-final.

“I believe Taylor will win the fight,” said Baranchyk.

[QUOTE=cotto#1p4p;19231913]These people have no idea! I think if Postol wins his next fight, they'll match both of them against each other. If not I'd love to see Subriel KO Flanaggan or Yigit.[/QUOTE]To much power for all of them lol...

[QUOTE=boogbx;19231689]prograis vs baranchyk will be a damn good fight. Baranchyks stock definitely rose as he looks like the superior boxer between him and prograis. Only thing is can he hurt Prograis, prograis is that guy I give the 1 punch…

Rougarou is a beast but he needs to learn how to combine his defense with his offense and only then where NO ONE absolutely beats him at 140! I think a Jose Ramirez who has more time with Robert Garcia…
