Regis Prograis: Whatever Relikh Tries, I Can Beat Him at It

WBC Diamond Champion Regis Prograis held a ‘Youth Training Camp’ at the Corner Man Boxing Club in Lafayette, Louisiana four days prior to the biggest fight of his career, the WBSS semi-final against WBA Champ Kiryl Relikh.

The training at the"no-nonsense" workout facilities was part of Prograis' ongoing community efforts which include providing experiences for various youth organizations and first responders. The participants were 50 kids between the ages of 7-15 from local boxing gyms, and USA Boxing.


“I am glad to be here to give you some inspiration so you can be just like me or you know what …maybe even better! said Prograis after a one-hour training with jabs, hooks, uppercuts and a motivational speech.

“You all have to have confidence in yourself no matter what,” said the Louisiana native. “Don’t look at somebody like myself and think I can’t be like him. Everybody doesn’t have to be a professional fighter or athlete. It’s all kinds of jobs you can do out there. The main thing is that you have confidence.”

“Thank you all for having me, you are all getting free tickets. This Saturday at the Cajundome you are going to watch the No. 1 fighter in the world!”

The event took place after Tuesday's media workout where all four combatants in Saturday's semi-finals, Nonito Donaire, Zolani Tete, Kiryl Relikh and Regis Prograis showed up in confident mood performing their sublime skills in front of the cameras.

Prograis is only days away from his bout against Belarus’ WBA World Champ, Kiryl Relik, but the ‘Rougarou’ doesn’t seem to be burdened by pressure.

“It is the biggest fight on my career on Saturday, but I’m ready, I’m confident,” said Prograis. “Whatever Relikh tries, I can beat him at it.”
