Long Wait Almost Over For Regis Prograis Title Shot
Coming up Saturday night in Carson, CA, former WBA world junior welterweight champ Regis Prograis has been waiting, and waiting, to get another title shot. And now, over three years after losing a unified title bout to Josh Taylor, he’s going get it.
That happens when Prograis meets Jose Zepeda for the vacant WBC 140 lb. crown in the MarvNation promoted PPV main event,

Prograis (27-1, 23 KOs), was last in action in March in the Middle East of all places, when he knocked out Tyrone McKenna in the sixth round. It was his third victory since losing his belt to Taylor. And, in a conversation with our content partner Dan Rafael recently, he made clear that it hasn’t been easy waiting,
“It’s been three years of frustration…. I just thought that since the fight (Taylor split decision loss) was so close. I would get a title shot again, like “bang.” Maybe a fight or two, but then I’d be right back to get a title shot….all this frustration, ti’s just been building and building and building,” Prograis said.
