Prograis vs. Zorrilla Weigh-in Results

Regis Prograis (28-1, 24 KOs) and Danielito Zorrilla (17-1, 13 KOs) weighed in today ahead of their super lightweight title fight on June 17. Fighters on their undercard also weighed in just before the two main event boxers. There were no issues with making weight; all fighters met the contracted limit for their prospective bouts

Prograis, who came in at 139 lbs, is making the first defense of his WBC super lightweight title. He won the vacant title by stopping Jose Zepeda in the eleventh round of their bout in November last year. This is also Prograis’ second reign as world champion. Previously, he held the WBA title when he defeated Kiryl Relikh in April 2019. Six months later, he lost that belt to eventual undisputed champion Josh Taylor.

Zorrilla also weighed in at 139 lbs. Originally, Liam Paro was to face Prograis but had to pull out of the fight due to injury. Zorrilla has already fought once this year, winning by first round knockout in Panama in a fight held at the welterweight limit. Despite taking the fight on a month’s notice, it appears Zorrilla had no issues making the weight.
