Regis Prograis is the current WBC junior welterweight world champion, a title he won when the only man to beat Josh Taylor was stripped of his title due to inactivity, and Prograis was able to stop Jose Zepeda, in the fall of 2022. Yet, Prograis' toughest opponent of the past few years is activity.
Prograis who oddly has not had a fight announced as both Jose Ramirez and Teofimo Lopez went in a different direction instead of pursuing a mandatory title fight against Prograis. Prograis has now taken to his social media platforms to inform the world, that hopefully, his 2023 is now looking better.
Though it is ambiguous it appears that Prograis is talking about his previous promoter, Probellum, which is no longer an active promotional entity. His contract, nor the details of his career have been rather unclear since leaving Lou DiBella’s DiBella Entertainment in 2020.
“So I am going to be taking a lot of things into my own hands,” said Prograis. “So, yeah, bro real good news, I am a free agent.”
Prograis, who is on the cusp of being a pound-for-pound fighter, has really struggled to get any momentum as he hasn’t had a promoter since Probellum seemingly stopped doing shows, and no major network has been behind him seemingly ever.
“Now I feel like I will get all the really good fights, the fights everybody wants to see, [the big name fights],” furthered Prograis. “My goal is to clean up the division, [win all the world titles], and [expletive] about to get popping right now. [SIC]”
