On Friday, March 9, 2018, Regis Prograis proved once again that he is a force to be reckoned with in the 140-pound division as he blasted former world champion Julius Indongo (22-2, 11 KOs) in just two rounds.
Prograis pushed Indongo back repeatedly with a stiff jab and showed early on that he had the ability to land clean on the Namibian native.
As Round 1 came to a close, Indongo was dropped with as series of punches. After that it was only a matter of time before the end would come as Prograis patiently stalked his man behind solid jabs and strong overhand rights.
After dropping Indongo three more times in Round 2–for a total of four knockdowns in the fight–the referee called a halt to the bout.
Speaking with Showtime’s Steve Farhood after his big win, Prograis made one thing clear, he believes he owns his division.
“The 140-pound division is mine,” said Prograis.
Prograis, who picked up the interim WBC title, now awaits the winner of the Jose Ramirez vs. Amir Imam fight to get a crack at the full WBC title.
