- Regis Prograis vs Devin Haney Looks To Be The Next Fight For Both Parties
- The WBC Super Lightweight Title Fight Was Originally Planned For Oct 28
- Haney Delaying Signing The Contract Means That The Original Date Has Been Lost
NOV 11 looks to be the new date for Regis Prograis vs Devin Haney.
Prograis’ trainer, Bobby Benson, told K.O. Artists Sports in an interview released today that the new date for the fight looks to be Saturday, November 11.
“Nov 11…we signed the contract for Nov 11.”
The clash between the WBC Super Lightweight champion and the Undisputed 135-pound king was originally targeted for October 28 in Las Vegas.
However, contracts were not finalized in time and Matchroom Boxing lost the planned site for the bout affecting the economics of the deal – that is according to Dan Rafael.
Regis Prograis vs Devin Haney Fight Breakdown
Prograis signed with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom fresh off his dominant stoppage win over Jose Zepeda to claim the WBC strap.
A far-from-impressive debut for the company saw him scrape to a split decision win over Danielito Zorrilla back in June.
Prograis has a three-fight deal with Matchroom and a mandatory challenger set in Spain’s dangerman Sandor Martin who many felt beat Teofimo Lopez in their bout late last year.
Haney claimed and defended the undisputed championship at the weight below with back-to-back near-shutout decision wins over George Kambosos.
The American debuted on ESPN PPV in May and claimed a controversial win over Vasyl Lomachenko.
‘The Dream’ will move up a weight class to challenge Prograis – in what could be his second PPV headliner – as a favourite but this is a tremendous matchup and it would come of little surprise if the 24-year-old came off second-best.
