Regis Prograis shows interest to fight Adrien Broner amid heated feud with undisputed champ Devin Haney

Regis Prograis took on Danielito Zorrilla in a twelve-round bout last weekend on June 17th at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The WBC junior welterweight champion successfully defended his belt in what was a razor-close contest that went the distance.

Prograis barely managed to defeat his adversary as he got his hands raised by a split decision win. However, the American boxer looks unfazed by his lackluster performance as he is aiming to improve and set his eyes on a new opponent. 

Regis Prograis intensifies rumors of a possible bout against Adrien Broner next

Following his close split-decision win, Regis Prograis went on Twitter and revealed who he wants to defend his title against next. The American boxer expressed his wish of fighting Adrien Broner and aims to get inside the ring at a timeframe between November and December.

Former multiple division world champion Adrien Broner last stepped inside the ring against Bill Hutchinson on June 9th. The welterweight contender picked up a one-sided unanimous decision win over Hutchinson to improve his staggering record to 35-4-1. With that being said, this fight makes sense as Broner is riding a dominating performance from his last bout.

Some fans are unhappy with Regis Prograis calling out Adrien Broner as they believe that the latter is not at the same level he once was. There are mixed opinions regarding this matchup on social media.

Regis Prograis and Devin Haney feud explained

Ahead of his first title defense against Danielito Zorrilla, Regis Prograis showed his interest to fight Devin Haney inside the boxing ring. After successfully defending his WBC junior welterweight title, Prograis called Devin Haney on face time and had a conversation with him at the dinner table. 

During this conversation, Regis called out Haney and also claimed that he would annihilate The Truth.

“What’s up? Me and you next. I’m a f**k you up. Gonna tell you in front of your dad. I’m gonna whoop your a**. I’m gonna bust your a**,” said the WBC junior welterweight champion. Following this Facetime exchange, Prograis and Haney entered into a war of words on Twitter. 

Eddie Hearn who is the promoter of Regis has revealed that he wants to book a fight between Prograis and Haney for the undisputed titles. But amidst the growing back-and-forth exchanges, Regis calling out Broner dulls the rivalry.

Nonetheless, a matchup between Haney and Prograis could be exciting should it actually take place. But as of now, it looks like the undisputed champion has other plans.
