Regis “Rougarou” Prograis Assesses March 9 Foe Postol

He’s on the underrated list, but I do not think for much longer.

Regis Prograis has skills, solid, maybe special.

He gets a chance to spread the word on that when he gloves up next, March 9, against Viktor Postol.

I reached out to “Rougarou,” the Louisianan who makes Texas home now. What is his take on the 34 year old Postol, the 29-1 Ukrainian?

“I think he’s a tall, rangy fighter with deceptive power and a high boxing IQ,” Prograis told me. “He’s only lost one fight to Terence Crawford, who is the number two P4P fighter in the world. I think his record speaks for itself. This will definitely be a tough fight.”

Prograis is promoted by Lou Dibella, who spoke on the stakes of the tango.

“More is at stake than winning a WBC interim belt and then fighting the Ramirez/ Imam winner to establish the one WBC 140 lb champion,” Dibella said. “Regis has the opportunity to immediately raise his level of competition and prove that he’s one of the best. Postol is a former world champ, a big name in international boxing, and carries a resume with only one loss. That one loss was to a pound for pound great fighter in a distance fight. This is a measuring stick for Regis and an opportunity to prove that he’s what he says he is, one of the rising stars in the game. March 9 can be a life changing night for the Rougarou, Regis Prograis, on Showtime Boxing!”
