Regis Prograis and Jose Zepeda: A battle for the ages

Both Regis Prograis and Jose Zepeda have been in their share of battles. Both come from the World Boxing Super Series, a great tournament format for professional boxers that’s produced names like Oleksandr Usky, Naoya Inoue, and Josh Taylor.

Regis Prograis once held the WBA and WBC Diamond Super Lightweight titles before losing them in a majority decision against the aforementioned Taylor in the WBSS. Since then, he’s had nothing but dynamite in his hands. Prograis has scored three TKO’s since his loss to Taylor going 3-0 and clawing his way back to a title. That streak has consisted of Juan Heraldez, Ivan Redkach (this was on the Jake Paul-Ben Askren card), and Tyrone McKenna. He looks to take on the tough Zepeda and reclaim a World Title and get another shot at the Jack Taylor.

Jose Zepeda is another fantastic boxer and has a very fan friendly style. His war with Ivan Baranchyk had a mind boggling seven knockdowns in a back-and-forth fight. Check out the video below!

Zepeda captured the WBC World Super Lightweight title against Jose Carlos Ramirez and now gets his second shot at a World Title with his first round knockout of Josue Vargas in October 0f 2021.

The winner of this fight will have the opportunity to grab some attention for the big dogs in the division, not like they truly need it. Both Prograis and Zepeda are fun and skilled boxers. Seeing either of them match up against Jose Pedraza, Gary Antuanne Russell, Sandor Martin, Jack Catterall, and the new kid, Teofimo Lopez. Then, of course, Josh Taylor, the former undisputed champion. Don’t miss this one. It’s sure to bang.
