Regis Prograis Demolishes Julius Indongo in Two

Prograis' win has earned him a shot to face the victor of the March 17 bout between Amir Imam (21-1, 18 KOs) and Jose Ramirez (21-0, 16 KOs) for the vacant WBC super lightweight title. Prograis, of Houston by way of New Orleans, was dominant from the opening bell and has now scored knockouts in 14 of his last 15 fights. Indongo took this unsafe fight against Prograis on just three weeks' notice, once Prograis' original opponent, Ukraine's Viktor Postol (29-1, 12 KOs), pulled out of it due to a fractured thumb.

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.

Following the knockout, SHOWTIME analyst Steve Farhood spoke to the rising star in the wide-open and competitive 140-pound division.

The WBC No. 2 ranked fighter at 140 pounds immediately turned his attention to a possible matchup with the victor of next week's Imam-Ramirez matchup.

Prograis fought for the first time since his second-round destruction of previously unbeaten Joel Diaz Jr. nine months ago. That's when John-Lewis mercifully stopped the fight.

Prograis dropped Indongo with a jab just before the first round ended.

A right uppercut by Prograis seemed to hurt Indongo before that jab sent him to the canvas.

"I haven't been able to show my full arsenal yet, as far as my defense, as far as my footwork", Prograis said.

Despite dominating Friday night, Prograis wasn't completely satisfied.
