MarvNation Promotions Wins Rights To Jose Zepeda Vs. Regis Prograis

The winner for the rights to the WBC junior welterweight title fight has been announced, but it isn’t a promotion many have heard of.

MarvNation, a promotion out of California, won the rights to the title fight between Regis Prograis and Jose Zepeda at Tuesday’s purse bid with $2.4 million, ESPN’s Mike Coppinger reported. TGB/PBV had the second highest bid with $1.2 million.

Zepeda (36-2, 28 KOs) is riding off of a five-fight winning streak, which includes wins over Ivan Baranchyk, Jose Pedraza and Josue Vargas.

Zepeda once held the WBC super lightweight belt, but lost it to Ramirez in 2019 via a 12-round majority decision.

Prograis lost to former undisputed junior welterweight Josh Taylor in 2019, but has been on a three-fight winning streak since then.

“I’ve been waiting three years for this, basically. I was a champion in 2019. Now to become a two-time world champion will mean everything,” Prograis told Thaboxingvoice.
