Prograis Denies Claims That A Fight With Haney Has Been Agreed For December 9th

Regis Prograis has denied that a fight with Devin Haney has been officially confirmed for December 9th, 2023.

The fight was reportedly agreed after months of negotiations, just when things appeared to be slipping away. The bout would see Haney’s first fight at 140 against the WBC champion. And at the age of 34, Prograis is keen on getting the biggest fights out there. Both fighters have something to prove. Haney’s last fight was a controversial unanimous-decision win over Vasiliy Lomachenko. Meanwhile, Prograis struggled during his win in front of his home fans when he faced Danielito Zorrilla. So, clearly there is plenty on the line.

Despite that being the case, Prograis has denied that anything is official. The WBC champion confirmed that his side of the deal had been signed, but when it came to Haney, that was not the case. Therefore, a fight with Adrian Broner remains possible if Haney does not sign the deal.

“I signed the contract five weeks ago, six weeks ago. I’m just waiting for the other side. Yeah, we just waiting on that now, that’s all. Ain’t nothing a done deal until both sides is official. It can’t be a done deal. Anyway, we’re not worried about that right now,” Prograis

A failure on Haney’s part could only be explained if another major fight was being considered. And at 140, Teofimo Lopez would fit that bill, given the rivalry between the two. So, as of now, the ball is in Haney’s court.
