Prograis Easily Handles Indongo In Two

Regis Prograis (21-0, 18 KOs) easily defeated Julius Indongo (22-2, 11 KOs) via second-round TKO to win the interim WBC Super Lightweight Championship.

Prograis dropped Indongo four times during the short fight — once in the first round and three times during the second. After Indongo was knocked down for the fourth time, the referee ruled that Indongo couldn’t take any more punishment.

“I felt his punches, he couldn’t punch, he couldn’t hurt me. I got a little reckless, but I got the job done, I can’t complain,” Prograis said. “I haven’t been able to show my full arsenal yet. I haven’t had an opponent that can bring it out of me. I get paid the same thing for the first round or the 12th round, so I might as well get them out early.”

The full WBC Super Lightweight Title, and likely the next opponent for the undefeated Prograis, will be decided next week when Jose Ramirez and Amir Imam face off.

Indongo has now lost two straight fights, getting finished quickly both times. The former WBA, IBF and IBO light welterweight champion lost those titles back in August, when he was knocked out by WBC/WBO champion Terence Crawford in the third round of their bout to make boxing’s first undisputed champion since Jermain Taylor.
