Eddie Hearn, Matchroom Boxing promoter, already stated that he would like the winner of the upcoming title fight between Devin Haney and Regis Prograis to match up against Ryan Garcia in February or March. Prograis matches those sentiments and offers another name to ponder as well.
“Teo, Ryan, for me, the big fights. That’s all I want now. I don’t want the small fights. I want the big pay-per-view fights. That’s what I want right now,” said Prograis.
Prograis has a stern test in front of him in Haney and will be one that he cannot overlook. Given the challenge he’s set to face, Prograis’ attitude is refreshing as he is embracing the fight to offer fans a true matchup to witness.
“I think the boxing fans are tired of putting these fighters against fighters that they know they’re going to win. We need to have these fights that you don’t know. You don’t which side is going to win. I have no expectations. I’m ready to go, and as long as it’s packed, I’m happy with it,” said Prograis.
Ryan Garcia, who is set to face Oscar Duarte on December 2nd, last fought Gervonta Davis, where they sold 1.2 million PPV buys. Teofimo Lopez, who last fought in June, holds the WBO junior welterweight belt. Both of these men offer great pros for Prograis and Haney, and as long as one of these matchups takes place, the fans will be the true winners.
