Super Lightweight Regis Prograis (21-0, 18 KOs) punched his ticket for a shot at the WBC title with a resounding stoppage win over the former unified WBA/IBF world champion Julius Indongo (22-2, 11 KOs) on Friday night at the Deadwood Mountain Grand in Deadwood, South Dakota.
In a clash for the interim title, Prograis made light work of Indongo, knocking him down in the first before the eventual end came in the second following another three trips to the canvas.
It was a statement from one of the divisions best, who immediately turn his attention to the winner of next week’s Imam-Ramirez matchup.
“I want the real title now, and I don’t think those two dudes will fight me after tonight,” said Prograis. “Indongo only had one loss to Terrence Crawford, the pound for pound best, and I stopped him a round before Crawford did. I don’t see anybody trying to fight me right now.”
