Regis Prograis is a rarity in boxing these days. He gets the job done inside the distance. With the recent, distinguished dominance of Floyd Mayweather Jr and Andre Ward, the art of the stoppage is, in some quarters, no longer perceived as the roots of boxing. But with 15 fights and 12 stoppages, rising 140lbs star Prograis is swiftly gaining recognition as a pugilist worth watching. His high-octane victory over Amos Cowart [WUD8] on ShoBox was a perfect example. “It was a good fight for television and I was able to show my skills,” Prograis told Boxing Monthly. “But he hit me with some shots that I should have avoided, but I learned a lot from that fight."
