We have a fight. Both boxers weighed in successfully for the much anticipated World Boxing Super Series super lightweight final tomorrow evening at London’s O2 Arena.
New Orleans WBA Champion Regis Prograis had an initial scare weighing a pound over the 10 stone (140lbs) limit, but after shedding his underwear checked in at 9st 13lbs 15oz. Scotland’s IBF Champion Josh Taylor made the limit at first attempt (9st 13lb 13oz).
Following the weigh-in the verbal exchanges continued with Prograis saying “It’s gonna be a bloody night for sure…someone’s gonna get stopped” motioning in Taylor’s direction. The Scot took the dais and responded “I made it okay, he looks like he’s on his feet dead”. Following up with “He’s gonna go back to America with his tail between his legs !”
Tune in on Sky Sports Box Office or DAZN for what promises to be a mouthwatering fight between two undefeated fighters at the peak of their powers.
As Michael Buffer said “Someone’s O’s gotta go” !
