Regis Prograis and Danielito Zorrilla weigh their options
World Boxing Council super lightweight champion, Regis Prograis, will defend his title against Puerto Rican Danielito Zorrilla, on Saturday at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Prograis (28-1, 24 KOs) became the 140-pound world champion by knocking out Jose Zepeda in 11 rounds at Dignity Health in California last November.
The 34-year-old New Orleans fighter has defeated Juan Heraldez, Ivan Redkach and Tyrone McKenna in his most recent bouts.
While Zorrilla (17-1, 13 knockouts), promoted by former champion Miguel Cotto, has a golden opportunity to win the WBC green and gold title. The 29-year-old has faced the likes of Pablo César Cano and Arnold Barbosa Jr.
Both fighters faced each other for the last time before the fight at the official weigh-in. “Even Stephen,” as Prograis and Zorrilla registered exactly 139 pounds.
The fight is organized by Matchroom Boxing and will be broadcasted on DAZN.
