    Default Re: Regis Prograis vs. Josh Taylor on Chisora v Parker bill.

    I'm a fan of Taylor, but some of the stuff he was saying was pointless. Bringing up the headlock thing like it meant something, when it was all fun and games, then trying to imply Prograis was trying to get out of the tournament. If Prograis had deadlines, then they needed to be met, once they were, fight was on. I'm sure Prograis would have preferred not to travel, but he doesn't seem like the type to avoid anyone. He was the smallest (and only) guy in the room to stand up to Chisora, while Taylor sat quietly.

    The head lock comment was tongue in cheek, even Prograis knew it, remember these interviews are carefully orchestrated, directed and edited, there's lots of stuff cut out. It is obvious they have 100% respect, the only little differences are Taylor has an old school Brit mentality (we wouldn't say we're a superstar even if we believed it) whereas Prograis is a typical super confident American who believes the limelight is his destiny.

    Prograis has done more press in London than any fighter ever, I can't believe how much media he's done, he's literally been like a tourist. And come across as a great guy to boot.

    Off the top probably the fight I'm most anticipating this year. Can't see the vid from here but these guys are two of the most genuinely confident fighters going. I like Prograis to win but honestly wonder about him giving up his head in spots in order to 'show' what is very solid defense. He gets real loose at times. A body shot clinic either way this one.

    I’m anticipating this match up more than I did for the Beterbiev and Gvozdyk one. Both are fights which are huge for hardcore fans but casuals have no idea about

    True but hopefully this will elevate both fighters into super stardom because they deserve it.

    I think Nelson was trying to make something out of it, Taylor kinda played along and Prograis shut it down for what it was. Taylor was trying to stare and intimidate, but as Prograis showed with Chisora, he will not be imtimidated by anyone. I agree the is 100% respect between them. Prograis has been fantastic in promotion. Both guys are a credit to the sport and the fac they have this platform is perfect.

    Regis Prograis says he's too smart of a fighter for Josh Taylor: 'My style will give him fits'

    Regis Prograis was discussing how he felt his style could cause Josh Taylor problems when they meet Saturday at the O2 Arena in London for the Muhammad Ali Trophy in the finale of the World Boxing Super Series’ super lightweight tournament.

    As he spoke, a thought hit him and he paused.

    “He’s a good fighter, no doubt about it,” Prograis said. “He’s tall, he’s long, he does have decent power. He can fight on the inside [and he has] good body shots. I just think my style will give him fits, to be honest with you. I think styles make fights and I think my style is really going to give him trouble. I mean, my style is … ”

    He didn’t complete the thought and instead regrouped, because it dawned on him that one of the reasons for his success is his ability to adapt to the occasion.

    He’s a pressure fighter when he needs to be. He’s a boxer when he wants to be. He has a diverse game with a great understanding of how to break down an opponent.

    “Think of it this way: He has 15 fights and I have 24, and if you look at our fights, all 15 of his are the same, and he’s doing the same thing in every one of them, over and over,” Prograis said. “Most of my 24 fights, they all look different. What I did against [Terry] Flanagan was different than what I did against [Juan Jose] Velasco and what I did against [Julius] Indongo was way different than what I did against either of them.

    “I know what he’s going to do, because he does the same thing every time, over and over. I understand why he doesn’t switch things up from time to time, maybe, because it all works for him. But against a smart fighter like me, he’s going to have problems because he doesn’t have any idea what I’m going to do.”

    On paper, the bout is one of the most compelling of the year. Kalle Sauerland, the chief boxing officer of the WBSS, calls the match “the caviar of boxing.”

    “It’s a 50-50 fight between the No. 1 and No. 2 in the division,” Sauerland said. “It’s one of those fights that’s got ‘Fight of the Year’ written all over it. It’s going to be fireworks, that’s for sure.”

    Taylor (15-0, 12 KOs) will be the fifth opponent among Prograis’ past 11 who enters the bout without a loss as a professional, though Taylor is clearly a notch above the rest of the men Prograis (24-0, 20 KOs) has met.

    For as good as he is, Prograis finds himself in a position much like Marvelous Marvin Hagler was nearly 40 years ago when he went to England to challenge Alan Minter for the WBA-WBC middleweight title at Wembley Arena in London on Sept. 27, 1980.

    Hagler was 49-2-2 and hadn’t lost in more than four years, but he’d never held a title and had fought for one only once. He seemed to defeat Vito Antuofermo handily, but the fight was shockingly called a draw.

    Hagler had to go to London to fight Minter to get his title and the recognition as one of the best in the game that those within the sport had long since known.

    Prograis is one of the most compelling personalities in the sport, as well as one of the best fighters, but he’s not a major name yet. He believes he’s on the verge of a breakthrough.



    He is happy to fight in England in front of what he said are among the most astute fans in the world because it will be a coming out party of sorts.

    “After this fight, I think I’ll get the respect worldwide that I deserve,” Prograis said. “They are smart fans and they know how good of a fighter Josh Taylor is. And I’m not going to [lie]: The man is a good fighter. No doubt about it. Now, he ain’t me and he ain’t never met no one like me, I’ll tell you that.

    “When they see how this fight goes, they’ll realize what I can really do, and I think I’m going to come out of this as an international superstar. This is the type of opponent and situation I always dreamed I’d have and now I’m going to take full advantage.”

    On the 26th, I will attend in the All Blacks vs. England Rugby World Cup semi-final. I'm so excited about this battle between Prograis and Taylor, so I hope it won't prevent me from seeing the battle

    Taylor is 13/2 for the stoppage (10 returns 75). He is 12 from 15 KOs (80%), stopped a handful of previously never floored dudes and decked Postol and Baranchyk who have never been stopped and both mixed at world level.

    However, I also think Prograis - 20 from 24 KOs (83%) - has the perfect style to offset a tall conventional upright boxer like Taylor.

    7/4 (10 returns 27.50) either by stoppage.

    Got 50/1 over the counter of the local bookies for Big Dave to spark Del boy in round 1. Don't have an online account and only put £3 down but may look for some specials closer to Saturday. Whatever happens it isn't going to go 12 and there seems to be a few decent odds on stoppages either way. Nice card to have both ends of the sport represented and am looking forward to it if I don't have to work.

    I know you like a punt, but have you ever had one come up trumps?

    I know you weren't asking me, but the easiest bets I recently made good money on was David Avanesyan and Kov by KO.

    With boxing I mostly tend to bet the live dog as the odds are generally sh-t otherwise.

    All the evidence is available with a simple search, yes you'd be very much quids in. I never brag or boast about winners or name the stakes (a monkey to one man is peanuts to another). Nothing worst in this world than "aftertimers." Biggest was Prescott to KO Khan @ 100/1.


    This one I was proud of though, as I called a huge upset to a tee, and certainly came up trumps
