The management of the World Boxing Super Series has announced that the second-quarter quarter-final Mohammed Ali Trophy at the Welterweight Championship between Regis Prograis vs Terry Flanagan will take place on October 27 at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 29-year-old Regis Prograis is considered one of the favorites of the tournament, as he recently scored a fantastic shape and constantly adds from fight to fight. It cannot be said that the last performance of the American Puncher was perfect, but “Rougarou” won ahead of Argentinean Juan José Velasco, although he clearly underestimated his opponent.

Regis Prograis briefly commented on the appointment of the date and location of the fight with Terry Flanagan, expressing his admiration for the fact that the WBSS quarterfinal will take place in New Orleans.

“I am very happy to fight again at home in New Orleans. I know perfectly well what to expect from the local public. Fans of boxing from New Orleans are my biggest fans. It will be a special evening,” said Progre.

Terry Flanagan, in turn, lost the last match to American Maurice Hooker and failed to win the vacant WBO title at 140 pounds, where the Briton recently moved out of light weight.
