Devin Haney to Stage a Title Fight at 140 Against Regis Prograis


For the last several weeks, undisputed lightweight champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (30-0, 15 KO’s) has kept the division in suspense. He created this situation because no one knew if he’d remain at 135 and defend or move up to 140 to face WBC super lightweight champion Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (29-1, 24 KO’s). Now, ESPN has revealed that Haney will move up to face Prograis for his title on October 28.

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE

If given his way, Haney would like to retain his quartet of titles at lightweight so that he has the option to return following his showdown with Prograis. Some may find this surprising due to Team Haney explaining at length on numerous occasions that The Dream has outgrown the division. Therefore, the prevailing feeling was that once the undisputed champion moved up, that would be the end of his reign at 135. Perhaps this will not be the case.

Although, Haney wanting to keep the door open at lightweight should not really be too great a shock. This is because The Dream would be leaving mega-fights with Regular WBA 135-pound champion Gervonta Davis and two-division champion Shakur Stevenson on the table. At the same time, Haney has already secured the Prograis fight and could easily make another huge super lightweight prizefight with the tremendously popular Ryan Garcia.

Yet, to keep from putting the cart before the horse, let’s first see what happens when Haney and Prograis mix it up in the ring. Thankfully, 3Kings Boxing will be here to report the news every step of the way.
