Montana Love Calls for Haney Versus Prograis Winner
On December 9, lightweight fighter Montana “Too Pretty” Love (18-1-1, 9 KO’s) will face number 11 ranked and WBO Global titlist Liam Paro (23-0, 14KO). If successful in the ring, Too Pretty told IFL TV of a desire to face the victor between WBC super lightweight champion Regis Prograis (29-1, 24 KO’s) and former undisputed 135-pound champion Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KO’s).
“After this fight we are looking to get Regis, or Devin. Whoever wins that title! I’m not picking a side, none of that. Its whoever wins that’s who we want, doesn’t matter.”
It’s not a coincidence Love is targeting the winner given the fight with Paro is on the undercard of Prograis versus Haney. During his last at bat, versus Steve Spark, he literally flipped Spark over the top rope and completely out of the ring. This outrageous infraction resulted in him being immediately disqualified from the match.
Too Pretty has had just a hair over a year of inactivity to ponder the ramifications of his actions. If he is truly repentant, it will be interesting to see how his new demeanor will manifest itself in the ring.
“We took the time to learn myself mentally, spiritually, emotionally and learn how to control my anger.”
THE OLE HAIL MARY
While it’s good to hear that the Cleveland, Ohio native is maintaining very high ambitions, a shot versus Haney or Prograis at this juncture appears to be wishful thinking. This is simply because Love probably doesn’t tote the robust profile that a Haney or Prograis would be looking for. To complicate things even further, following his loss and inactivity, Too Pretty fell out of the top fifteen rankings with all four sanctioning bodies. Therefore, his landing a fight that big is a long shot for sure.
If Loves shines like paparazzi camera lights on a red carpet that will be wonderful news. However, Paro is a live dog and is more than capable of winning the fight. Too Pretty can’t afford to looks bad or even worse loss, which could result in him fading out of boxing fans consciousness for good. Guess we’ll just have to watch and find out!
