Regis Prograis thinks that Mario Barrios is on some “bitch shit”


Former super lightweight world champion Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (26-1, KO’s) is searching for an opponent. Prograis has made it no secret that he would love to lock horns with Regular WBA world lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis. Tank has an upcoming June 26 showdown with Regular WBA super lightweight champion Mario “El Azteca” Barrios (26-0, 17 KO’s).

Given that Prograis has eyes for the Davis fight, it would only seem logical that’s why he wants Tank to win. In part that is true, but at the end of the day the New Orleans native wants to see Barrios done greasy because he has no fundamental respect for him. This distaste has its roots in some behind the scenes dealings dating back to late 2020.

I THINK YOU YELLOW!

In the aftermath of his October 31 bout with Juan Heraldez, Rougarou was promised a shot at Barrios and his belt. Unfortunately for Prograis, when it came time to pen the dustup, he was told that El Azteca was moving up to welterweight. Given the sour news, he was left no other alternative but to look for another fight elsewhere. So naturally Prograis was upset to hear about the Davis versus Barrios bout being staged at super lightweight.

“Kinda the whole Mario Barrios shit, it pissed me off. There are people that don’t know, after I fought for the Halloween night, I was promised Mario Barrios right next for that belt. And then they told me that Mario Barrios was going to 147. ‘Absolutely he can’t make 140!’ Now he about to fight Tank. So for me it was like some bitch shit, so I hope Tank beat him!”

Despite his open rancor, Prograis still acknowledged that Barrios is a dangerous foe.

“But at the same time I think that it’s still going to be a tough fight because of the size difference. Barrios, he doesn’t have too much skill. I don’t think his skill-wise is up there. But he is big, he is tall and he is a world 140-pound fighter. So I think it’ll be a tough fight, but I still got to go with Tank.”

Obviously when Davis and Barrios go head-to-head, Prograis will be watching with invested interest. Yet, luckily for the fans though, no matter who comes out on top the fight should be all-action while it lasts!
