Regis Prograis Can’t See Tyrone McKenna Being on his Level

In his next in-ring tour of duty, super lightweight boxer Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (26-1, 22 KO’s) will face the challenge of Tyrone “The Mighty Celt” McKenna (22-2-1, 6 KO’s). They will collide in the belly of the Duty Free Tennis Station located in Dubai. The bout will mark his first of the year and third outing since losing his only professional contest to undisputed super lightweight champion Josh Taylor back on October 26, 2019.

In his two previous dustups, Prograis stopped Ivan Redkach and Juan Heraldez. Given his way, Rougarou would love the chance to stop McKenna. Yet, this is not something that he is willing to get reckless to accomplish. In fact, for his money, Prograis doesn’t feel like he and the Mighty Celt are even remotely in the same league as he explained to iFL TV in a recent interview.

“I am just going to go out there and do me! Just like I said in the fighters meeting, they said, ‘am I a level above him?’ I feel like nah, I am not a level. I’m about five levels above him! But even saying that, I am taking this 100% serious because I want to be a champion again.”


Yet as he said himself, Prograis is completely focused on becoming a world champion once again. So, for him, McKenna is just one more hurdle to hop on that grander journey.

“That’s my main thing, to be a champion again. I could have went up and got some big money fights and stuff and everybody told me to go up to 47 and do this, do that. I’m like, ‘nah, I want to be a champion again’. It’s something personally that I want and I bet on myself and now I am in this situation. Of course, I respect Tyrone McKenna but I just feel like I am going to run him over!”


Luckily for the ambitious Prograis, technically he is very close to getting the title shot he is searching for.

“I know that I am highly ranked in probably all of them, but they just named this is for the WBC final eliminator.”

“So that means I fight for the title again in the next fight, no matter who it’s against!”
