Team Garcia Entertaining Regis Prograis Fight If No Tank Davis Fight
WBC junior welterweight champion Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (28-1, 24KO) could get his wish of wanting to fight top contender Ryan “King Ry” Garcia (23-0, 19KO), provided the fight with multi-divisional champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (28-0, 26KO) falls apart.
The boxing community is shaking their heads out of frustration as the drama continues with finalizing a deal for the Davis – Garcia showdown. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya recently expressed the main issue is having DAZN take over broadcasting rights for the rematch should Garcia win. President of Showtime Sports Stephen Espinoza took that as a positive update on the fight coming along. Furthermore, he added that the one sticking point of the Golden Boy CEO is not insurmountable.
A NEW OPTION IS BEING CONSIDERED
Here is where Rougarou comes into the picture. He took to social media and offered to fill in if things don’t work out.
According to ESPN, Golden Boy is lining up a backup plan. Team Garcia is inquiring if the WBC champion can step in to fight on April 15. The fight would be for Prograis’ WBC title, and fans would embrace this as an acceptable replacement.
These two have a history that boxing fans have seen play out live on social media. Both men have issued threats of stopping the other.
This fight, on a financial scale, would not add up remotely close to a Tank fight, but it’s a good substitute. Nevertheless, the boxing community is hoping things get worked out. The constant disappointments of failed big fights in men’s boxing is growing long in the tooth.
