Regis Prograis (born January 24, 1989) is an American professional boxer. He held the WBA super lightweight title from April 2019 until October 2019 and previously held the WBC interim super lightweight title in 2018. As of November 2019, he is ranked as the world's third best active light welterweight by The Ring magazine, Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and BoxRec. Prograis currently has an 83.3% knockout-to-win ratio.
Of Louisiana Creole descent and originally hailing from New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina forced him to relocate to Houston, Texas in 2005. Once in Houston, Prograis began training at Savannah Boxing Club alongside Evander Holyfield which was a key factor in motivating him to take boxing seriously. He would go on to build a remarkable 87-7 amateur record. As an amateur, Prograis was ranked #4 in the United States, the 2009 Ringside World Champion, 2010 HORN National Champion, won regional Golden Gloves, and competed in the 2012 Olympic Trials before turning pro in 2012.
Since turning pro, Prograis has become a star on ShowBox, a Showtime production with 4 impressive victories. Prograis also fought at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on the undercard of the Keith Thurman vs. Shawn Porter fight, which was the first primetime boxing event televised on CBS in over 40 years. In 2015, he was recognized by ESPN as a Prospect of the Year candidate. USA Today and Yahoo Sports has recognized Prograis as a legitimate world title contender. Regis is represented by boxing promoter Lou DiBella.
