After enjoying an unsatisfactory technical decision win over Ivan Redkach last weekend, Regis Prograis has set his sights on his next target.
The New Orleans southpaw had to make do with an early scorecard victory over Redkach following an accidental low blow on the Ukrainian, but he wasted no time calling out Adrien Broner in the post-fight press conference.
Broner, who defeated Jovanie Santiago in February to remove two years of ring rust, has not yet confirmed his next move, but a fight with Prograis would likely tempt him due to his desire to take on big challenges. Prograis was stern when making the challenge shortly after his recent victory.
“We gonna talk to management and, you know, Triller and hopefully me and Adrien can make a super fight right here on Triller,” said Prograis. “I think that could be a potential next, possible next for me and him. So Adrien Broner, he always supported me, we always say we gonna f— each other up — which I think I'll beat his a— but at the same time it’s good to get support from him.”
Prograis added, "I think me and Adrien Broner can make a super fight. I really think so. If me and him can meet right back on Triller, he has a huge name, and I kinda have a name, and I’m an explosive fighter, and we both talk a lot of shit. I’ll kick his a— but I think that’s a huge fight, so we’ll see. We’ll see what’s gonna happen next.”
With the 140lbs division eagerly anticipating an official ruler when Josh Taylor and Jose Ramirez clash in an undisputed title bout on May 22 with the victor of a potential clash between Prograis and Broner would be an ideal position to challenge the winner of that contest.
