Regis Prograis open to Jose Ramirez, Terence Crawford at 147 in 2019
The WBC interim champion and World Boxing Super Series semi-finalist Regis Prograis have discussed a potential increase in weight.
Prograis, who recently defeated Terry Flanagan to progress to a world title fight with Kiryl Relikh, is open to a future fight with Terence Crawford.
Before that, Prograis wants to take care of business in the WBSS. Then move on to a possible unification with WBC ruler Jose Ramirez.
Speaking from At the Fights with Cooney and the Commish, Prograis asked if he’d fight Crawford at a catchweight.
“I think so. Not even a catchweight; I’d go up to 147. After this tournament, if that fight is out there. Terence and I are really cool, but business is business.
“I’ve been calling out Terence Crawford for the longest. Terence Crawford is a fight I always wanted.
“I want to fight the best people. In my eyes, Terence Crawford is one of the best P4P on the planet.
“I feel like I could be on that list if I fight with Terence Crawford and beat someone like Crawford.
“I think I still have some unfinished business with Jose Ramirez, too, after the tournament is over if he’s still around.”
The WBSS is set to run until next summer, with the semis in January and February.
A win over Relikh would see Prograis capture the WBA strap. ‘Rougarou’ would then fight in a unification finale for the Ali Trophy against Josh Taylor or Ivan Baranchyk.
