Boxing guests appeared on the Luke Thomas Show recently as Regis Prograis and Deontay Wilder discussed their victories and future.

Prograis is set to face Josh Taylor in the World Boxing Super Series Final. Wilder is facing Luis Ortiz in a rematch after demolishing Dominic Breazeale.

A star at super-lightweight, Prograis said he’ll soon be chasing Terence Crawford at 147 after he’s done with the 140 division.

The Ring Magazine title will be on the line when Prograis and Taylor battle it out for the Ali Trophy.

“After I clean up the division at 140, then I’ll go up to 147” – @RPrograis says he’s chasing Terence Crawford to 147 after he finishes his business at 140lbs #TLTS @lthomasnews

Deontay Wilder also appeared on the show and he said he didn’t regret saying he was going kill Breazeale in the ring,

“Dominic Breazeale threatened my family. He started it all, so it was only right for me to threaten him as well.” – @BronzeBomber doesn’t regret his controversial pre-fight comments about killing Breazeale in the ring #TLTS @lthomasnews @SiriusXMBoxing

Wilder wiped out Breazeale in stunning fashion just minutes into the contest at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ now moves on to face Ortiz for a second time, slated for September in L.A.

A fight with Anthony Joshua has once again been put on hold.

As WBN explained this week, a Joshua v Wilder undisputed unification looks off the menu until at least 2021.

Tyson Fury is also expecting a return with Wilder. February has been earmarked for the second installment.


Premier Boxing Champions contender Adam Kownacki has then been promised a shot back in New York further into 2020.

It all means frustration for the fans, who face a similar situation to Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao when hoping for a Joshua v Wilder collision.

MayPac took years to finally get over the line. By 2015 it was far too late.
