Regis Prograis put on a class performance in DAZN’s main event, dominating Terry Flangan over 12 rounds to take a unanimous decision in the World Boxing Super Series quarterfinals. At the end of the the full 12 rounds judges turned in official scorecards of 119-108, 118-109, and 117-110. BLH scored the fight 119-108 in favor of Prograis.

Prograis came out and fought in a very calm and deliberate fashion. He never overextended himself, never got excited whenever he hurt Flanagan, and really just went to work and relied on his sharp punching and defense.

By the middle rounds Prograis was landing his jab at will and keeping Flanagan on the defensive. Flanagan tried to mount his attacks but has to be careful because he was consistently met with sharp counters from Prograis. In the 8th round it seemed like the end was upon us when Prograis landed a big straight left hand that put Flangan down.

Flanagan would get up and Prograis would try to blitz him, but Flanagan’s experience and heart saw him survive the round. Unfortunately Flanagan couldn’t put together enough consistent offense to win rounds, and would therefore get wiped out on the scorecards.

With the win Prograis (23-0, 19 KOs) secures his spot in the semifinal round of the WBSS tournament as its #1 seed. Prograis then said in the post-fight interview that he doesn’t care who he faces next because he’s going to win the whole tournament so expects to beat everybody anyway.
