Regis Prograis vs Josh Taylor: Fighters make weight, set for unification

Prograis made weight on his second attempt, stripping down nude.

We’re officially good to go for tomorrow junior welterweight title unification between Regis Prograis and Josh Taylor. All the fighters from the card, which will be held at London’s O2 Arena, hit the scales today.

For the main event Prograis (24-0, 20 KOs) hit the scale and there was an intense stare by the officials as they determined his official weight. Prograis would ultimately be determined to be 1oz over the 140lb limit, so then got into his birthday suit for another attempt where he hit 140 on the button.

Josh Taylor (15-0, 12 KOs) also took to the scale and weighed-in just under the full 140lb limit, looking primed and ready to fight.

The two fighters then got pretty lively for their last face-to-face before they get to finally start throwing punches.

The energy seems like it’s finally hit a boiling point, so tomorrow’s actions should prove to be explosive.
