What Some Might Call Desire: Regis Prograis-Josh Taylor Preview


When Josh Taylor and Regis "Rougarou" Prograis signed contracts in 2018 binding them to the World Boxing Super Series, they assured themselves of one thing: danger. The wallflowers, morning glories, and small dreamers of contemporary boxing—for whom the off-line world might as well be Panem or Arrakis—can, for one night at least, vanish, like a Snapchat post. Taylor and Prograis, two of the best junior-welterweights in the world, square off in the finals of the WBSS tournament tomorrow evening at the O2 Arena in London, England. Also at stake are a panoply of Alphabet Soup titles and potential bragging rights as the recognized big wheel of their division.
