12 rounds, for the WBA and WBC super lightweight titles
Regis Prograis is fighting Kyril Relikh for the WBA and WBC super lightweight titles. It is also the semifinal in the World Boxing Super Series. Relikh is a tough rugged fighter with good punching power. His best wins has come against Rances Barthelemy and Eduard troyanovsky in close fights that went the distance. He is improved from the fighter he was a few years ago when he was soundly beaten by Ricky Burns. Regis Prograis presents a style he has not seen before. He is a southpaw with good balance and head movement and lets not forget his biggest asset: his left hand. Prograis has tremendous elite power in his left hand. Even his jab is heavy enough to get opponents out of balance. His last 4 opponents have a combined record of 96 wins with only 2 losses. Everything Relikh does good, Prograis does even better. There is no area where you can really say that Relikh will have an advantage and the fight is taking place in Louisiana where Prograis comes from. Relikh will be tricky at times but the agression, skill and power of Prograis will come through. The pick is Regis Prograis to win and advance to the WBSS finals.
