Regis Prograis Reveals Exchange of Words During a Face to Face With Terence Crawford at an Event

Hardcore boxing lovers are well acquainted with Terence Crawford and Regis Prograis’ prolonged rivalry. The rift between the two dates back to the time when Crawford was the super-lightweight king back around 2017. A fight between these two couldn’t get finished back then, and Crawford later moved ahead to compete in the welterweight landscape.

Since then, the two seem to have unfinished business and they recently chatted over the same at an event. Prograis was in a conversation with Es News. Here, he opened up on the exchange he had with the WBO welterweight champ.

He said, “We just talk s**t.”

“We said the same thing we’ve been saying for years. He said he’ll f**k me up, I said I’ll f**k him up,” added Prograis.

Prograis, a former WBA super-lightweight champ, is one of the elite trash talkers who enjoys going after his opponents in every way possible. Until now, the southpaw went against many biggies of the sport and his super-lightweight division. That said, Terence Crawford isn’t new to his list and the boxing community enjoys the banter Prograis has with ‘Bud’.

For now, Prograis doesn’t have a fight aligned with any opponent. In his last fight, he beat Ivan Redkach with a T/KO to advance himself in the queue for a title shot.

However, seeing his growing rivalry with ‘Bud’, a lot of fans are excited to see Prograis go up against the welterweight elite.

Prograis, for a huge chunk of his career, fought in the super-lightweight frame only.

That said, his hunger to reclaim his throne is bigger than any other fight/opponent. Citing that, it’s clear that a fight between the two men isn’t on the cards so soon. However, their light banters and trash talks are enough to allure boxing enthusiasts.
