The countdown to the epic clash between Devin Haney and Regis Prograis has begun. The wheels are turning, and the dates are set in stone – there is no backing down anymore. Devin ‘The Dream’ Haney aims to become a two-division champion by climbing to 140 lbs and defeating Prograis. Meanwhile, Prograis has the potential to cause an upset, becoming one of the top names in boxing.

This isn’t the first time either fighter is making the headlines. Previously, the 29-0 boxer accused Haney of scrubbing early career losses from his record. However, today, the Houston native made a bold claim on X (formerly Twitter). Turning to the platform, Prograis promised to punish Haney in their upcoming fight on December 9th at the Chase Centre in San Francisco.

With just a month left in their fight, Prograis decided to express his intentions for the 9th December fight against Haney. “1 month away. I’m gonna punish this boy,” Prograis wrote in his tweet directed at Haney. It’s worth mentioning that Prograis is considered the underdog in the upcoming clash because of Haney’s notoriety and ability to win high-profile fights. 

While Haney stands undefeated in the face of the upcoming bout, Prograis is also on a five-match winning streak, with a prior defeat coming at the hands of Josh Taylor. However, that shouldn’t diminish Prograis’ potential to pull off an upset. What’s more, Shakur Stevenson is hopeful Regis would be able to do that.

Shakur Stevenson on Haney vs. Prograis 

Before the fight between Haney and Prograis was confirmed to the world, Haney was involved in a Twitter feud with Shakur. The rivals were even in the talks to face each other, but it quickly fell apart when Haney proposed an unfair purse split to Shakur. It also gave rise to the widespread opinion that Haney is looking for easier fights to maintain his undefeated record.

While the validity of the opinion is still up for grabs, Shakur is hoping Ragis can tarnish Haney’s pristine record. According to a tweet from ESPN Ringside, ‘Sugar’ Stevenson is hoping Prograis can win the fight. “Hopefully, Regis can do something to get the victory,” said Shakur. He went on to speculate that Haney could beat Regis, but Haney has had trouble defeating southpaw fighters. “Maybe he do beat Regis, but he do have a little trouble with southpaws it look like,” ‘Sugar’ said. 

With the much-anticipated fight inching closer every day, Prograis seems confident about his chances of winning the fight. However, only time can tell what happens when the two pugilists step on the canvas on 9th December.
