The Undisputed Lightweight champion Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) is stepping up a division. He'll challenge WBC super lightweight champion Regis Prograis (29-1, 24 KOs).

The fight will air on DAZN, on 9th December, and take place at the Chase Center, San Francisco, USA.

Do you see this as a competitive fight or a foregone conclusion?

Should be a good one. Prograis at his best wins this. Question is will we get his best. If so, bad news for Haney. Prograis was diminished in his last fight; some said perhaps spooked/distracted fighting in his backyard but he'd fought there before. May not seem so but he is 34 years old.

Yes Haney's the one moving up but he's a big dude. These two are even in height and Haney's the longer. Haney's still only 24 but well into his prime. He's shown he can handle elite southpaws - Loma and JoJo Diaz. Prograis may have been at his best during his WBSS run until he ran into Taylor. Even if he's able to summon some of that, Haney can prevent him from reaching his best.

Haney's won his last seven fights by a UD12. So...Haney by a UD12.

This should be a real cracker.

 

I think Regis has the better defense, but he's surely slowing down with age.  

No predictions from me, other than a high level of action and skill.   

Big fan of both of these guys.  I have to root for Haney, though.  Changing of the guard and all that .....

- - Ring stinkers picked Heinie 19-3.

35 yr old Linares who was KOed 6x in his career had Heinie out on his feet at the end of a round with one punch. Had he a minute left in the round, Haney's toast.

Regis a true pro has an 83% KO ratio alloyed with a lot of animosity over a kid who can't punch but knows how to stink a decision.

Good news is Haney won't know what hit him until they get him to his corner.

Well, the ref could well work on Prograis to keep him off Haney, so we shall see...

--- Haney surprised me with his new found man strength. We'll have to see what he does next.

Wants to be the new big mouth Ali, but it took a long time for Ali to become a big draw save the Joe Frazier 1 blip where he got beat up.

I'm really looking forward to this one.

 

Wallin hasn't quite fulfilled the promise he once showed,  but he's still really talented.  With the right camp,  and the right mental attitude, this could be a huge upset.   A very exciting matchup.

With those short arms of his, Wallin's going to need to get inside on a still-dangerous AJ,  but I think Wallin (at his best) has excellent defense.    He'll need to show an improved jab, though, which has always been his main weakness.

    

Well,  I have a feeling he's gonna' let me down, but hope spring eternal......
