HOUSTON (Feb. 22, 2018) – Undefeated 140-pound contender Regis Prograis

Regis” dedicated to his hometown of New Orleans. The full video can be

Filmed entirely on the streets of New Orleans, the compelling visuals are
Regis’ way of introducing himself to the world on the eve of his biggest
fight.

On Friday, March 9, Prograis will face former unified world champion Julius
Indongo
(22-1-0, 11 KOs) for the vacant Interim WBC Super Lightweight World
Championship in the 12-round main event of SHOWTIME BOXING: SPECIAL EDITION
live on SHOWTIME at 10 p.m. ET/PT from Deadwood Mountain Grand, in
Deadwood, South Dakota. Prograis is also determined to make history, as the
last boxing champion to come from New Orleans was Willie Pastrano, who held
the light heavyweight title from 1963 until 1965.

“Some people have seen me fight before, but for many I wanted to show them
what’s important to me and what made me the fighter that I am,” said
Prograis. “I wanted the people of New Orleans to know how much they mean to
me and hopefully motivate others that anything truly is possible in life.”

“Regis is immensely proud of his New Orleans roots and is showing his love
for the city with his ‘Dear World’ campaign,” said Lou DiBella, President
of DiBella Entertainment. “With a victory on March 9, he will move one step
closer to becoming New Orleans’ first boxing champion in more than 50
years. He and his alter ego, the Rougarou, are products of the rich
culture, history, diversity and resiliency that are New Orleans. Regis
dreams bigger than a world title; he wants to become a champion of the
people, inspiring young people in his beloved NOLA and beyond.”

This Saturday night, February 24, Prograis will leave his training camp in
Houston, Texas, for a special New Orleans Fan Fest (6:00pm-9:00pm) at the
New Orleans Boxing Club,2836 Conti Street, New Orleans, Louisiana, 70119
.
Fans and media are welcome to watch Prograis train up-close in what
promises to be a festive atmosphere where numerous other professional
athletes and celebrities are expected to attend.
