Prograis knows that the fight against the Mexican will not be easy, as Zepeda has fought great fights in the two previous world championship opportunities he had, but luck has not been on his side lately.
Born in New Orleans, the 33-year-old Rougarou became an interim WBC super lightweight champion in 2018 when he defeated Julius Indongo. He retained the crown three times (against Juan José Velasco, Terry Flanagan, Kiryl Relikh) and lost it to England’s Josh Taylor the following year, in what turned out to be the only defeat of his career so far.
“I was champion three years ago and I stayed at 140 pounds to fulfill my goal of becoming a two-time world champion in this division. I have waited a long time for this opportunity.”Regis Prograis
The left handed comes into this duel with three consecutive victories, the last one of them in March of this year, against British Tyrone McKenna.

Jose Zepeda is a boxer of vast experience, as is his next opponent. Also a lefty, he will be a local in California. He has two unsuccessful attempts to win the world title. In 2015, when he was still undefeated, and a very interesting prospect, he lost to Britain’s Terry Flanagan for the WBO lightweight belt.
Four years later, he was unable to defeat American Jose Ramirez, who defeated him by a majority decision for the WBC super lightweight crown. Now he is betting on the saying “third time’s the charm”.
They are two experienced fighters with similar characteristics: lef handed and knockout experts. The advantage in Prograis’ favor has to do with his championship record: he knows what it means to hold a world belt. And that is a key psychologically, so at JefeBet believe he will be victorious over Zepeda.
Prediction: Regis Prograis win on points.
