Okay, Super Lightweight Boxing Bets, look at a fight that has taken a turn for the South in the media. It is a fun turn, which makes the bout a little spicy. Devin Haney and Regis Prograis do not like or respect each other much. They will ultimately settle their differences in the boxing ring on December 9th for Prograis’ WBC belt. The move up to 140 pounds for Haney has brought controversy and attracted an interesting back-and-forth.
So, the two fighters combine for a record of 59-1. However, some believe Prograis has the power and the experience advantage by a ton here. Numbers indicate that Haney is moving up to Prograis’ comfort zone. This is Haney’s first fight again at 140. Prograis has been doing this for a long time and the age difference (ten years) is telling in that way. However, Prograis has lifted his trash-talking game ahead of the fight.
This undercard starts early in the evening (Eastern Time). More than likely, the fight starts just after 11:00 pm ET on the East Coast (8:00 pm PT). Some think that Haney’s boxing skills will keep him out of harm against Prograis and his power. What may surprise people is that the New Orleans native can box with some power, much like Haney. The difference is one is a southpaw, and one fights Orthodox.
Even Prograis’ loss to Josh Taylor was likely closer than the scorecards indicated. Two judges scored for Taylor, while one opted for a 114-114 draw. That draw might have been more accurate. Haney was not quite his finest against Lomachenko, and Prograis versus Zorrilla did not see a knockout.
This bout features two pugilists at the 140-pound weight limit. These two fighters are the same height, but Haney holds a four-inch reach advantage over the WBC Champion. The younger American fighter (24 years old) thinks he can use his reach to land his jab and stick in a flurry of combinations. Now, Super Lightweight Boxing Bets expect this to likely be the case for the decided favorite.
Does anyone think this fight is going the distance? That answer is increasingly likely. Could it happen? A lot of books have this going 11 or 12 rounds. There is a very slight possibility a knockout occurs earlier. Most are ranging anywhere from -250 to -300 for Over 10.5 rounds. The fight going the distance prop now did move down to -160 on Bovada. At the least, it is better than the -325 to -375 numbers seen for Haney on the moneyline.
DAZN PPV and even ESPN+ like the idea of an Orthodox fighter going toe-to-toe with Prograis (Southpaw). Fighting the two-time world champion is another step up for Haney. While the Californian may not knock out the older Prograis, do not be surprised if there is a knockdown or even two. If there is one weakness of the champion holder, he does get flat-footed often.
Needless to say, this bout is far from easy for Haney. Haney expects to make it easy if he uses his boxing skills well. All that gets thrown out the window with one Prograis left. Taking Haney by knockout at +225 on Bovada is a bit too risky early on. Again, that by decision number looks a little safer.
Super Lightweight Boxing Bets with Prograis expects to see some action. There is little doubt that the New Orleans native has been through more hardship than most can imagine. Again, the American fighter probably should be undefeated, but that is a debate for another time. Anyway, Prograis is a decided +270 underdog on Bovada to win on the moneyline this December 9th. He brought his trash-talking game, and then his conditioning coach did too.
Okay, the words ring with some truth here. Haney has been his less-than-usual best lately. Then again, Prograis could not finish off Zorrilla, who came in as an injury replacement. Honestly, two fighters with something to prove makes for an entertaining fight. The accusations over secret losses aside do not hide that these pugilists want to exact some pain in the squared circle. Prograis has more power at this weight, with an 80% knockout rate.
Again, maybe it does not come to a knockout, but Prograis has to slow down Haney with some power shots early. Otherwise, this becomes a one-sided boxing clinic. A +270 moneyline on a small wager is not a bad move.
A quick prop update shows to wait for those Vegas online boxing odds If one is looking for a Prograis knockout. Look to the middle rounds. For Haney, that would come in the championship rounds (11 and 12).
Some asked for projected numbers, and that may be awhile. Be patient.
Super Lightweight Boxing Top Bets give the edge to Haney.
More online betting sites mean more boxing options before this December bout.
