REGIS PROGRAIS dominated Terry Flanagan to win their World Boxing Super Series quarter-final at the Lake Front Arena in New Orleans on Saturday.

Terry Flanagan struggled to pin down the talented New Orleans light-welterweight. Prograis moved well and stymied the Briton’s work with accurate jabs and deft footwork. Against a fellow southpaw, Regis brought in strong one-twos and in the second half of the fight looked ever more assured as he edged on to the front foot to drive Flanagan back.

In the eighth round Prograis put Flanagan down with a long left over the top. Regis piled on to exert pressure, hammering punches home. He landed a vicious three-punch combination to the head and almost knocked Flanagan off his feet. He fell into the ropes but remained in trouble. Prograis landed a lovely left uppercut, winging in punches at will But Flanagan managed to tough it out.
