Last night, in his fifth contest of 2014, Regis “Rougarou” Prograis, of Houston, TX, took on the undefeated Jeff Humphries in a six-round junior welterweight contest held at Evangeline Downs Casino, in Opelousas, LA. Normally the aggressor, the 25-year-old Prograis played the role of counter-puncher as Humphries burst out of his corner throwing bombs. Easily evading Humphries’ offense with adept defensive maneuvers, Prograis returned fire with a four-punch combination to the body and head to knock his foe out cold inside the first minute of round one. Scoring his sixth knockout in a row, Prograis improved to 12-0 (10 KOs).
