Regis Prograis vs. Danielito Zorrilla: How To Watch & Start Time

05/22/2023 - No comments

Regis Prograis is set to defend his WBC World Super-Lightweight championship against Danielito Zorrilla on Saturday, June 17, at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The event will be broadcasted live worldwide on DAZN.


With a professional record of 28-1 and 24 KOs, Prograis earned his status as a two-time World champion at 140lbs. His victory came after a phenomenal 11-round bout against Jose Zepeda at the prestigious Dignity Health in California this past November.

Hailing from New Orleans, Prograis had previously secured the WBA title at Super-Lightweight. He won the championship against Kiryl Relikh in a sixth-round knockout at the University of Louisiana in April 2019, during the semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series. He then went on to face Josh Taylor in the series final at The O2 in London, in a thrilling match that was narrowly won by the Scotsman.

After facing and defeating opponents such as Juan Heraldez, Ivan Redkach, and Tyrone McKenna, the 34-year-old Prograis reclaimed victory with his win over Zepeda. Now, he’s set to step into the ring for his first home fight since October 2018. His ultimate goal is to take part in the unification fights he has long desired in the latter half of 2023, with his sights set on undisputed championship in 2024.

Zorrilla (17-1 13 KOs), promoted by boxing legend Miguel Cotto, is ready to disrupt those plans. The Puerto Rican has been presented with a golden chance to win his first World title on June 17, stepping in for the injured Liam Paro. Previously, the 29-year-old held the WBO NABO title at 140lbs, marked by a remarkable second-round knockout of Pablo Cesar Cano. His skills were further demonstrated during a fiercely competitive match against highly-touted Californian, Arnold Barbosa Jr. this past July.
