The WBC interim light welterweight title will be on the line in New Orleans as American and New Orleans fighter Regis Prograis will look to defend his crown in front of his home fans. He will be taking on Argentine Juan Jose Velasco. This boxing match is between two very skilled fighters meaning it should be a great spectacle.
Juan Jose enters this fight with 20 wins and no losses. The unbeaten South American is known as the pitbull in his own country due to his aggressive style. This is only the second time that Juan Jose Velasco is fighting in the United States and although this is not ideal, he has won his previous fight. Velasco is a very good fighter and the Argentinians are confident that he can bring home the belt.

On the other side of the ring, Regis Prograis is hoping that he can retain his belt at home. The American is also undefeated having won all of his 21 fights. This is a big challenge for Regis Prograis since he is up against one of the best South American fighters in this weight category. Winning this fight will give Regis Prograis an opportunity to challenge for more titles and I think the American will be desperate to win.
This should be a very close fight. Both fighters are top level and either fighter could win. That being said, I am going to pick Juan Jose Velasco to win. The Argentinian looks like he is in better form and his aggressive nature could break down Regis Prograis. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price to bet on Juan Jose Velasco to win so that is the best option for wagering in this fight.
