WATCH: Regis Prograis backed to retain world title with late 11/8 stoppage

Resident boxing expert Rob Tebbutt believes American star Regis Prograis will prove too hot to handle for Puerto Rico’s Danielito Zorrilla in New Orleans this weekend.

Regis Prograis v Danielito Zorrilla Tips

Over in the States, the two-time 140lbs world champion Regis Prograis returns to in-ring action as he defends his WBC super-lightweight title against Danielito Zorrilla.

If you don’t know, Zorrilla is a late replacement for the injured Australian Liam Parro, and I foresee a really difficult night for the Puerto Rican against arguably the number one operator in the 140lb division.

I expect Prograis to get the stoppage in the early hours of Sunday morning, but I don’t envisage him doing so early on in the fight.

I feel it will go a few rounds because Prograis doesn’t like to rush his work, so I’d be looking towards the second half of the fight, between ‘Rounds 7 – 12’, which is priced up at 11/8.

If you fancy him to flex his muscle and get Zorrilla out of there a little earlier, you could look at the 8/5 on offer for him to win by stoppage between ‘Round 5 – 8’, but for me I’d be giving myself a little more breathing room and taking ‘Rounds 7 – 12’ at 11/8.
