Haney winning by knocking out Prograis seems to be a long shot in this scenario even though the unified world champion has scored 15 knockouts so far in his career. Recognized as the world’s best active lightweight by multiple outlets, he last notched a stoppage win back in 2019 with a fourth-round victory over Zaur Abdullaev. This bout was also for the vacant WBC interim lightweight title.
Haney’s last seven fights have all been unanimous decision victories, with some more empathic than others. With that in mind, it would appear the champion will once again look to triumph on the judge’s scorecards in a sound manner. Moreover, since he is fighting an opponent that is a touch larger, perhaps this will be more of a strategic bout than aiming for the knockout.
Known as “Rougarou,” which is Louisiana French for “werewolf,” Prograis has accrued a sensational 24 knockout wins in his career. His last knockout victory occurred back in November 2022 in a bout against Jose Zepeda. This contest was for the WBC light welterweight title. Prior to that, he had strung together four consecutive KO/TKO wins after losing to Josh Taylor in a title fight back in October 2019.
Of the different predicted outcomes, this one has the least likelihood of occurring per various outlets. However, you should not write this scenario off completely as Prograis’ latest bout was a split-decision win against Danielito Zorrilla in June of this year. Indeed, facing a fighter of Haney’s caliber, it is fair to assume that this bout could go the distance.
Prediction: A sensational bout for the month of the year, take Haney to win via decision and keep his unbeaten streak intact.
