Devin Haney vs. Regis Prograis: Who Has the Edge at Sportsbooks?

This article originally appeared at FanDuel Research.

Get set for Saturday’s super lightweight action with the latest Haney vs. Prograis odds and betting insights from FanDuel Research.

Since boxing Hall of Famer Andre Ward retired, it is not often that a prize fight takes us to the Bay Area. However, come Saturday night, that’s exactly what we’ll have — prepare for it to be hyphy.

Taking place at San Francisco’s Chase Center (home of the Golden State Warriors), former undisputed champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (30-0, 15 KO) will jump up one division to challenge Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (29-1, 24 KO) for the WBC world super lightweight strap. Can Haney steal new hardware while maintaining his perfect record?

Haney-Prograis will serve as the main event on a seven-bout fight card that also features a women’s title match. This will be Haney’s second time in the ring this year while Prograis has also fought once previously in 2023.

Before the two Americans exchange blows in the “City by the Bay,” let’s see how they match up. For all betting information, how to watch, fighter history, and full card details, read below:

Fighter History

Devin Haney

As one of the craftiest fighters in the sport, Devin Haney — having just turned 25 years old — has dazzled his way to an undefeated 30-0 professional record. He spent the past year (June 2022 – August 2023) as the undisputed lightweight champion. Haney regularly features masterful ring skills and generalship, utilizing his lengthy reach of 71 inches.

Currently, “The Dream” finds himself as the No. 7 pound-for-pound fighter on multiple respected lists, such as ESPN and The RingAfter proving to be top dog amongst a hyper-talented lightweight circuit, Haney will now beef up to junior welterweight. Still, for his upcoming bout, he and Prograis both stand at 5-foot-8.

Haney’s most recent spat came over the summer in his hometown of Vegas. Near the end of last May, he shared the ring with Vasiliy Lomachenko for a dozen competitive rounds. In a gritty effort, Haney appeared to be losing after a surge from Loma midway through, but “The Dream” buckled down in deep water, attacking his opponent’s body to control tempo. By fight’s end, Haney was — somewhat controversially — declared winner by unanimous decision.

Immediately prior to the scrap with Loma, Haney showcased back-to-back wins over George Kambosos on foreign soil. Fast-forward to now, and Haney will be fighting back in San Francisco where he was born. This will be his first bout in California since 2019.

If there’s a gripe against Haney’s skillset, it can be associated with his ability as a finisher, yielding a 50% KO rate. For a fighter as notable as him, you might imagine that number to be higher. Considering that, and the fact that Haney is moving up in weight, it makes sense that the bookmakers are adamant on this bout with Prograis going the distance (-450 odds at FanDuel Sportsbook).

Regis Prograis

At the age of 34, Regis Prograis — the WBC super lightweight champ — is absolutely not to be slept on. For you baseball fans and bettors, Prograis is what you would call a “power lefty.” The southpaw from New Orleans showcases a brilliant 29-1 pro record, but what’s paramountly impressive is Prograis’ 82.8% knockout rate.

Nicknamed “Rougarou” (Creole for werewolf), Prograis’ boxing career began in Houston. He became a professional back in 2012, proceeding to win 24 of his bouts by stoppage since then (including four of his past five fights). In his most recent match (first title defense), he earned a split-decision victory over Danielito Zorrilla. On that night in NOLA, Prograis scored a third-round knockdown.

“Rougarou” first won his WBC strap in a vacant match versus Jose Zepeda. Back in November 2022, the two lefties fought fiercely until a wobbling Prograis landed a massive left on Zepeda’s chin, earning an 11th-round knockout in front of the Los Angeles crowd.

Of course, Prograis does have one blemish on his record. In 2019, he and Josh Taylor produced a meeting of unbeaten fighters in London. Despite entering as a slight favorite, “Rougarou” lost a majority decision to Taylor; the Scotsman won 117-112 and 115-113 on the cards in his favor.

At FanDuel Sportsbook, the method of victory category has Prograis as a more likely candidate to win this Saturday by KO/TKO (+630 odds) compared to by points/decision (+700). Weirdly enough, a draw here is priced shorter (+1280) than I have seen in most fights (whereas ties typically show +1600 odds or longer), but I’d still consider that to be a dart.
