In a clash for the vacant interim WBC super lightweight title, undefeated Regis Prograis (21-0, 18 KOs) impressively destroyed former unified WBA/IBF world champion Julius Indongo (22-2, 11 KOs) in two rounds on Friday night at the Deadwood Mountain Grand in Deadwood, South Dakota.

Prograis scored a knockdown late in round one and finished Indongo with three more knockdowns in round two. Time was 2:54.

Prograis immediately turned his attention to a possible matchup with the winner of next week’s Imam-Ramirez matchup.

“I want the real title now, and I don’t think those two dudes will fight me after tonight,” said Prograis. “Indongo only had one loss to Terrence Crawford, the pound for pound best, and I stopped him a round before Crawford did. I don’t see anybody trying to fight me right now.”
