WEIGH-IN RESULTS FOR SATURDAY’S BROADWAY BOXING CARD
In the main event, Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (18-0, 15 KOs) will defend his NABF junior welterweight title for the first time since he defeated Luis Eduardo Flores in June of last year to win the strap. Prograis faces tough-as-nails Colombian southpaw Wilfrido Buelvas (18-6, 12 KOs) in a 10-round bout. Prograis, who trains in Houston with coach Bobby Benton, looks to keep the momentum that he gained over three spectacular, high profile wins, beginning with the trouncing of previously undefeated Abel Ramos (17-2-2, 12 KOs), on Showtime in December 2015. Prograis, who began his amateur boxing career at 17 years old, amassed 100 amateur wins before making his pro debut in 2012.
Houston’s Cedric Agnew (28-2, 14 KOs) will end a 17-month layoff to square off in an eight-round bout at cruiserweight against Martin Verdin (21-19-2, 11 KOs), of Dulac, LA. Agnew, who is also trained by Bobby Benton, last fought in August 2015, earning a unanimous decision over St. Louis’ Kevin Engel. The former WBC USNBC and USBA titlist was widely regarded as one of the most avoided light heavyweights and he intends to climb back up the rankings as he seeks out the top fighters at 175 pounds. Verdin is a veteran who has faced a diverse field of opponents and, in his last outing, bested Mississippi’s Billy Cunningham via six-round unanimous decision.
Baton Rouge’s Eric Walker (14-0, 7 KOs) will be making his DiBella Entertainment debut in an eight-round contest at middleweight against Zack Kuhn (9-3-1, 4 KOs), of Charleston, WV. It was announced earlier this week that Walker, who is an attraction across the South, signed with DiBella Entertainment after promoter Lou DiBella met the 33-year-old father of two at the WBC Convention in Miami. Walker garnered the attention of media and fans after handing prospect Chris Pearson his first defeat in December 2015. Walker followed that up by seizing the WBC Continental Americas junior middleweight title last June.
“Cracking” Craig Callaghan (15-1, 6 KOs) takes on fellow Houston fighter and late replacement Starr Johnson (5-26-1, 4 KOs) in an eight-round junior middleweight rematch. Callaghan is on an eight-fight winning streak following his only defeat in November 2014.
Rounding out the card, Houston’s Pablo Cruz (13-1, 5 KOs) faces Markale Duncan (3-3), of Forrest Hill, TX, over six rounds in the junior lightweight division. Junior welterweight Cody Richard (18-2-1, 9 KOs), of Orange, TX, faces Gulfport’s Bobby Hill (5-30-1, 1 KO) in a six-round bout. Tampa, FL, fighter Mike Bissett (12-9, 8 KOs) faces off at cruiserweight with Louisiana’s Jimmy Owensby (4-5, 2 KOs) over six rounds, and Tuscaloosa-based cruiserweight Dandre “Deon” Nicholson (1-0, 1 KO) takes on Clarksville’s Tirik Johnson (0-2) in a four-rounder. Meridian, Mississippi’s Charles Dale (5-1, 2 KOs) competes in a four-round heavyweight bout against Adrian Miles (0-1), of Birmingham, AL.
