Prograis will be fighting in his hometown for the first time since October of 2018 when he beat Terry Flanagan. “The last time I fought in New Orleans it was nice, but this is the Smoothie King Center, it’s on a different level, I’m ecstatic,” said Prograis to the media, “You can’t soak up the moment too much because I still have to go out there and fight, I still need to do that, but it’s really a dream come true because coming up, when I first started boxing, I wanted to fight there – it was a two-part dream, fight at the Smoothie King Center and then at the Superdome, so this is the first big step towards doing something huge in my city.”
Prograis realizes that as a champion, he has a target on his back. “As the champion, you must be even hungrier as those contenders are coming for you and that they want what you got.” Prograis said to the media, “There are wolves behind me all day long, so my mindset has to be that there’s fighters all over the world that are coming for me and I need to outwork them, out train them, be hungrier than them – I have to be on my A-game every day.”
