NEW ORLEANS. (June 1, 2018) — Regis Prograis returned home Wednesday for a homecoming press conference at The Original French Market Restaurant & Bar to promote his WBC super lightweight diamond belt title defense against fellow unbeaten Juan Jose Velasco, July 14 at the Lakefront Arena on the campus of the University of New Orleans.Prograis (21-0, 18 KOs) was born in New Orleans, moving to Houston after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city. Now, he’s back for the first time as a professional and ready to put on a show for his home fans against Velasco (20-0, 12 KOs), a Buenos Aires, Argentina, native who has won four of his last five bouts via knockout.

It was a star-studded afternoon featuring New Orleans dignitaries, including the city’s mayor, LaToya Cantrell.

This is what Prograis and his promoter, Lou Dibella, had to say.

Prograis

“Boxing is not as big in New Orleans because the kids don’t see it. I want to be the person that they see, that they know they have a champion in New Orleans. Boxing is big right now in New York and Las Vegas, but I’m telling you that I’m going to change it. It’s going to boost the economy and everybody in the world will come back to New Orleans. Ali fought here, Duran fought here, Sugar Ray Leonard fought here and I’m going to bring it back. I’d like to thank everybody for coming. One of the main things you can do if you want to bring big time boxing back to New Orleans is come to the fight on July 14. That’s all you have to do, come to the fight.”

“Every time I think of New Orleans, I think of its culture and the people. There is a such a strong culture in New Orleans and our fans are so loyal. The Saints can lose every game,  and we’re still going to be in the Superdome every weekend. I just want to inspire the kids.”

DiBella

“Since I signed Regis, he’s wanted to fight here. This was the right moment. Regis wants to be a great champion. Regis wants to be a unified champion. Regis wants to be a Hall of Fame fighter. He wants all those things. He also wants to be a leader in New Orleans, he really does. He wants to influence kids in New Orleans. He wants to be influential.”

“I have so much respect for Regis, not only as an athlete but as a person. He’s all about this city.”

“We’re very grateful to have this tremendous support from the city of New Orleans for this
event and honored to have Mayor LaToya Cantrell join us today.”

Top Rank Signs Super Bantamweight Contender
Carlos Castro to Multi-Year Promotional Agreement

LAS VEGAS (June 1, 2018) – Undefeated super bantamweight contender Carlos Castro has signed a multi-year promotional agreement with Top Rank, Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum announced today. Castro, a 24-year-old resident of Phoenix, Arizona, has a record of 20-0 with nine knockouts and is the current WBC USNBC super bantamweight champion.

“I am very proud of this achievement. I know that signing with Top Rank is a great opportunity for me and will bring other great opportunities to my career,” Castro said. “I am ready to continue developing my talent and demonstrate why Top Rank signed me.”

Castro was born in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico, and moved to Phoenix with his family when he was 2 years old. He had an extensive amateur career consisting of nearly 200 fights, and as a youngster, he won a pair of National Silver Gloves titles. Castro made his pro debut as an 18-year-old on June 16, 2012, winning a four-round unanimous decision over Tony Green at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix.

Castro has fought 16 of his 20 pro bouts at the Celebrity Theater, cultivating a loyal fan base in his hometown. He lives and trains in Phoenix under the guidance of Angel Soto, who has been his trainer since he was 10 years old.

Castro took a big step up in competition in September 2016 against longtime contender Jorge Diaz, stopping Diaz in the opening round. He went 2-0 in 2017, shutting out Juan Palacios over eight rounds in April and knocking out Basilio Nieves in the fourth round in October.

In his last bout, on Feb. 24 in Phoenix, Castro knocked out Alexis Santiago in the 10th and final round after Santiago’s corner threw in the towel. It was the first time Santiago (21-5-1 entering the fight) had been knocked out as a pro.

Castro’s first fight under the Top Rank banner will be announced soon.
