Probellum has announced the promotional signing of former super lightweight world champion Regis Prograis.

Prograis (26-1, 22 knockouts) previously held the WBA super-lightweight and WBC Diamond super lightweight titles during his illustrious career.

He is currently ranked #3 with the WBC, #4 with the WBA, #5 with the IBF and #7 with the WBO.

"Signing Regis Prograis is a superb statement of intent and we are delighted to have him joining the team here at Probellum," said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum. "He is one of the best fighters on the planet and we're confident he will become world champion again soon.

"This is just the start of what will be an extremely stacked roster of talent at Probellum, so boxing fans can get ready to see the best and biggest fights delivered to them."

The 32-year-old Prograis holds stoppage wins over fighters such as Ivan Redkach, Kiryl Relikh, Julius Indongo and Juan Heraldez.

Prograis is the latest fighter to join forces with Probellum, after it was announced that they will continue forward as unbeaten welterweight Eimantas Stanionis’ promoter.

“Since I started boxing I’ve always wanted to become a world champion and fight all over the world," said Prograis. I decided to sign with Probellum because they are holding shows worldwide, and I can achieve my dream of fighting all over the globe.

"It is is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my boxing career alongside Probellum."
