Regis Prograis is ready to climb back atop the mountain.

The 33-year-old has a chance to become a two-time junior welterweight world champion when he takes on Jose "Chon" Zepeda Saturday at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

Prograis (27-1, 23 KOs), a New Orleans native based in Houston, Texas, joined the World Boxing Super Series tournament in 2018 with the chance of becoming a unified 140-pound world champion. He came up just a hair short. After defeating Terry Flanagan and Kiryl Relikh to win the WBA title, Prograis stepped up against then-IBF titlist and eventual undisputed champion Josh Taylor in October 2019. After 12 hard-fought rounds, Taylor escaped with a majority decision win, two belts, and the coveted Muhammad Ali Trophy.

The loss couldn't have come at a worse time for Prograis, as the COVID-19 pandemic subsequently shut down sports around the globe. As a result, the southpaw was forced to sit out nearly an entire year before knocking out Juan Heraldez in three rounds on Halloween night in 2020. He has fought just two times since, picking up a pair of sixth-round stoppages over Ivan Redkach and Tyrone McKenna.

Zepeda has twice fought for a world title, and unfortunate circumstances have plagued him in both bouts. In 2015, he challenged Flanagan for the WBO lightweight title but suffered a second-round TKO after dislocating his left shoulder. In 2019, Zepeda was controversially outpointed by Jose Ramirez for the same WBC 140-pound title that he will fight for a second time on Saturday. Zepeda (36-2, 28 KOs), of La Puente, California has now won five in a row, including two electrifying knockouts.

The 33-year-old, who, like Prograis, is a southpaw, is coming off a second-round KO of Francisco Perez last February in a stay-busy fight in Mexico. In his prior bout, he destroyed Josue Vargas in a first-round knockout.
