NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans is getting ready for one heck of a fight.

On July 14 at the Lakefront Arena, New Orleans’ own Regis “The Rougarou” Prograis, the WBC Light Welterweight Champion, will take on Juan Jose Velasco for the Super Lightweight Championship. Prograis is 21-0 and Velasco is 20-0.

The fight will be at UNO’s Lakefront Arena as a lead-in on the ESPN telecast to the Manny Pacquiao fight against Lucas Matthysse.
