Regis "Rougarou" Prograis
Regis Prograis has one of the more exotic nicknames in boxing, taken from a mythical creature that struck fear into the hearts of Louisiana natives.
A fast and agile figure with bone-breaking power emerging from the swamplands in search of human prey. For centuries, tales of the shape-shifting, wolf-like Rougarou have terrified children and fascinated legend hunters but remained the stuff of Louisianan folklore.

Prograis stormed into the pros in 2012, scoring 15 knockout victories and four unanimous decisions in his first 19 bouts.
Yet the impressive record wasn’t enough to shield him from the low pay and sleazy dealing common in the lower rungs of prizefighting.
He wasn’t paid after many of those fights. And once an organizer of a bout handed him a check for $1.
Regis framed the check. It hangs on a wall as motivation.
