Prediction,

I like this fight.
I think Indongo is a great test for Prograis, he is a replacement for Postol, who withdrew from the fight because of a injury, I think he is a tougher opponent for Prograis than Postol would have been.

Prograis is probably a very heavy favourite, he's unbeaten, he's a big puncher, a dangerous fighter, and it does seem as if it is his time now. Indongo will be considered a stepping stone, he isn't, but that is how people will view him after the Crawford loss.

I think if Indongo was a few years younger than he is, and he had more power, he'd be a very good fighter, he's 35, he hasn't stopped a high amount of opponents, but often in boxing, a fighter doesn't need devastating natural power to score a knockout, and as Indongo showed us against Troyanovsky, he can set a guy up, catch them off guard, he has the skill, the timing to do that, and he has enough power to hurt a guy. Indongo is a very good fighter, underrated in my opinion, he is awkward, he can box, he has skill, athleticism, and he is very tall for 140, 5'10-5'11 is tall for even 147, so certainly for 140, height is a great advantage, and Indongo has good reach as well.
I think Indongo's awkwardness, height, reach will be problematic for Prograis.
Age is very important in boxing, 29 is slightly later than ideal for a fighter in his first real meaningful fight, but he is in his prime, and he is fighting a guy 6 years older than him.

Prograis is the puncher here, he is big for the weight, he isn't naturally bigger than Indongo, but he's probably much physically stronger, early in a fight than a quite spindly Indongo.

I think Prograis is very good, I don't think he is great, I don't think he is the most complete fighter, but he is obviously a puncher, he is a monster at the level he has already dominated at, but at world level, the questions can't be answered yet. When he turned professional, Prograis was already a puncher, obviously, I don't think he was a ever fighter who lacked discipline, he always fought hard, he was a good pressure fighter, but he wasn't a fighter who made a great, convincing start time his professional career.
I've seen Prograis fight twice, once in 2013, and once in 2017, I noticed his head movement improved massively, his work ethic has improved, he must be a more dangerous fighter now, his ability to walk a guy down, has improved as well, I don't think he's fleet footed though, and in terms of covering the canvas well, sort of Shawn Porter esc, I don't think he has that attribute. I think Prograis is a great inside fighter. This fight should answer the million dollar question, how good is Prograis, he could be another Chris Eubank Jr, Cletus Seldin, Tamas Kovacs, he could also be another Gervonta Davis, Jermall Charlo, Errol Spence, we know he can power through Joel Diaz Jr, Abel Ramos, Aaron Herrera, decent fighters, but when he steps up (and this is a massive step up in class), how much of his skill and boxing ability will he take with him?, will he get better or worse with the increased level of challenge?

I think this fight be very fascinating to watch, because the younger, stronger fighter, the puncher, will be confronted with a whole new set of challenges, and the underdog will capitalise upon any of his flaws, attributes he can't take up to this level. Indongo is a nightmare to fight, he doesn't fade in fights, and it is very discouraging not to be able to use the pace against an opponent, if Prograis can control the pace, take Indongo into deep waters early, it could be a different story, but Indongo has experience, he knows how to use his height and reach, and Prograis, unlike in his previous fights, will be made to pay for his mistakes.

I give Indongo a shot, I think he will have plenty of success, win some rounds, people will be thinking again about writing him off, but I think Prograis is one heck of a fighter, the timing suits him, he has a lot to gain from victory, I think he's the one who can take risks, and ultimately, his level of talent, his age, his power, will be important.

I think Prograis stops Indongo in 10, I wouldn't be shocked if Prograis stopped Indongo absolutely whenever, because he can punch, and some fighters, in the second half of their thirties, coming off such a tough defeat, just plummet. I wouldn't be shocked if Indongo put Prograis in his place, managed the upset, because sometimes, it can be so much about levels, that the young puncher can be found out as overestimated. I think Indongo was good enough when he was younger, is dedicated enough, and will have bounced back well enough from the Crawford loss, that he can still do well at this level, he isn't as good as he was when he beat Ricky Burns, but I think he is still good enough to give Prograis problems.

I don't think he will ever be as good as Crawford, Spence, but I think Prograis is very good, even at world level, I see him going as far in boxing as maybe Sergey Kovalev, Lucas Matthysse, but I could be wrong, he could be better than that, he could also be worse than that, we won't know until this fight, it will be interesting to see how Prograis deals with Indongo.

Prediction.
Close to call, head says Prograis, heart says Indongo.

Hoping for Indongo after that spotlight, seems like a great man.

What a power display from Regis Progaris!
That was very frustrating to watch in a sense, because for the duration of the rounds, it was Indongo who was landing most of the shots, but at the end of the round, Prograis, attacking with shots that didn't even look that devastating when they landed, but you see the impact as Indongo falls like a ton of bricks.
I think Prograis has a phenomenal amount of power, he is a very, very dangerous puncher, and he's a great inside fighter, works away at the body, he's a counter puncher as well. This was a great statement from Prograis, he has to be taken seriously now, I think without question, he deserves a shot at the winner of Sergey Lipinets vs Mikey Garcia, and this year, I think he's ready, and he's earned it.
I think 140 is a more competitive division than people think, I actually think Crawford might have been wise to stick around, but even without Crawford, you have Garcia, who is the high flyer in the division, you have Josh Taylor, Prograis of course, and at this weight, Broner is a beast.
If Mikey wins tomorrow, I think he should fight Prograis, you couldn't blame a champion for avoiding a fighter like Prograis, but Mikey Garcia will fight anyone, I'm very confident he would give Prograis a shot, what a fight that could be!

140 heating up Prograis say he gonna take over we'll see my questions is Indongo gonna move to Texas or Louisiana If you can't beat em join em, what Blue Machine gonna do.

You Americans are dominant in boxing, Crawford, Garcia, Spence, Wilder.
I don't think Prograis beats Mikey Garcia, but he's at the very least a threat, man, he can hit! After this performance, I'm not sure I'd favour anyone other than Garcia to beat Prograis.

I'd like to see the winners from tonight fight next, Indongo doesn't handle getting hit well to be sure, but his balance is terrible which i believe was the cause of the first knockdown. Ivan vs Regis would be fun, Beast hits like a truck and though Regis looked good tonight he's very hittable as Indongo proved again and again until the end. I'd probably pick Regis to win on points, but I believe this would be a great fight.
