A man was laid to bed from the living room of professional boxer Regis Prograis. Regis was scheduled to fight Maurice Hooker on April 17th in a catchweight fight at 143 pounds firm. Regis coming off a loss, Hooker coming off a win. The fight didn’t happen, and that was all Mo needed to lay back like a fat cat and watch Ozark in hibernation. His name always struck me as an R&B singers name, but this emotional tune takes the cake. This is art.
Mo Drops A New Single
Mo Hooker’s Latest Single “I don’t want to kill myself no more.”
“I don’t want to kill myself to make weight,” Hooker told BoxingScene.com in an interview on Thursday night. “The fight I had in December on the (Julio Cesar) Chavez Jr. card I struggled and couldn’t make 143. Don’t want to struggle no more making weight. I want to make weight comfortably and fight the next day. I don’t want to kill myself no more.” – Mo
Regis Prograis Doesn’t Give A Fuck, Mo.
Regis took very little time to respond to quite a prolonged statement by Hooker. Nah, seriously what the fuck? So late. Hooker had just said in April that he COULDN’T WAIT to put Regis on his ass. Ya know what? Let’s go through a quick timeline.

That Don’t Sound Right…
Hooker waited till June 10th to say he was concerned about weight cutting with this fight. That’s what I’m gathering. RP fought in a FOY nominee of a fight with Josh Taylor, loss by decision, and hasn’t gotten an opponent since.
But, Mo Hooker was fortunate enough to knock some bum out in Phoenix and then sit on his ass three months to decide if he really wanted to fight The Rougarou.
I can’t find Mo with a search warrant since the pandemic. Prolly eating at several different Dallas establishments. Regis has literally been throwing leather at 12, 1, 2 AM for as long as I can remember. Nightly, every night. Not just during the pandemic. Dude wants to fight, now.
There is levels to this shit. Hooker needs to call Billy Blanks and pass on that next slice of blueberry pie. I swear this man hasn’t trained since Easter.
