Prograis’ team initially filed a lawsuit with the intention of pulling out of the tournament due to financial and timescale concerns.
However it is now reported by
Mike Coppinger that these issues are being worked out.
It’s claimed that Prograis vs Taylor is being targeted for October 26 at the O2 Arena in London, a date previously held by Eddie Hearn at the venue.
While this is not yet confirmed, it appears the promoter is working to help salvage the WBSS final and fuse their show with his in order to put together a Sky Sports pay-per-view.

confirmed a deal is ‘nearly there’ for him to face Derek Chisora on October 26 at the O2 Arena.
Coppinger, that heavyweight clash will now serve as the co-main event beneath Prograis vs Taylor.
