America’s WBA champion Prograis will unify titles with Scotland’s IBF champion Taylor, after they both won belts in their respective semi-finals.

Regis’ team initially filed a lawsuit with the intention of pulling out of the tournament due to financial and timescale concerns, however a deal has now been done to fuse the final with Eddie Hearn’s October 26 show to make a pay-per-view card.
