    “Prograis and DBE further informed Comosa that Prograis is withdrawing from the WBSS, effective immediately.”

    With the withdrawal, Prograis also walks away from a potential $2 million payday had he defeated Scotland’s Taylor (15-0, 12KOs) in the finals.

    Of course, a payday is a lot nicer when the money is guaranteed. At no point in the second season of the WBSS tournament has that been the case.

    The complaint indicates that “plaintiffs bring this action to resolve the justiciable issue of Prograis’ status as a WBSS participant. Specifically, Plaintiffs seek a declaration that Comosa’s conduct, in not entering into a new escrow agreement on substantially similar terms as the original Escrow Agreement, violates the material terms of the Escrow Agreement with DBE and Prograis and the parties bargain for Prograis’ continued participation in the WBSS.

    Yet more bad news for DAZN on the boxing front. I think they signed a 3 year deal to show this tournament and it looks like it’s dead already.

    Damn shame. Think Taylor beats him anyway. Hope they can still make the fight at some point

    Could have been FOTY candidate and the most meaningful JWW fight in a long time. It's a real shame.

    I’m sure they’ll come to some agreement to save the fight, but I can’t see fighters wanting to get involved with the tournament going forward. Unless maybe they deal with the really light weight divisions.

    I seriously hope they can work this out. This one needs to happen.
