The fighters came to terms last night, avoiding a purse bid scheduled for today.

According to a report from Ring TV, junior welterweights Regis Prograis (20-0, 17 KOs) and Viktor Postol (29-1, 12 KOs) struck a deal last night for the two to go head-to-head in a bout to be televised on Showtime. The deal cancels the need for a purse bid, which was going to happen today.

But even with and agreement to fight in place, the site and date for the bout has yet to be determined (although BoxRec has the fight pegged for March 9th at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma).

Prograis, 28, is currently the #2 rated junior welterweight in the world in the WBC’s ratings. He’s most recently coming off a TKO win over Joel Diaz Jr. last summer, marking his fifth consecutive stoppage.

Meanwhile, Postol, 34, most recently took a unanimous decision over Jamshidbek Najmiddinov this past September, his first fight back since losing his WBC title to Terence Crawford in July 2016. Postol currently holds the WBC’s #4 position at 140lbs.
