Prograis Vs. Haney Has ‘Virtually Been Agreed’ – Says Eddie Hearn

A fight between Regis Prograis and Devin Haney has ‘virtually been agreed.’

That is according to Eddie Hearn. Haney’s future at 135 had been subject to much speculation of late.

The ‘Dream’ became undisputed following his win over George Kambosos Jr. and then successful defenses over the Australian, as well as Vasiliy Lomachenko, followed.

However, reports indicated that Haney had asked the WBC if he could keep his belt at lightweight and still face Prograis at 140 for his WBC junior-welterweight belt.

Regardless of what the case may be, Haney’s next move appears to be Prograis.

“Both fighters are up for the fight but haven’t agreed to terms. At the same time, they’ve virtually agreed to terms, but there’s still some work to do. I think it’s very likely we’ll see that fight, but we are running out of time.

“We need to conclude it in the next 24 to 48 hours with the WBC, but that’s the fight we want to make. It’s a tremendous fight, and hopefully, we’ll be up tonight trying to get it over the line,” Hearn stated

Such a fight, therefore, may rule out a Haney bout with Shakur Stevenson. The latter is Haney’s WBC mandatory at 135.

Therefore, depending on how the WBC responds, a Haney-Stevenson bout, for now, is not any closer to being made.
