Following the abandonment of their semi-final matchup, defending champion Sparta Boss and 2012 winner Leopold Street, will lock horns today from 17:00hrs, at the National Cultural Center Tarmac in the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Georgetown Zone.
The victor of the matchup, will book a date with Gold is Money in the grand finale slated for Saturday at the Demerara Park Tarmac, Thirst Park.
