David Grace will meet Nigel Bond in Sunday's gold medal match at the World Games in Kaohsiung, Chinese Taipei.

Grace only turned professional last year but the former English amateur champion enjoyed a 3-1 win over Soheil Vahedi in the last four, which included a break of 1-3 in the second frame, to book his place in the final.

Bond found his passage to the showpiece event slightly tougher, the former British Open champion and World Championship finalist taking five frames to see off the challenge of Mohammed Shehab 3-2.

Shehab took third place after beating Vahedi 3-2 in the bronze medal play-off match.
