Seven years after it first appeared a realistic possibility, Amir Khan vs Kell Brook could finally be on the verge of happening.
This is according to promoter Eddie Hearn who has previously represented both men and was unable to match them together for several years.
At first, Brook was a rising welterweight contender around the time Khan was champion in weight class below.
Khan was dethroned and moved up to join his fellow Brit at 147lbs.
Brook then won his world title in late 2014 and they seemed destined to meet in a British super fight.
However, despite several attempts over the years that followed, the contest never came to fruition.
Now, both men have been stopped multiple times by other opponents and appear to be nearing the ends of their careers.
When asked if he believes recent rumours suggesting that the fight could happen now, Hearn told Behind the Gloves: “I think you will get it, yeah.
“I’ve had a couple of chats with them, I think there’s a few broadcasters looking at it. I don’t know if we’ll do it.
“It’s still a big fight, not what it once was, let’s be honest, but it’s still an intriguing fight.
“I don’t know it’ll definitely happen, but you do finally have the two guys going, ‘Yeah, it’s probably win or bust and it’ll be my last one if I lose.’
“At one stage it was for the world championship, a legacy fight in the division. Now it’s just a grudge match.
“It’s still great and I’d still put it on myself. It’s still a good fight.
“But yeah, there are definitely talks.
“I think they’re just pitching it out there, their representatives, to say, ‘Who wants to pay up?’”
