Talk of the next big British superfight is gathering momentum, with online rumours suggesting that Billy Joe Saunders and Amir Khan are looking to arrange a bout.
Saunders (25-0, 12 by KO) is the reigning WBO middleweight world champion, and defended his title recently with a unanimous points win over American Willie Monroe Jr.
Meanwhile, Khan (31-4, 19 by KO) who is known as a welterweight by profession, actually last boxed at middleweight in June last year when he fought Canelo Alvarez in a world title fight.
The result of that fight? A defeat in brutal fashion, as Canelo knocked him out in the sixth round.
Saunders thought that he was on track to fight the winner of the Gennady Golovkin vs Alvarez fight, but with that ending in a contentious draw, the 28-year-old from Hertfordshire is looking for a new opponent.
While naturally disappointed with the setback, a fight with Khan would be a great contingency plan as he is a very marketable fighter in his own right as well as being a very worthy opponent.
Both fighters share a common bond in that they represented Great Britain in Olympic competition.
Khan won a silver in the lightweight division at the Athens Olympics, while Saunders reached the second round in the welterweight division four years later in Beijing.
The Boxing news and views website published a tweet from Saunders which said: "I think @amirkingkhan is a good fighter and have total respect for him love the chance to have a punch up."
As of yet, there has been no response from Khan.
Boxing negotiations are often complex affairs, and at this moment, it is uncertain what Khan thinks about the possibility.
However, as the fight between Tony Bellew and David Haye attracted massive interest in the country, seeing another all-British fight would be another major boost for the sport.
