It is beginning to look like we might never see Tyson Fury fight Wladimir Klitschko in the long-awaited world heavyweight title rematch.
That's after Fury pulled out of the fight - scheduled for October 29 - for the second time on Friday night after being deemed 'medically unfit'.
But fear not boxing fans, as promoter Eddie Hearn has hinted that an equally mouth-watering bout involving Klitschko could still be on the cards before the end of the year.
The Ukrainian is thought to be left feeling very frustrated after Fury's latest withdrawal and hasn't been back in the ring since losing the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles last November.
Klitschko turns 41 next year but Hearn has revealed he has already made contact with the boxer's team about a potential fight with someone 14 years his junior.
Anthony Joshua has become one of the deadliest heavyweights in the world and has been looking for his next opponent since making Dominic Breazeale his 17th knockout victim in June.
He has been scheduled to fight at the Manchester Arena on November 26 but no opponent has been confirmed.
ESPN journalist Dan Rafael cheekily asked Hearn about the possibility of organising the fight, only to learn that the promoter had already taken the first steps towards making it happen.
Should the two parties agree terms it would undoubtedly prove the toughest fight of Joshua's career to date.
Despite becoming the IBF champion in April, the Brit has barely been troubled and is yet to reach the eighth round in any of his 17 bouts.
Boxing fans around the world will now be eagerly awaiting Klitschko's response although sources involved with the Fury fight insist it is just another postponement and the rematch could still take place at a later date.
