Eubank Jr settled his bitter rivalry with Liam Williams, winning on a unanimous points decision.

Brook, meanwhile, triumphed in an even bigger grudge clash against Amir Khan, stopping the Bolton man in the sixth round.

Now, according to Team Eubank Jr, the two could clash soon, with discussions well underway – as long as the outcome is “sensible”.

Speaking to Sky Sports, promoter Kalle Sauerland said: “I can confirm that we had meetings with Boxxer last week and they are now speaking to Brook.

We’re in a positive dialogue and it’s a fight that we would love to get made.

“The question is whether certain issues can be resolved.

“If everyone is sensible, I can see that happening and I can see it being a big summer blockbuster.

“But there’s still work to be done. We’re ready. Our terms are known.”

Eubank Jr has previously called for Brook to come back up to middleweight but the ex-welterweight champion wants to meet in between.

A July pay-per-view date had been in talks but promoter Ben Shalom admitted the size dispute could see negotiations collapse.

Shalom told talkSPORT: “I was with Kell on Tuesday. It’s a fight that Chris certainly wants. It’s going to come down to weight. We are looking at it.”
