Eddie Hearn has told Sky Sports that an offer is on the table for Carl Frampton to fight Scott Quigg next spring.
The big domestic clash is one of the most mouth-watering prospects between two undefeated fighters, with both sides confident of winning super-bantamweight bragging rights.
Quigg, who is the current WBA champion, will defend his title on November 23 as part of a packed undercard for the Carl Froch vs George Groves showdown in Manchester.
Frampton, meanwhile, will return from an eight-month hiatus next weekend when he defends his European and IBF inter-continental titles against Frenchman Jeremy Parodi.
Should both fighters come through unscathed a fight in the first half of next year could be in play.
"We have made a huge offer to Frampton's licenced manager and promoter Barry McGuigan for Carl to fight Scott in March on Sky Sports, and are looking forward to opening talks in the coming weeks," said Hearn.
It is understood Frank Warren, on whose TV channel Frampton is contracted to appear following a deal with McGuigan earlier this year, had offered Hearn a February fight for Quigg.
