Middleweight contender Martin Murray (36-4-1, 17 KOs) is hoping to fight former champion Daniel Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) in the New Year.
The two fighters are now promotional stablemates with Jacobs recently signing up Eddie Hearn as part of his Matchroom USA venture.
Jacobs was in action this past weekend, and picked up one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Luis Arias at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
Murray is riding a three fight win streak since suffering a twelve round decision loss to current WBA super middleweight champion George Groves in June of 2016.
Following that loss, Murray has been bouncing between middleweight and 168-pounds. He took a middleweight fight back in April against Gabe Rosado and won a twelve round decision.
Jacobs and Murray have a common opponent in WBA, IBO, WBC, IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. Murray was stopped by Golovkin in eleven rounds back in February 2015. It remains as the only stoppage defeat of Murray's career. At the time, Murray had given Golovkin the longest fight of his career.
Jacobs snapped Murray's achievement back in March, when he went the full twelve round distance with Golovkin and lost a close unanimous decision.
"I really rate Jacobs, he is up there with the best middles in world, as he proved against Golovkin," Murray told Sky Sports. "I didn't think he beat 'GGG' but he definitely showed how good he is.
"What I liked most about that performance was how disciplined he was and his corner in particular were amazing. I would love to fight Jacobs, we've already fought in the amateurs and you know I've never dodged a fight.
"You've got that Matchroom link, so you'd think it's an easy fight to make. I know I'm in the final stages of my career so all I can do is just keep ticking over and wait for the call. I'll be making sure I'm ready for a big fight even at short notice."
