Promoter Frank Warren is exploring the idea of matching two 2008 Olympic team-mates against each other on September 15th at the O2 Arena in London.
Warren is looking at the possibility of having WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders move up in weight to challenge IBF super middleweight titlist James DeGale.
Saunders would move up by eight pounds to take the fight.
Saunders was twice scheduled this year to face Martin Murray and withdrew in both instances with injuries.
He is expected to be ready to fight by September.
DeGale, who captured Olympic gold in 2008, has looked a few steps behind in his last two fights. In December of last year, he was shockingly upset by Caleb Truax, who some bookies listed as a 100-1 underdog. DeGale barely reclaimed the title in their rematch earlier this year.
Saunder has been out of the ring since last December, when he showcased his career-best performance with a dominating decision win over David Lemiuex.
Warren has no issue with Saunders heading up to take that fight.
“He’d have to go up and give away weight if that did happen, but we will see if it can be done,” the promoter told Boxing News.
“I think all of those names are in the hat. That would be a great fight. I’m sure all the fans would come out for that. All those names at the moment are there to be considered. I’ve got to sit down with Bill, which I will do over the weekend and we’ll work out what we’re going to do.”
Saunders had a deal in place to face middleweight king Gennady Golovkin on August 25th at The Forum in Los Angeles, but the contest fell out when GGG finalized a rematch deal with Canelo Alvarez for September 15th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
