Promoter Eddie Hearn is exploring a potential catch-weight fight between Kell Brook and Chris Eubank Jr.
Brook has been out of the ring since a crushing four round knockout loss to WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford in November of last year.
After competing at junior middleweight and middleweight, Brook squeezed down for his first welterweight fight in three years.
Eubank Jr. has been away a lot longer. He was last seen in the ring in December 2019, in a fight that only lasted two rounds - as he captured the WBA interim-middleweight title when Matt Korobov was unable to continue due to injury.
Last year, Eubank announced that he signed a promotional agreement with Kalle Sauerland of Team Sauerland.
"I’m talking to Kalle Sauerland about doing something with [Kell Brook] and Eubank, and I just felt there’s history there," Hearn told Behind The Gloves.
Back in 2016, Hearn was the promoter of Eubank.
He tried to finalize a middleweight title fight between Eubank and Gennadiy Golovkin.
The negotiations fell apart, because Hearn was unable to reach an agreement on the financial terms with Eubank and his team.
Once Eubank was out - Brook stepped in and made a two weight jump to 160-pounds.
In a gusty effort, Brook was stopped in five rounds when Golovkin fractured his orbital bone.
Because of what happened, Hearn believes there is some history between the two.
"Kell took the Golovkin fight, and they had some beef back talk. I think Kell must move to 154 if he’s to carry on. Eubank, of course, is at 160. It’s just a random fight that I quite liked. Then Eubank came out in the media and said, ‘That would be a good warm-up fight, a tune-up.’ Kell sort of responded, you know," Hearn said.
