Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom is hoping to revive discussions for a domestic heavyweight blockbuster between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.
Joshua, who Hearn promotes, is scheduled to fight Jermaine Franklin next Saturday night in London.
Fury, the current WBC world champion was in deep negotiations for an undisputed fight with WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA champion Oleksandr Usyk.
The two sides were unable to reach an agreement, with their contest falling apart on Wednesday.
Should Joshua win on April 1, Hearn is ready and willing to get back on horse with making a fight against Fury. In the past, Fury and Joshua have ultimately failed to finalize a fight on two occasions.
"The AJ fight is worth so much more financially to Tyson Fury than the Usyk fight," Hearn told Daily Mail. "So for me, the way I'm looking at it is, if AJ does a job on Franklin I would like to go straight into the Tyson Fury fight.
"We've already got the terms. We've got the basis of that fight agreed, which we would still accept coming through a victory on April 1st, and I would like to make AJ against [Fury] and I would make that now.
"I'll sit down with George Warren and I will thrash out a deal to get that fight over the line. But [Joshua] still has to win April 1st. He's coming back from those defeats, it's a very tough fight. I'm nervous, but hopefully he can make a statement and then call out Tyson Fury after that. Josh also his reservations over how serious Tyson Fury is."
Despite the claims by Usyk and his handlers, Hearn does not believe Fury had any fear of facing the Ukrainian boxer.
"I don't think that Tyson Fury's scared of fighting anyone," Hearn said. "He's a smart guy. He knows how difficult the fight is, and I don't think he believed that Usyk would take 70-30.
"So call it clever negotiations, call it a double bluff, whatever you want to do. It's a little bit like with the AJ stuff. He came out and said "this is the deal, this is the date." And we went back and said December 17 is actually [better], can we do that date?
'He said "no, it has to be December 3rd or no fight." And it's like why? Why? Because the reason being is he thought AJ wouldn't accept December 3rd. So AJ came back and went "f--- it, I'll fight December 3rd." Then we went back and it broke down from there. So it feels a little bit similar in that respect where he calls the terms that he thinks the opponent won't take."
