A showdown between British rivals Amir Khan and Kell Brook could be on the horizon.

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom is attempting to seal the deal on the contest.

Should everything come together, the two former would champions could potentially collide on a date in December in Saudi Arabia.

Over the years, there were several failed attempts to make a Khan-Brook encounter.

Khan, 34-years-old, has been out of the ring since July of 2019. And Brook, 35-years-old, last fought in December when he was knocked out by WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.

Khan held a meeting with Hearn on Tuesday, to discuss the details of a showdown with Brook.

Hearn indicates that both boxers are looking to sell the fight to the highest bidder.

The Matchroom boss has an exclusive content deal with the DAZN streaming service - but there could be a scenario where the fight heads elsewhere, like Sky Sports.

“I would do the fight, it is still a great fight, but it is not the fight it once was. It’s an auction with two guys who want to make as much money as they can. I want to do the fight but only at the right price," Hearn said to The Sun.

“Both guys see this as their last fight so whoever pays the most money (promoter/broadcaster) will get the fight. DAZN has an idea of what we think the fight is worth, I think Sky would just put it on pay-per-view and that could be risky.”

In a recent interview, Brook explained that he still believes a contest with Khan will be a major event.

“Aside from AJ vs Tyson Fury, it is still the biggest fight in British boxing. And I still think everyone will get very excited about this fight," Brook said.

“I have always wanted that fight and I think he finally wants it now too. I have done everything in my career and this grudge fight will be the icing on the cake. It will happen, it has to.”
