According to the New Zealand Herald, there have been preliminary discussions for a domestic heavyweight showdown between Joseph Parker and Junior Fa.
In terms of interest, local reporters in New Zealand believe it would rival the grudge match between David Tua and Shane Cameron.
The Parker vs. Fa showdown would have a slow build - where the contest would be built up over a period of at least 18 months.
Parker and Fa have fought four times as amateurs with a split of two wins each.
From the moment they both turned pro, local fans have been talking about a potential clash between the two of them.
Fa is ranked at 12 by the WBO, with Parker, the former WBO world champion, now not ranked within the top 15 by the organisation after his back to back defeats to Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte. Parker is ranked at 6 by the WBC.
Fa's manager Mark Keddell still views Parker (24-2) as being a top level fighter.
"He's had a couple of losses but he's still a top-10 fighter," Keddell said. "He is world class."
Fa, 28, has fought 15 times as a professional and has gone undefeated - but his last two fights have been lackluster with points decision against Luis Pascual in Auckland and before that a majority decision against Craig Lewis in the United States.
Back in March, Parker lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Joshua in a high profile unification with the WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO world titles at stake.
Then in July, Parker looked to get back on track, but once against tasted defeat when he suffered a twelve round decision loss to Whyte. It was a fight that saw Parker lose the early rounds and get dropped, but waited way too long to make a rally as he nearly stopped Whyte in the twelfth and final round.
