According to News Hub, Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne (26-1) is hoping to get in the ring with New Zealand star Joseph Parker (26-2).
During this year, both boxers have suffered defeats at the hands of Dillian Whyte.
Browne suffered his first career defeat, and a brutal knockout in six, at the hands of Whyte in March.
And Parker has lost his last two bouts - a March decision loss to WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO champion Anthony Joshua. And then last month he lost a twelve round decision to Whyte.
The two camps were in serious talks last year, but then Parker reached a very lucrative deal to face Joshua in a four belt unification encounter.
Back when they were in talks, both boxers were undefeated and Parker held the WBO world title.
"Lucas Browne's people are talking to us about a big trans-Tasman affair," Higgins told RadioLIVE. "It would probably make sense in Auckland or New Zealand, because Joe has a better fan base in New Zealand than Browne has in Australia, so you could mount a big trans-Tasman clash."
A loss against Browne would likely spell the end of Parker's career. It would also give Parker the opportunity to score his first knockout since 2016, when he put away Alexander Dimitrenko in 2016.
The fight is likely not going to happen in 2018 - as Browne and Parker are already on pace to take part in bouts before the end of the year.
Browne, 39, has an upcoming fight scheduled against Julius Long in Queensland for September 28, and Parker wants to have another fight before the end of the year. The location and opponent for Parker has yet to be determined.
