Both boxers are said to be ‘close to agreeing terms’ with the date and venue still to be confirmed.

If the fight is to be confirmed then trainer Brian ‘Bomac’ McIntyre will be put in an awkward position.

McIntyre currently trains both men having begun working with Eubank Jr ahead of before his rematch with Liam Smith.
