Martin Murray and Chris Eubank Jr have suggested that they could face each other later in 2016 after exchanging words on social media.
Last month, a clash between the two looked unlikely with Murray being outclassed by George Groves and Eubank nearing a deal to face world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, but failure to conclude negotiations with the Kazakh has left the British champion with limited options.
The 26-year-old has been ordered to defend his domestic belt against Tommy Langford but both Murray and Eubank have talked up a potential bout between themselves.
@MartinMurrayBox it would be a great fight... unfortunately not for you.— Chris Eubank Jr (@ChrisEubankJr) July 15, 2016
Ok big lad. You'll most probably use this as another publicly stunt but if your Dad will let you...lets do it! https://t.co/ejK9HbZc7X— Martin Murray (@MartinMurrayBox) July 16, 2016
Murray held the British middleweight title in 2011 but he has since moved up to super-middleweight.
