It looks like Tony Bellew will come up against Oleksandr Usyk in the coming months after it emerged that Eddie Hearn had held talks with the Ukrainian's promoter over the highly anticipated showdown.
"The first meeting was good and it looks inevitable at this stage," Bellew told Sky Sports.
"Things can change though, you just don't know how it all lands. We'll see. We haven't agreed a venue yet and other things, but it's looking likely now."

But just how good is Usyk, who has reigned as the undisputed cruiserweight champion since July 2018.
Footage has emerged of the 31-year-old's incredible and quite frankly, frightening, punching power ahead of a potential bout with Bellew.
I mean, just look at the neck.
Bellew went on to speak about how he is 'already out of the game financially' as he could potentially come up against one of the most feared fighters in the world:
"It is moving in the right direction. We've got to agree something and get it written down on paper and we'll take it from there. Eddie is happy, I am happy and there has been no major demands on my part, as I don't feel there needs to be.
"Without sounding like a big head I've done alright out of the game; financially, I've won a world title and I have done everything I could have possibly dreamed of - and a bit more.
"So now I am chasing greatness. I dare to be great, are the words I am going to use."
Usyk or Bellew?
