Matchroom Boxing head Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports per Fight Sports:
“We see two fights between them in April-June and November-December. Now we are thinking where these fights will take place, but if the two British champions fight outside the country, it will be very disappointing. I know, many people think that I make all the decisions I. Actually, it is not. We will consider all the proposals, submit them to the teams of fighters for discussion, and then we will choose the most appropriate one. “
