David Haye and Dereck Chisora are set to settle their differences in the ring rather than out of it, according to reports.
The British heavyweights notoriously traded blows in Munich in February, when they violently clashed at a press conference following Chisora's loss to Vitali Klitschko.
"It's a natural fight, it doesn't matter what anyone says," promoter Frank Warren reportedly said in quotes carried by a number of websites.
The fall-out of the Munich scrap was a messy one, with Chisora having his license rescinded by the British Boxing Board of Control while Haye, who is technically retired, was largely unrepentant.
Their respective careers appeared to be over, especially with the Klitschko brothers seeming to have little interest in either of them and no license to box with.
But the quotes attributed to Warren, who is Chisora's promoter, suggest that a summer meeting could be on the cards.
"It's a bigger fight than either of them fighting Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko. There's a lot for them to fight about - in a proper environment," he reportedly said. "I do see the fight happening. It's the proper forum for them to settle their differences."
The prospect of a showdown has also gained momentum after Warren extended an invitation to the media to attend a press conference at West Ham`s Upton Park ground next Tuesday.
It is thought he will confirm Kevin Mitchell and Ricky Burns as his next big promotion, although it now seems there could be another domestic bout to announce.
Chisora himself has revealed his desire to return to the ring, with his appeal against his suspension set to be heard on May 14. When asked if he wanted to fight Haye in an interview with ITV London, he said: "I want to fight everybody."
