“We’re making great progress. There is still a lot to overcome. We are looking at venues and dates,” Hearn said.

“We’re in a good place,” he added.

“It’s fair to say that, in principle, both guys have agreed to that fight. Two fights. (There’s) a lot to overcome in the meantime. We’re moving in the right direction. I’m confident that both guys have given their blessings for the fight to go ahead.”
