Amir Khan's trainer believes a match between his fighter and Kell Brook would be 'good for Great Britain'.
Khan is in talks over a possible fight with Manny Pacquiao next year while Brook's next assignment is an IBF world title defence against Diego Chaves, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Khan himself has confirmed preliminary talks have taken place about a contest against Brook next year, with Wembley being cited as a potential venue.
And his trainer, Virgil Hunter, believes such a contest will be highly beneficial to the sport in this country.
"I would hope at some point that they both fight each other," Hunter told BoxingScene.com. "I know it would be good for Great Britain, good for him and good for boxing.
"I've never pushed him to take the fight because it's obvious there are some things going on between them from long before I came along.
"[There have been] little bits and pieces that I get like, 'you disrespected me' or 'you're not well known enough' or who won the sparring sessions when they were amateurs.
"It has all the ingredients for a big fight. I'm sure that if both continue to fight that the fight's going to happen."
