British boxing stars Kell Brook and Amir Khan "are in talks" to fight each other in May 2017, according to IBF welterweight world champion Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn.

Both pugilists experienced chastening defeats when they stepped up a weight division to middleweight - Brook's bout with the outstanding Kazakh Gennady Golovkin being halted in the fifth round and Khan going one round further with Mexican Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Both Khan and Brook said they would not make that mistake again and reverted to welterwight.
