Promoter Frank Warren has revealed that he is open to making a fight between Zolani Tete and Naoya Inoue, stating he would "sign up for it in a heartbeat".
At the weekend, two-weight World Champion Inoue battered Yoann Boyeaux in three rounds to retain his WBO World Super-Flyweight Title in Japan. Now he plans to move up to Bantamweight, where Tete holds the WBO crown.
"Naoya Inoue was also not shy in naming names as he clearly wants to take on the best at Bantamweight and that is obviously Zolani Tete," Warren wrote in his latest column.
"Do you know what, that would be the fight that Rigondeaux-Lomachenko wasn’t! There would be no swerving this one from either man and it would be an absolute belter," he added.
Tete is scheduled to take on mandatory challenger Omar Narvaez next on February 10th in London, but Warren believes the Inoue bout could be made after that: "There is no reason at all why this mega-fight cannot happen. We would sign up for it in a heartbeat."
Last week, Tete revealed that he too would be happy to take on the avoided man nicknamed 'Monster', who boasts a record of 15-0 with 13 knockouts.
"Those are the kind of fights we're looking for. I'm ready to fight anyone in the Bantamweight division," said the South African.
Tete was hopeful of securing a showdown with Ryan Burnett, but the Belfast boxer's team are seemingly reluctant to discuss a unification.
