Haye, 33, has decided to work his way into a mandatory position in order the reclaim a version of the heavyweight title. His ultimate goal will be to face either Klitschko brother, and the Bernondsey fighter sees Matchroom as the ideal promotional outfit help facilitate this.

Haye has signed a four fight agreement with Matchroom, and according to Hearn, the smack talking Fury, who recovered from a knockdown to floor Steve USS Cunningham in the sixth round at Madison Square Garden last week, could be part of the picture.

"The Haye vs Vitali Klitschko fight is something we're looking at but there are huge domestic fights as well," Hearn told Sky Sports.

"The Tyson Fury fight is a big one and I think Adam (Booth) is already in discussion with their camp about a fight in September or October.

"Fury is at the stage where he needs the big fights to move on to fight a Klitschko, he's proven himself as a good fighter and big personality. But David has to force himself into a position where Klitschko has no option but to retire or fight him.

"David's got the hunger back to win the title and that's what inspired us to be part of that plan. He has a burning desire to fight a Klitschko but at the same time he wants to be involved in the biggest fights possible.

"The Fury fight is a massive one, it will generate a huge amount of money and money talks. Fury is at the stage where he needs the big fights to move on to fight a Klitschko, he's proven himself as a good fighter and big personality.

"Everyone's got an opinion on him and you need those personalities in sport. Fury against Haye is a massive fight."
