Tyson Fury could face Oleksandr Usyk in a ‘spectacular’ undisputed clash at the home of the Las Vegas Raiders next summer.
That’s if both men win their next fights to remain the belt holders at heavyweight.
Fury, 33, defends his WBC title against Deontay Wilder this weekend in Las Vegas.
Usyk faces a rematch with Anthony Joshua for the WBA, IBF and WBO belts in March.
But the Gypsy King’s US promoter Bob Arum would love to bring the undisputed bout to Sin City and is eyeing the new Allegiant Stadium as a host.
“It could be in Vegas,” said the Top Rank boss.
“We now have this big football stadium, it is indoors and it seats 65,000 for a football game so you could do 75,000 with seats on the floor. That would be spectacular.”
Arum insists he won’t put any future plans to Fury until he deals with the danger of Wilder this weekend.
But he plans to have Fury out in February again to keep him active while they wait to see who wins the rematch between Joshua and Usyk.
That fight could be against Dillian Whyte if the Brit beats Otto Wallin later this month and gets called as the WBC mandatory.
If Joshua regains his titles then Arum will reignite talks with Eddie Hearn for the all-British clash.
But the American promoter, who guided Muhammad Ali’s career for a long period, doesn’t want that fight to go to Saudi Arabia.
Tyson Fury warned he "won't want any more" of Deontay Wilder with fourth bout ruled out
The two looked set to meet in the Middle East in the summer until Wilder won an arbitration to force the third fight with Fury.
Arum said: “I think these fights belong either in the UK or in the US.
“I don’t think we should be running after other countries to put up money to stage these fights.
“We did it with Ali twice, once in Zaire and once in the Philippines, but again you can’t take your biggest fights and do it outside of the two biggest boxing countries.
“You’d never do that with the Super Bowl, or a Premier League game.”
