Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury could walk to the ring at the same time for their £200million mega-fight.
The heavyweight world champions are set to clash in Saudi Arabia this summer in the biggest fight since Floyd Mayweather took on Manny Pacquiao.
The rivals thrashed out the details of their contract last month, including who should walk to the ring first.
Traditionally in boxing the champion walks second but in this case both men hold world titles. In the past, such disputes have been resolved with the toss of a coin.
But promoter Eddie Hearn has suggested Fury and Joshua could make their entrances simultaneously.
“You will see. Maybe they will walk at the same time, " he said. “It would be unique. From different sides of the arena. That would solve a problem.
“In the world today, people are more willing to be accepting and understanding and rather than muck about with it, let’s just get this done. So I don’t think we will have any problems.
“The walk in at the same time is genuinely something I have thought about as a spectacle rather than a contractual issue.”
Fury and Joshua have both opted to host the fight in Saudi Arabia but no date has been set.
