Eddie Hearn has been approached by Robbie Williams about a potential celebrity boxing match involving him and Liam Gallagher.

The 'Angels' singer, 45, has a well-publicised rivalry with Gallagher , 47, which dates back to the mid-nineties.

Williams admitted back in October he hoped to battle it out with the Oasis frontman in a bout similar to that of Youtube stars KSI and Logan Paul .

He told GQ at the time: "Id love it. But Id want it to be a professional fight. Ive seen how much KSI and Logan Paul made from theirs and I think we could trounce that.

"But, yeah, I think last time in the noughties Liam wanted to go down to an abandoned railway track or something. I dont want to do that. Its got to be f****** whistles and bells if it happens."

Now it seems the potential plans have gone a step further, after Williams revealed on the Jonathan Ross show that he has made contact with Eddie Hearn over staging a bout with Gallagher.

He claims that Hearn - who promoted the KSI vs Logan Paul fight - is up for it, although Gallagher is yet to reply.

The pair were good friends at the height of Williams' fame with Take That in the nineties, before a bitter falling out.

Williams famously called out Gallagher while accepting an ward at the Brit Awards one year, taunting: "Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough."

He has since referred to Gallagher as a school bully in a recent interview with the Sun.

I admire [Gallagher]. He is the voice of a generation, the last of a dying breed, as pop stars are so boring these days, he said.

But I still want to fight him. He represents a school bully to me and I would like to take the bully down.

KSI and Logan Paul's fight drew much interest, although Hearn stated prior to their professional bout that the celebrity match would be a one-off.
