DON KING is planning to fly to London next week for talks with Lennox Lewis' promoter Panos Eliades and manager Frank Maloney.

The visit promises some long-awaited progress in the bid to pair WBC champion Lewis and WBA and IBF title-holder Evander Holyfield in a multi- million pound unification clash next March or April.

"Everybody is talking, that's the main thing," said Maloney yesterday.

"Don does not fear Lewis. He's quite happy to put the fight on, but obviously the financial terms have to be met."

King and Maloney are poised to strike up a business agreement, with Maloney anchoring the American promoter's boxing interests on this side of the Atlantic.

But the deal would not end Maloney's nine-year relationship with Lewis. "Don does not see a conflict," added Maloney.

"Maybe our relationship will bring a Holyfield match that much nearer."
