Harper, Britain’s reigning WBC super-featherweight champion, has agreed terms for a unification fight with WBA title holder Hyun-Mi Choi.

And the victor could then face the winner of a potential clash between WBO champion Mikaela Mayer and IBF champion Maiva Hamadouche.

"Eddie [Hearn] has made it vocal that's the goal, to make female champions undisputed,” Bull told Sky Sports.

"The goal now is to fight the other champions. If Terri is fighting Choi next, then there is talk that Mikaela Mayer and her team are in talks with Hamadouche for a unification.

"An undisputed fight is literally two fights away. It can happen. If Hamadouche is willing to travel over to America to fight Mayer and Terri is fighting Choi, you've basically got the semi-finals and then the winners for all the marbles.

"That's how close it is. I think potentially we are two fights away from an undisputed champion of the world."

Meanwhile, Bull claims a rematch with Natasha Jonas could still happen – following their thrilling draw last summer.

Jonas has accused Harper and her team of ‘stalling tactics’.

"Let's remember that when Terri was offered a new contract with Matchroom, we did sign for Thanderz and the Jonas fight. We did sign everything," said Bull.

"I think a few people on social media are getting slightly confused, as if Terri is running. You only have to look at Terri's resume and the fighters she has been fighting since she turned professional.

"Terri is a real fighter and it's down to me that guides her career. We did sign for the rematch, we're happy for the rematch, and obviously Natasha has her reasons and you have to respect that. She is not happy with the financial side. Well, that's nothing to do with Team Harper or anybody else.

"That's where we are at, so there has been no more talk of it. We did agree terms for the WBA champion Choi.

"As far as we believe, we have got the unification with Choi who is a very good champion."
