The Wanted have joked they want to take on One Direction in a "boxing match".
There has been friendly rivalry between the two British boybands for months.
Recently One Direction member Louis joked "if they want a rivalry, let's do it!" during a magazine interview.
The Wanted - consisting of Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes - have now decided on a way to end the feud once and for all.
"Why don't we just have a boxing match? Pick out of a hat, one each against each and let's do it!" Max joked to British newspaper The Mirror.
"And afterwards we'll go for a pint and be friends."
"Yeah let's do that, celebrity death match!" Tom added.
Both groups have enjoyed great success in the charts, with The Wanted reaching number one with their hit Chasing The Sun in the US.
Teenage heartthrobs One Direction - consisting of Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne - are an even match for The Wanted, also hitting the top of the US charts with their debut album Up All Night.
