Boxing Fight: “The conflict has already enticed them, and they’ve made touch with us,” says the narrator. As the British contender prepares to return on October 2, live on Sky Sports, Chris Eubank Jr reveals Gennadiy Golovkin has expressed interest in a future bout.
Gennadiy Golovkin’s side has’shown interest’ in a world title bout, according to Chris Eubank Jr, with the British challenger seeking to secure ‘an epic conflict.’
If Eubank Jr defeats Sven Elbir at SSE Wembley Arena on Saturday, October 2, live on Sky Sports, he will remain on track for a world title shot.
The 31-year-old wants to face IBF champion Golovkin, which might happen once Eubank Jr receives a WBA mandatory championship match later this year.
“Immediately that the interim titles have been taken away, we’re being made mandatory challengers for the super or regular belts, so sure, we’re pushing for those fights now,” Eubank Jr told Sky Sports.
“By the end of the year, I will be fighting for and winning a world championship.”
Ryota Murata is the WBA’s’super’ champion, and Erislandy Lara is a WBA champion as well.
“I’d like to be the top dog. I’m looking for the major belt, the best belt “Eubank Jr. stated.
“We’re going to campaign for Murata because it’s the fight that makes the most sense.”
Since reclaiming his IBF title with a seventh-round stoppage of Kamil Szeremeta, Golovkin has not fought since.
Eubank Jr, on the other hand, claims that he has been picked out as a possible opponent for the Kazakh superstar.
“The fight has already piqued their interest, and they’ve contacted us,” Eubank Jr told Sky Sports. “They’ve expressed interest, so if I can win the world title, that fight is all but set.
“A future fight has piqued people’s interest. It must be [unavoidable].
“I’m the No. 1 contender, and he’s a world champion. In my weight division, I’m the most intriguing fighter. It has to happen because I’m the fighter that the people want to see in the ring with these men.
“I’ve been visualising it for years and I’m confident in my ability to defeat him. All I have to do now is wait for the opportunity, which is on its way.
