Chris Eubank Jr says that a middleweight showdown with Kazakh icon Gennady Golovkin remains at the top of his agenda when the boxing schedule resumes.

Eubank, who came close to facing ‘GGG’ before the middleweight destroyer faced Kell Brook instead, told the PBC Podcast:

“My number one pick [to fight] is a toss-up between Golovkin and [Canelo] Alvarez. I’ve wanted to fight Golovkin for years. I was literally a day or two away from facing him, and it got taken away and given to Kell Brook by Eddie Hearn. That’s the fight that I would love.”

Eubank also expressed his desire to face Mexican superstar Canelo, as well as WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo, whom he shared a bill with back in December. The 30-year-old described both men as beatable and insisted he had the style to trouble boxing’s biggest star.

“Alvarez, of course [I’d want to fight him]. He is the biggest name in boxing right now and I think he’s more than beatable,” said Eubank. “With my type of style, speed, punch output and fearlessness, I wouldn’t go in there to survive like so many others. I’ll go in there and meet him head on. If he wants to scrap, we’ll scrap. If he wants to box, we can box. I can do it all.

“Any man who’s got a belt is on my radar. The Charlo fight is one I’m definitely looking to get this year. Nothing impresses me about him. He hasn’t fought anyone of note. I see a hell of a lot of weaknesses in his ability. That’s a fight I believe I would win comfortably.”
