WBA interim-middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. has continued to train hard in Florida, with head trainer and former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr.
The boxer recently signed a promotional agreement with Team Sauerland, which is run by boxing brothers Kalle and Nisse Sauerland.
Eubank Jr. - at 31-years-old - is focused to reach his full potential.
“It’s time to finish some unfinished business,” Eubank said to The Independent.
Sauerland is looking to have Eubank fight three times in 2021 - with the first outing taking place on a date in April.
The veteran promoter is attempting to secure IBF, IBO champion Gennadiy Golovkin - whether it's for April or another date this year.
“Eubank will be out in April, in the summer and then at the end of the year. That’s the plan, but this is boxing,” said Kalle to The Independent. “We are looking at Golovkin and (Kell) Brook - good fights.”
Eubank Jr. is very focused on landing Golovkin.
The 38-year-old Golovkin has been one of the fighters near the top of the middleweight division for years - but in recent bouts his performances gave off the appearance of a fighter who is slowing down.
Eubank Jr. and GGG were scheduled to face each other in 2016, with the contest falling through after Eubank Jr. was unable to reach an agreement on the terms with his then promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom. Eubank Jr. was later replaced by Kell Brook, who Golovkin stopped in five rounds.
Eubank Jr. believes the moment is right to revisit the Golovkin fight.
“They (the Sauerlands) were in the right place, at the right time and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Right now I’m in my prime, I’m the number one contender, I have a new coach, a new promoter and they will deliver. I want Golovkin, it’s that simple," Eubank Jr. said.
