Curtis Stevens Would Love To Get Hands On 'Scared' Eubank Jr.

By Edward Chaykovsky

Middleweight contender Curtis Stevens (28-5, 21KOs) believes Chris Eubank Jr. was 'scared' to execute the bout agreement for a fight with WBC/IBO/IBF/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Stevens is pushing for a fight with Eubank Jr., but has doubts about the British champion's willingness to take such a fight.

There were weeks of discussions for a fight between Eubank Jr and Golovkin, but they fell apart two weeks when Eubank Jr. missed a deadline to sign the contract- and then Golovkin agreed to defend his titles against IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook on September 10 at the O2 Arena in London.


Stevens fought Golovkin in 2013 and was stopped in the eight round before a New York crowd at the Theater in Madison Square Garden.

He says Eubank Jr. made himself look very bad to boxing public by calling out Golovkin for months and then failing to sign the contract.

"I'm not too sure how big he is. I know he's big over there, but in the United States, he's not too famous," Stevens told Sky Sports. "To start an altercation with Golovkin - it was smart, but for him not to sign the contract and get the fight done was stupid. It was really worthless. You talked a lot of junk, but didn't sign the contract.

"At the end of the day, you're making yourself look bad. People ask the question, 'Why did you call him out? Why did you say you were going to fight him? Now he's fighting Kell Brook. Kell Brook is an excellent fighter. Gennady, Eubank Jr was scared to fight him, no one wants to fight him, so they made that fight happen.

"At the end of the day, this is boxing. Whether he is two weight classes lower, he wasn't scared to take the fight, so he moved up in weight to fight Golovkin. It's obviously a fight that the fans want to see and it will be very exciting to see what happens in the fight, because Kell Brook is slick. This is something that you have to watch and wait to see what happens." 

Because of the danger involved, Stevens has his doubts that Eubank would agree to fight him as well.

"Everyone knows what type of power I possess," said Stevens. "I'm not going to say they're scared, but their conscience is telling them no. They're saying, 'Maybe I could, but if he hits me, he could knock me out'. I'm very high-risk, so they would rather take an easier fight than a high-risk fight in general."

This would make a great main support for GGG v Brook and really get Eubank some exposure and build the Eubank v GGG fight all the more. So doubtless Eubank snr won't make it and will look for some domestic…
