Eubank Jr: Golovkin is NOT Best at 160, I'll Fight Him Tomorrow!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Chris Eubank Jr. is offended that people are calling Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin (35-0, 32KOs) the best middleweight fighter in the sport.

Golovkin, recognized as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport, holds the WBA, IBF, IBO and WBC middleweight world titles.

Eubank Jr. (22-1, 17KOs) will return to the ring on June 25th, when he defends his British title against unbeaten Tom Doran (17-0, 7KOs) on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's defense of the IBF heavyweight championship against Dominic Breazeale at the O2 Arena in London.

The fight with Doran will be the first for Eubank since the tenth round battering of Nick Blackwell, who retired from the sport due to injuries suffered in that fight.

Eubank has been calling for a fall fight with Golovkin. The fighter is not impressed with Golovkin's streak of 22 straight knockouts. Even his own promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, would rather have his client take a few more fights before getting in the ring with Golovkin - but Eubank is mentally set on that contest.

He ordered Hearn to begin negotiations to secure a fight with Golovkin by the end of the year. Golovkin is planning to return to the ring on a date in September and has no issue with traveling over to the UK for the right fight.

"[I'll fight him] right now, tomorrow if possible," Eubank Jr told Sky Sports News HQ. "This guy is considered the best middleweight in the world and for me he doesn't deserve that position. For me, I feel like I have the tools to beat him so let's get it on.

"I really believe I'll be in the ring fighting for a world title towards the end of this year. I need to get a couple more fights, defend the British belt a few times, then jump in there and win myself a [world] title belt."
