Eubank Sr: Golovkin is Missing The DNA, Has Nothing on My Son!

By George Mills, courtesy of The Daily Star

BOXING fans have turned on the Eubank family after father Chris made an astonishing claim about his son’s chances in a fight against IBF, IBO, WBC, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Chris Eubank Snr joined his son, Eubank Jr, on talkSPORT’s Sports Breakfast yesterday morning while on the promotional trail for Jr’s IBO world title fight against Renold Quinlan next month.

But it appears the family are already looking past the Australian champion, with their sights set on much more high-profile targets such as unbeaten Kazakh middleweight Gennady Golovkin.

And both father and son made a series of provocative claims about the 34-year-old that angered many in the boxing community.

“When you’re speaking of fighters like Gennady Golokvin, these knockout artists that everybody rates and says are the best – in my opinion he’s slow," Eubank Jr said.

“For every one punch he would throw at me, I’m gonna throw five, six, seven punches. I know I have a chin, I know I can take a shot. So if he’s not gonna knock me out, he’s not gonna beat me.”

And his father doubled down on the stunning proclamation in predictably flamboyant fashion.

“Golovkin would get wrecked,” Eubank Snr began. “But the world I live in is crazy, people say I’m crazy. Well of course I am, you have to be. You can’t make world champion if you’re not crazy.

“The sense that I see is that he wrecks Golovkin. He doesn’t have anything on Junior. Nothing. He doesn’t have the speed, he doesn’t have the power, he doesn’t have the DNA.”

The bizarre claims left many questioning the Eubanks’ legacy in the sport.

Eubank Jnr’s fight against Quinlan has been widely criticised in the boxing community after it was announced the bout would be broadcast on ITV’s new pay-per-view service.

Quinlan, 27, is a relative unknown in the boxing world with only 12 professional fights to his name, leading many to suggest he is unworthy of PPV coverage.

Eubanks must call nelo out first. Stop bullying ggg. I want to hear nelos response. Eubanks v ggg is boring at this point. The talk is always about missing pen. Want a different topic to discuss now.

[QUOTE=alexguiness;17345661]Well Eubank Jnr beat Tom Doran, so maybe you are correct...when he beats Reynold Quinlan maybe you should nominate him for the HOF.[/QUOTE] Not yet, but he's HOF material.
