As previously reported, GB Boxing have rejected an approach by Chris Eubank Snr regarding a place for his son on the team for Rio 2016, according to a statement from the British amateur governing body.
Eubank made the move on behalf of the reigning British middleweight champion following confirmation by world governing body AIBA that professionals will be allowed at the Olympics.
Antony Fowler has already qualified for the Games at 75kg meaning Eubank's only chance would be to go as a light-welterweight or welterweight, which would almost certainly be beyond him.
While GB Boxing have not entirely dismissed the prospect of picking a professional for a future Olympics, sources have confirmed it would be highly unlikely for Rio at this late stage.
A GB Boxing spokesman said: "We explained that the qualification process for Rio 2016 has been going on for several months and that Great Britain has already qualified a boxer in the middleweight (75kg) category, Antony Fowler, and that he will represent Team GB in that weight class at the Olympic Games this summer."
Now Eubank Snr. is targeting a September showdown between his son and IBO/WBA/WBC/IBF middleweight champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin (35-0, 32KOs).
According to Eubank Sr., the fight is not just a possibility - he expects it to happen in the fall. Eubank's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, is in talks with Ton Loeffler K2 Promotions to make the Golovkin fight.
"It’s now (about) moving up (a level),' Eubank Snr said. "Junior’s now looking to actually take on the best fighter in the world in Gennady Golovkin and that fight will happen around September."
Eubank (22-1, 17KOs) is first scheduled to make a defense of his British belt against unbeaten Tom Doran on June 25th, as part of the undercard to Anthony Joshua vs. Dominic Breazeale at the O2 Arena in London.
