Eubank Sr: My Son Beats Gennady Golovkin Right Now!

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

CHRIS EUBANK JR hopes he can follow Floyd Mayweather's route to global stardom.

Eubank Jr faces European middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders in a WBO world title eliminator at London's ExCeL on Saturday.

And he has been taking training tips from the best in the business at Mayweather's Las Vegas gym.

Mayweather is the top pound for pound fighter on the planet and unbeaten Eubank, 25, brought his methods back with him after returning home to Brighton.

He said: "I brought back how I saw Mayweather work in his gym in Vegas into my training camp.

"One thing I learned from Mayweather Jr while I was over there was this guy will come into the gym and do a non-stop training session for two hours, no breaks. That is something I've tried to do here.

"Most fighters work for three minutes then break for a minute but I've stopped all that now and can feel the difference.

"One thing he did do though which I'm not going to copy in my training regime is he's drinking Coca-Cola in between.

"I go running on the pebble beaches near my home every week, seven miles. From the gym in Hove to the marina and back along the stones. It's a vicious run but you can't get anything better for strengthening your legs.

"I'm ready for this. I've had six fights this year and I don't come out of the gym in between fights. That is why I'm levels above my opponents because this is my life."

Eubank's dad Chris won world middleweight and super-middleweight titles during the 1990s and reckons his son is even better.

He even believes he is ready to beat world middleweight No.1 Gennady Golovkin.

He said: "So long as he keeps on doing what he's doing. He's got the potential to be something that I've not actually seen and it's exciting.

"It's not often I've been wrong when it comes to boxing so it's something to look forward to. I think this man changes the game. He beats Gennady Golovkin now.

"He is the danger. He has more talent than me."

Unbeaten Saunders, 25, reckons Eubank should consider himself lucky to be facing him.

He said: "There's plenty in line that I believe should have been ahead of him but this is about me getting my world title shot and Eubank is in the way. He doesn't deserve it but through his dad's work he has got a shot.

"He is not Golovkin, he's just got a name off his dad's back. When ever you see him you see his dad stealing the show. Who he has boxed so far is embarrassing and sparring is different to fighting.

"He's going to have to learn the hard way."
