Golovkin: I'm Waiting on Eubank Jr, He Lost His Pen!

By Gregory Stangrit

IBO/WBA/IBF/WBC middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin (35-0, 32KOs) is getting impatient with British middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. (24-1, 18KOs), who hasn't signed the contract for a proposed fight in the fall.

Eubank's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, has been trying to work out a deal with his boxer and his father/trainer Chris Eubank Sr. for several weeks. The fight would take place in the UK, with the O2 Arena in London being a possibility.

Eubank Jr. has been calling out Golovkin for several months and making demands to his promoter to finalize a deal. 


But now the moment of truth is here and the contract has not been signed by Eubank.

Golovkin took to the social networks to apply pressure on the British fighter.

"Everything agreed from our side, now waiting for Chris Eubank Jr., who all of a sudden has lost his pen," Golovkin stated to his followers.

Eubank successfully defended his British middleweight title for the first time on June 25th, with a fourth-round stoppage of the previously unbeaten Tom Doran. Golovkin was in action back in April when he blew out IBF mandatory challenger Dominic Wade in two easy rounds at The Forum in Los Angeles, California.

In an earlier story on, Golovkin's manager, Oleg Hermann, expressed similar frustrations with the recent conduct of Eubank Jr.

"We have a very interesting situation with Eubank Jr. We've negotiated with Eddie Hearn for several weeks and we agreed on all of the terms. As the negotiations were ongoing, Eubank Jr. spoke to the media and demanded that a contract to be signed," Hermann said. 

"Eubank Sr. said that Sky Sports may prevent the fight from happening. As we know, Hearn and Eubank Sr. had a meeting with Sky Sports and they solved this problem - but it was 10 days ago. It’s time to find out whether Eubank Sr. and Eubank Jr. are only able to talk or are they are able to back up their words by singing the contract. If we don’t get a contract from Eubank Jr. - we will begin to promote our own show in the United States. We have a date on HBO — September 10th."

It's okay, I think GGG-Saunders would be a closer fight anyways, personally.
