CHRIS EUBANK JNR has made no secret of his ambition. In the week before his easy win over Tony Jeter he spoke openly of his desire to fight feared Kazakh Gennady Golovkin. It seems a far-fetched match but his eagerness to tackle the biggest middleweight names persists. Saul Alvarez versus WBC champion Miguel Cotto is the major fight in the weight class. Eubank Jnr sees those fighters in his future.

“I want to fight anybody that’s at the top of my division,” he said. “Any fighter worth his salt is a fighter that wants to fight the best and beat the best. Two great fighters in Canelo and Cotto, it’ll be a great fight, again I wouldn’t like to say who would win that but these are all future fights that I’m definitely looking to get involved in and share the ring with these type of fighters.”

He sees himself getting fights with those big names “within the next year or two”.
