British middleweight star Anthony Ogogo hopes to land a shot at Chris Eubank Jr. once feared pound for pound star Gennady Golovkin has taken the British champion down a peg.

Eubank is close to sealing a seven-figure deal to challenge Golovkin in September, potentially in London, and Ogogo sees only one result should the fight go ahead – a win for the Kazakh puncher.

Once the dust settles, ex-Olympic medallist Ogogo hopes to oppose Eubank in an all-UK encounter and is certain he can add another defeat to the second generation fighter’s record.

“I’ve seen many chinks in Eubank Jr’s armour. I’ve seen them and I can exploit them. Being able to do that comes with experience. He’s been a professional for longer than me and I’ve only had 10 fights. When I’m ready, I’ll be ready,” Ogogo told Sky Sports.

“There’s talk of Eubank Jr fighting Golovkin. When he gets bashed up by him, hopefully he’s going to come back down and rebuild at domestic level. I see myself being a king at domestic level in a short space of time so hopefully that’ll be a big fight.

“When I do end up fighting Eubank Jr and those guys, it’ll be a great spectacle. Everyone will have an opinion, everyone will have their say and hopefully it’ll be a pay-per-view event at The O2 or at a football stadium. It’ll be a great night for British boxing.”

Ogogo looked impressive when stopping Frane Radnic in a round on Saturday night at The O2 and could land himself a mandatory shot at the British title if he keeps up his winning form.
