Chris Eubank Jr. confirms interest in facing Golovkin v Jacobs winner
Chris Eubank Jr. is ready to move back down to middleweight later this year to take on the winner of the Gennady Golovkin v Daniel Jacobs clash.
Golovkin and Jacobs go at it for the unified title at 160 pounds in Madison Square Garden Arena on Saturday night and the Briton has firm eyes on whoever has his hand raised.
Eubank has history with Golovkin as the pair had arranged to meet in September 2016 until a contract dispute saw the fight collapse in late summer.
Kell Brook eventually stepped up from welterweight and lost in five rounds, which has since reignited interest from the Eubank camp.
GGG vs Jacobs tonight should be a good fight. May the best man win & YES I want the winner.
