Chris Eubank Jr targets Gennady Golovkin fight

Chris Eubank Jr wants to fight Gennady Golovkin.

The fighter returns to boxing with a clash against Marcus Morrison this weekend and has now set his sights on a bout against the middleweight world champion and thinks he could inflict a rare defeat on Golovkin.

Eubank Jr told Sky Sports: "I'm a middleweight right now. At the moment there are a lot of middleweight world champions that I'm coming for this year.

"But there are a lot of names including GGG. That's a fight that needs to happen this year, it has to happen.

"He has a world title, the fans have been asking for the fight for years, it slipped through my fingers.

"I'm in a position now, fighting in England, where I can put it good performances and we can make the fight at the end of the year.

"That would be the dream, to fight in the UK. Obviously he fights in the States and it comes down to business.

"My main focus is just fighting him and getting that world title."

Eubank Jr was previously in talks to fight Golovkin in 2016 but a deal never came together but he believes he has the ability to "out-punch" the Kazakh.

He said: "I really and truly believe I would stop him.

"My engine and his fight style? He doesn't back down and goes to war regardless.

"An immovable force against an unstoppable object. When two warriors collide who put it all on the line, it would be an amazing fight.

"I don't believe he could out-punch or out-perform me."
