Eubank signs with Team Sauerland, immediately calls for Golovkin
With the news breaking that Team Sauerland have announced the former two time world super middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr, to their stable of fighters - the WBA interim Middleweight champion has wasted little time in calling out the names he'd like to step in with. Eubank Jr (29-2) is currently ranked as the sixth best middleweight fighter by the Ring Magazine, having not fought since December 2019 when he won WBA interim Middleweight championship, beating Matvey Korobov by technical knockout in the second round of the contest.

A high profile fighter, Chris readily admits that big fights have slipped through his fingers in the past, but is now determined to put that right.
The hitlist is a simple one - anyone with a belt in that division alone, unless your name is Canelo Alvarez. Striking out a Billy Joe Saunders rematch for now, with Jr claiming his long term foe has been avoiding him. With the line being drawn under that particular rivalry for now, attention is turned to the bustling division and those that do have titles. Though Golovkin may be the big name, Ryota Murata is the other fighter holding a WBA belt, the full title, another one Eubank is after.
Eubank made his professional debut in November 2011, and in his nine year career has lost to both George Groves and Billy Joe Saunders, but he holds high profile wins over James Degale and Arthur Abraham. With Covid-19 ruining many elite sports in 2020, many fighters will be looking at resurrecting their careers in 2021, and in the periods of lockdowns, Eubank Jr has worked hard in the gym learning new techniques and homing his craft being guided by Roy Jones Jr.
Speaking with Matty Mainwaring, Eubank details his plans for 2021.
