IBO super middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. (28-2-0) named the two guys he wants to share a ring with. The Brit dominated his fellow countryman James DeGale (25-3-1) last month in London and now he’s setting his mind on bigger goals.
The one fight Chris Eubank said he’s craving for is against the super-middleweight WBA champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (51-1-2), but first, the Mexican has to overcome his next opponent – IBF World middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (35-2-0).
“Canelo is the most well-known fighter in the world at the moment and he’s in and around my weight. So that is a fight that so long as everything stays on track, that will be inevitable we will share a ring.”
“I want to be active, I want to fight at least three or four times this year. Now we’re looking for collecting belts, there’s a lot of big names out there. A lot of great fights to be made and this year 2019 is going to be very exciting,” Eubank told No Filter Boxing.
The other fight that catches the attention of the 29-year-old is a rematch with former WBO middleweight champ Billy Joe Saunders (27-0-0). The two met back in 2014 when “Superb” won via SD and handed Eubank his first professional loss.
“A Saunders rematch will always interest me because of our history, but he doesn’t have a belt, if he has a belt it’ll be different. This is why I got into the sport, to be a world champion, to collect the belts, to fight the best and there’s a lot of guys out there that will be great fights for me that have these belts,” Eubank said.
