Gennadiy Golovkin reacts to Eubank Jr. calling him out

by Charles Brown: Gennady Golovkin didn’t pay much attention to being called up by middleweight competitor Chris Eubank Jr. this week. Golovkin views her as name-dropping by fighters, and feels she is not worth his time to pay attention to her.

The famous 160-pound IBF Champion Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KOs) describes him as “Cheap,” Maybe he means it’s a way to get the attention of boxing fans and the media.

You can understand why 32-year-old Eubank Jr. (31-2, 23 KOs) called up Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez this week, as he battles domestically tonight against Liam Williams (23-3-1, 18 KOs) at the Motorpoint Arena In Cardiff, Wales.

While the Battle of Eubank Jr. vs.

This is a fight that Kris could have taken years ago, but not at this point in his career. At 32 years old, it is alarming that Eubank Jr. He is still competing against local opposition rather than actual global fighters.

Seven years ago, Eubank Jr. A baffling move by choosing to continue facing the local fodder after defeating Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan in 2015. Instead of going up to face a talented contender, Eubank chose Jr. Fight these guys:

  • Nick Blackwell
  • Tom Doran
  • Reynolds Quinlan
  • Avni Yildirim
  • Arthur Abraham
  • JJ McDonagh
  • James Diggle – At the end of his career
  • Marcus Morrison

This past April, WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade beat Williams, 29, in a one-sided competition from start to finish.

“I stopped caring about people calling me,” Golovkin told Sky Sports in response to Eubank Jr. interest in fighting him.

“It’s the same thing. People claim things; they say they have certain arrangements.” It just looks cheap. It doesn’t deserve my attention at all.

Good knows why Eubank Jr chose to fight Williams with him after losing such a loss, but he shows you where his career is going. Despite some early successes in Eubank Jr’s career, he failed to become the star that some believed.

What brought Eubank Jr. Is some of the bewildering decisions he’s made in terms of focusing primarily on the opposition at a local level, fighting infrequently, and spending a lot of time competing in the 168, a division that lacks the size/strength to compete in.

Eubank Jr. had the opportunity. To fight Golovkin in September 2016, but negotiations broke down when they lasted too long. The opportunity never came to Eubank Jr, and at this point, it looks like it never will.

The 39-year-old holds the IBF middleweight title and is expected to face WBA champion Ryota Morata in the first half of 2022. If Golovkin wins that fight, he could face Canelo Alvarez or Jaime Mongoya.

Eubank Jr would have a chance to fight Golovkin if he was more popular, fought high-ranking opposition and stayed active in his career. Unfortunately, Eubank Jr. failed. Check any of these boxes.

At Eubank Jr. A following in the UK, but he’s not a big name in the US, and most importantly, Eubank Jr hasn’t fought a quality fighter since losing to George Groves in 2018.

“My engine and his fighting style? He doesn’t back down and go to war no matter what,” Eubank Jr. said.

Eubank Jr continued, “I don’t think he can outsmart me or outsmart me.” “I’ve had this mentality for years now. I have the perfect technique to stop Golovkin even though it hasn’t been done before,” Eubank Jr. said.

It is pointless even to think what Eubank Jr. would do. Against Golovkin because he has no chance to fight him. Choose Eubank Jr. His share is through his decision to fight at the British level, so it’s ridiculous for him to talk about wanting to fight GGG or Canelo.
