Chris Eubank Jr is looking for a mega world title fight and brutal domestic revenge as boxing comes out of his Covid coma.
Both after dealing with little-known German Sven Elbir at Wembley Arena on October 2.
Eubank has said it is ready to intervene “as soon as possible” against Gennady Golovkin if the middleweight legend’s December fight against Ryota Murata is canceled due to the coronavirus in Tokyo.

Then he’s eager to avenge that early defeat of Billy Joe Saunders. In any case, the motivations differ greatly.
About Golovkin, he says: ‘He is a great champion who has been in my sights for a long time and who I would be proud to fight against.
“He says he wants to fight in England again and that he and I would pack a football stadium.

He has no other options unless Canelo Alvarez wants to fight him again. Which seems doubtful.’
About Saunders he says: ‘That rat deserves a beating from me. That’s what he will get if and when he comes back from stopping against Canelo this summer, the first time he was injured.
“The history of our animosity will fill the Amex Stadium in (Eubank’s hometown) Brighton to see him swallow at me as he did to Canelo.”

Eubank now wants a domestic showdown with Saunders who ‘deserves a beating’ from him
Eubank spoke as his promoters, the German boxing dynasty Sauerland and global marketing agency Wasserman, unfolded their vast roster of British fighters.
Eubank also says he is willing to move up to super middleweight in a bid to take a shocking win over the pound over pound king Canelo, where Saunders failed.
Like his father before him, Junior never doubts himself.
Now, in what Kalle Sauerland describes as ‘his first’, the time for Eubank The Younger to deliver seems at hand.
Eubank v Elbir will be broadcast live on Sky Sports on Saturday 2 October.
