Eubank Jr. Wants Canelo In The UK – ‘Can’t Think Of Any Bigger Money Fights’

Chris Eubank Jr. is targeting a mega fight with Canelo Alvarez.

Eubank revived his career after stopping Liam Smith in round ten when there were serious question marks over his future. As a result, Eubank began to call out the big names, including Gennady Golovkin. And now Alvarez joins his hit list as Eubank wants a huge fight in the UK. Canelo, at the age of 33, still has plenty of miles left on the block. And given that he has not fought in the UK, a fight with Eubank could make sense from a financial point of view. And yet, Alvarez’s pulling power will earn him a big payday regardless of who he faces. As such, the failure of Eubank to have any belts may detract Canelo from making the fight. But that did not stop Eubank Jr. from wanting the bout.

“Canelo goes where the money is and I can’t think of any bigger money fights than me versus Canelo. I know he wants to fight in the UK, it’s a huge market. There’s not many guys there that people would like to see fight more than me and Alvarez.

“But, you know, he’s one of them guys, he really does make the rules. He does what he wants, he moves up in weight, he comes down in weight, he holds belts in different weight divisions and he does all these things that other fighters could just never do. So it’s hard to kind of target him,” Eubank

Ultimately, Canelo has earned the right to choose who he faces. But if he does desire a fight in the UK, then Eubank Jr. may fit that bill. But in reality, fights against David Benavidez, David Morrell Jr. and a Dmitry Bivol rematch appear more pressing from a fan base’s point of view.
