Gennady Golovkin claims he has signed his side and the deal and is now waiting on Eubank Jr. to put pen to paper.
The WBC, IBF and WBA world champion is prepared to travel to the UK to put his titles on the line against the brash Englishman, but claims Eubank Jr. has yet to sign on the dotted line. Golovkin tweeted earlier:
Eubank Jr. declared his interest in fighting the hard-hitting Kazakh after dispatching Tom Doran in ruthless fashion a couple weeks ago.
Both teams seem very eager for the fight to happen and promoter Eddie Hearn and Tom Loeffler have been working on trying to get the fight across the line. If both fighters manage to agree terms and get the fight signed, sealed and delivered, then it is likely it will take place in England in September or October at the O2 Arena, London.
However, if negotiations do break down for whatever reason, Glolovkin’s manager said in a recent interview with boxingscene.com, “If we don’t get a contract from Eubank Jr, we will begin to promote our own show in the United States on September 10.”by
