Following a year-long hiatus from the ring, ‘Next Gen’ will return to action soon. He has signed a new deal with the German promotional brand Sauerland, and is eyeing some big steps ahead. While the entire middleweight division is stacked, Eubank Jr desires to further intensify the tale.

According to Boxing News 24, ‘Next Gen’ has delivered his opinion on the whole scenario. Eubank Jr. said, “I am ready to takeover the Middleweight division. I want all the champions- Murata, Charlo, Andrade, Golovkin, put me in the ring with any of them.”

Given the fact that he named Ryota Murata (WBA champion), Jermall Charlo (WBC champion), Gennady Golovkin (IBF & IBO champion), and Demetrius Andrade (WBO champion), it seems Eubank Jr. is on a mission as he is ready to capture the whole middleweight division.

It might not be a simple task, but the 31-year-old looks optimistic about reaching the goal. He added, “I only want to fight the best. This is my time, If you have a belt, I’m coming for you.”

Who can welcome Chris Eubank Jr. into the ring

Looking at the ongoing scenario, Jermall Charlo can be a legitimate option for Eubank Jr. The two couldn’t face each other during their time in the PBC. Although Charlo is still with Haymon, Eubank Jr has left.

Meanwhile, Eddie Hearn is considering lining up Demetrius Andrade against Gennady Golovkin. So, Eubank Jr. can face either Charlo or Murata to revive himself in the current middleweight talks. He has been inactive for a long time and needs an immediate return at this stage. Given his status as interim champion, a bout against Murata looks likely.
