Sauerland Unveils Eubank Fight Options

Chris Eubank Jr.’s Ring of Possibilities: Sauerland’s Take on Upcoming Fights

In the ever-evolving world of boxing, Brighton’s Chris Eubank Jr. finds himself at a crossroads of opportunities, with his promoter Kalle Sauerland hinting at a potpourri of potential matchups. Eubank, with a record of 33-3 and 24 KOs, recently carved a path of redemption against Liam Smith, sealing a decisive 10th-round stoppage in Manchester. This victory not only avenged his earlier loss to Smith but also propelled him into the upper echelons of the WBC and WBA rankings.


Exploring Future Matchups: Janibek, Brook, and Beyond

“I’m talking a lot to team Eubank,” Sauerland revealed, underscoring the ongoing discussions about Eubank’s next move in the ring. The name of Janibek Alimkhanuly, the current holder of the WBO title, emerges as a tantalizing option. Sauerland also throws Kell Brook into the mix, a name that resonates with intrigue and possibility in the boxing community. Josh Kelly’s name surfaces as well, although he appears to be a less immediate consideration.


Navigating Weight Classes and Potential Showdowns

The landscape of boxing, ever-shifting and unpredictable, has seen Eubank linked with Conor Benn in a highly anticipated fight that crumbled under the weight of Benn’s drug test failures. Benn, now eyeing a venture into the 147-pound division, drifts away from Eubank’s middleweight domain. They were once on course for a catchweight showdown at 157lbs, a bout steeped in expectation and excitement.

Brook: A Wild Card in the Eubank Equation

Eubank and Benn’s narrative intertwines with former world champion Kell Brook, a figure many assumed had hung up his gloves after a triumphant knockout win over Amir Khan. Yet, in the unpredictable theatre of boxing, retirements can be as fluid as the bouts themselves, and Brook’s name lingers in the air as a potential adversary for Eubank.


“There are always a lot of options with him,” Sauerland concludes, acknowledging the vast array of choices at Eubank’s disposal. The final decision rests with Team Eubank, as they chart a course through the choppy waters of boxing’s elite class.
