So, as you’d expect, Eubank Jr is wasting no time in preparing for what will undoubtedly be the biggest test of his boxing career.
However, his training regime isn’t exactly the most orthodox, as he revealed via his official Instagram account today.
Instead of sparring in the gym, Eubank Jr decided to conquer the English countryside this week, with the theme tune for Disney’s The Lion King as a backing track… of course:
Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed via SkySportsNews that Eubank Jr would be squaring off against the “most dangerous fighter on the planet”, when he fights Golovkin.
Hearn also admitted that he expected the Eubanks to walk away from the negotiation table given Golovkin’s undefeated record in 35 fights, however they have stuck to their guns.
He said: “I am waiting for the Eubanks to turn round and say we’re not serious, it’s just for a bit of press and PR. They are deadly serious and we took another major step to that fight now, and I believe this fight will be made this week, I really do.”
