Chris Eubank Jr has criticised Gennady Golovkin’s decision to overlook him in favour of Kell Brook.

Golovkin had been in negotiations to fight Eubank Jr and a deal appeared imminent until a shock announcement that the Kazakh had signed to face Brook instead.

British champion Eubank Jr has denied that his negotiations thwarted a deal to fight the WBA Super, WBC and IBF world middleweight champion Golovkin.

I’m still ready & waiting to sign. Fighting Brook is a joke.
