Chris Eubank Jr’s clash against the “most dangerous fighter on the planet”, Gennady Golovkin, will be made this week, according to Eddie Hearn.

Eubank Jr (23-1 KO18) moved a step closer to a showdown with the Kazakhstani knockout specialist by defending his British middleweight title with a commanding fourth round stoppage of Tom Doran at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.

In the aftermath of that victory, Eubank Jr called out the WBA Super, WBC and IBF world champion and has since enjoyed some verbal sparring with his potential opponent over social media.
