Kell Brook: Chris Eubank

Kell Brook: Chris Eubank Sr Ruining His Son’s Life

Kell Brook’s preparations are now in full swing ahead of the biggest challenge of his boxing career when he takes on the much feared ‘GGG’ in London on September 1oth.

As many fans know, the fight was initially set to be between Gennady Golovkin and Chris Eubank Jr but alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

Speaking to Kugan Cassius of IFL TV, IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook gave his opinion on why talks broke down and how he got the opportunity – and what he really thinks of Chris Eubank senior:

“I think his dad is an idiot. I think his dad’s a joker. I can’t take him serious. What he did for the sport were unbelievable but I’m not liking him as a person how he’s going off. He’s ruining his son’s life, I don’t know who he thinks he is. He’s ruining the kid’s life.”

He added:

“They had the same contract. Look how fast I agreed to the fight and I’m a world champion unbeaten, never been close to been beat. I signed the contract in quick time, he were messing about, dragging his feet, messing. He messed it up for his son, so I’m going to show him what’s what in this fight and take the titles of triple G.”

Chris Eubank Sr has not been vocal on social media in recent days since it was announced that his son would not fight Golokvin and it will be interesting to see who indeed will be next for Chris Eubank Jr.
