'GGG' was in the UK today at a press conference ahead of his upcoming middleweight title defence against Kell Brook from Sheffield.

Chris Eubank Jr Brands Golovkin A ‘Fraud’
Chris Eubank Jr brands Golovkin a ‘fraud’ as the war of words between the two continues following their recent fight fall out.
It was expected that the two would collide in a middleweight showdown this September, but after negotiations fell through it is now IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook who is getting the shot at Golovkin.
But the bitterness that has formed after the failed negotiations is fairly evident for all to see, with Golovkin referring to Eubank Jr recently as being nothing more than a ‘clown’.
Eubank Jr has returned verbal fire via his Instagram page with the following:
“Chriseubankjr@gggboxing vs @specialkellbrook Gennady when your done with the child’s play, I’m ready & waiting to take those belts off you in a REAL fight… Oh & I’m in the same weight class as you so it will be fair #Fraud #SayNoToBullying”
They are certainly fighting words, as they say.
But a fight between the two will have to wait now as Golovkin readies himself for his September 10th date with Brook and Eubank Jr continues to the search for an opponent.
