CHRIS EUBANK JR wants to put Brighton’s Amex Stadium on the boxing map.
Middle class born by Hove beat Liam Williams in Cardiff and there are a lot of potential wars right now.
The one who went before is the old enemy Billy Joe Saunderswho proudly won his second world title at his local Stevenage FC in 2019.
Sheffield star Kell Brookanother possible rival, realized a childhood dream when he hit the box at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane in 2017.
The champion of the world Gennady Golovkin is the ideal opponent and Eubank Jr, 32, says his star appeal means the attention of the Seagulls – who have surpassed their weight in the Premier League – is a serious subject.
He told SunSport: “Bringing Golovkin or anyone else to Amex is not a comment or a fantasy.
“It’s a brilliant new stadium with a Premier League football club in a seaside town and a tourist attraction.
“A lot of other fighters have had fights at home and that is definitely what I wanted and earned.

“I’ve boxed all over the world and have never been afraid to go into an opponent’s backyard, so let’s see if anyone is brave enough for this challenge.
“Becoming the first boxer to have a show at Amex would be history.
“London will be hosting most of the big shows in the south of England, so it’s going to be something special.”
A SunSport source in Brighton said: “We have always been open to hosting major events at Amex, but are constrained by the Premier League season and the upcoming summer by the Women’s Euros.”
Eubank JrThe father of the British boxing legend, Chris, started for the unanimous points in his win over Welsh Williams eight days ago.
And Eubank Jr said: “He was pleased with that, we got the job done. I did what I had to win comfortably.
“I have claimed and proven that I am what I said I am, and that is a far superior fighter than he is.”
