World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim Middleweight Champion Chris Eubank Jr. hopes to return to the ring soon. The Briton boxer is one of the strongest fighters in the 160-pound division and knows exactly who he wants to fight, as he detailed in an interview with Badlefthook.

Eubank explained that he wants the big names and that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Ryota Murata are his first choices.

“I am WBA Interim world champion, so those are the fights that make sense. I want those belts, all these guys with belts in my division”, he said in the interview.

The 31-year-old fighter beat Mary Korobov last December and won the pioneer organization’s Interim belt. Now, he wants bigger challenges and bigger fights at 160 pounds.
