BOXER Chris Eubank Jr hopes to fight at the Amex stadium in Brighton.

The Hove-born middleweight beat Liam Williams by unanimous decision in Cardiff on February 5.

Billy Joe Saunders, who is one of only two fighters to beat Eubank Jr, has emerged a front-runner to face the 32-year-old next, alongside Kell Brook.

However, Eubank Jr says bringing world champion Gennady Golovkin to Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex stadium would be a dream come true.

“Bringing Golovkin or anyone else to the Amex is not a throwaway comment or fantasy,” he told SunSport.

“It’s a brilliant new stadium with a Premier League football club in a seaside town, and tourist attraction.

“Lots of other fighters have had homecoming fights and it is definitely something I want and have earned.”

Sheffield-born boxer Brook fought at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane in 2017, while Saunders won his second world title at his local Stevenage FC ground in 2019.

“I’ve boxed around the world and never been afraid to go into an opponent’s backyard, so let’s see if anyone is brave enough for this challenge,” Eubank Jr added.

“To be the first boxer to take a show to the Amex would be historic.

“London gets to hold most of the major shows in the south of England so it would be something special.”

According to SunSport, a source at Brighton and Hove Albion said: “We’re always open-minded to staging major events at the Amex, but are constrained by the Premier League season and this coming summer by the women’s Euros.”

Eubank Jr’s father Chris was ringside for the unanimous points win over Welshman Williams.

“He was happy with it, we got the job done. I did what I had to win comfortably,” Eubank Jr said.

“I made a statement and proved I am what I’ve said I am, and that’s a far superior fighter to him.”
