Brighton’s Chris Eubank Jr. has “lots of options” according to his promoter Kalle Sauerland.

Eubank (33-3, 24 KOs) claimed redemption in a rematch with British rival Liam Smith last September in Manchester with a 10th-round stoppage. 

Eubank had not made it beyond the fourth-round when they first box almost a year ago.

The 33-year-old former world title challenger is ranked within the top three of the WBC and WBA ratings as he goes in search of an elusive world title once again. 

“I’m talking a lot to team Eubank,” Sauerland said. “I spoke to them last night. I’ve got another call with them in the next few days. 

“There are a lot of options. Obviously Janibek [Alimkhanuly] has the WBO title, that’s an interesting fight. There is Kell Brook which is also an interesting fight too. There is Josh Kelly too, which is an interning fight, but that is not one we are currently talking about.”

Eubank has long been linked with Conor Benn, the pairing having a fight fall through due to Benn failing two drug tests. However, Benn now seems set for a run at 147 pounds, two weight classes away from Eubank’s middleweight division. They were scheduled to meet at a catchweight of 157lbs in October 2022.

Eubank and Benn have also been linked with former world champion Brook, who was presumed to be retired following a sixth-round knockout win over long-time foe Amir Khan in February 2022. 

“There are always a lot of options with him,” Sauerland added. “I don’t need to kid any of you by mentioning names that people would think are on the option list as well, but it is all down to what team Eubank wants to do.”
