Chris Eubank Jr has criticised Gennady Golovkin’s decision to overlook him in favour of Kell Brook.
Golovkin had been in negotiations to fight Eubank Jr and a deal appeared imminent until a shock announcement that the Kazakh had signed to face Brook instead.
British champion Eubank Jr has denied that his negotiations thwarted a deal to fight the WBA Super, WBC and IBF world middleweight champion Golovkin.
I'm still ready & waiting to sign. Fighting Brook is a joke.

"I haven't been shown one contract since my fight with GGG was announced," he announced on social media on Friday.
"I'm still ready & waiting to sign. Fighting Brook is a joke #2Small."
IBF welterweight champion Brook will jump two weight divisions to challenge for Golovkin's 160lbs titles on September 10 at The O2 Arena, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
