CHRIS EUBANK JR insists he can “exploit weaknesses” in Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and he is the “best opponent in the world” for him.
The Mexican megastar has not decided on an opponent for his next fight as Billy Joe Saunders remains a strong possibility.
But Eubank Jr, 30, has thrown his hat into the ring and claims he would “destroy” the three-weight world champ.
He told Sky Sports: “Canelo Alvarez, that’s the No.1 fight that I want right now.
“I don’t think anyone on the planet would make a better opponent for him.
“Most guys are going in there to run and survive, I’m going in there to destroy. “I know I can beat him, so that’s the fight I want.”
Eubank Jr, who has held WBA interim middleweight title since 2019, continued: “I definitely have got a strategy.
“I see the weaknesses. I see where he can be exposed.
“I’m not looking to survive, I’m taking the fight to him and I don’t think he’s ready for somebody like that.”
After Eubank Jr, who has now linked up with Roy Jones Jr Stateside, tasted victory on his US debut back in December, the star plans to continue boxing across the pond for the foreseeable future.

He said: “I’m with Premier Boxing Champions so it’s most likely that I will fight in the States.
“The top two fighters? Gennadiy Golovkin and ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, two of the biggest names in boxing and they both have middleweight titles.
“Those are the guys I want. Those are the fights that I need at this stage of my career. I don’t want to take backward steps. It’s full steam ahead.”
