SPIKE O’SULLIVAN (22-1 15KOs) TO FACE CHRIS EUBANK JR (20-1 15KOs) DECEMBER 12TH 2015 AT THE O2 AREN
Murphys Boxing is proud to announce that Spike O’Sullivan (22-1 15KOs) has signed to fight Chris Eubank Jr (20-1 15KOs), on December 12th at the O2 Arena in London, England. The fight will take place on the Anthony Joshua versus Dillian Whyte mega fight card and will be the WBA middleweight title eliminator, with the winner facing either WBA champion Danny Jacobs or Peter Quillin, who face off a week earlier on December 5th in Brooklyn, New York.
Spike, after years of doggedly chasing Eubank Jr, finally has the fight he has been looking for and he is primed to capitalize on it. Spike enters the ring on a roll of 5 straight KO wins. 2015 has been quite a year for Spike, he has fought 4 times, all in the U.S. and among others has a KO win at the mecca of boxing, Madison Square Garden in March, as well as KO wins on two separate PBC, Murphys Boxing promoted televised cards, in May and most recently on October 10th where he destroyed veteran David Toribio with a devastating 2nd round KO. Spike has also been sparring with former undisputed middleweight champion Jermain Taylor and comes into the fight with Eubank, supremely confidant.
The Spike versus Eubank Jr. fight is shaping up to be one of the most talked about fights in England in recent memory. With a true disdain for each other, both men will enter the ring with bad intentions. With a war of words well under way on social media, the fight only looks to intensify as the lead up continues. For his part, Spike doesn’t like Eubank, branding him arrogant and living off his fathers name. That father would be Chris Eubank Sr. the former WBO super middleweight champion, who in an ironic twist lost his title and two fights to the Celtic Warrior, Steve Collins who just happens to be the brother of Spike’s trainer Packie Collins.
Spike, the Cork, Ireland middleweight knows that Eubank Jr. is the one man standing in his way of a title shot and is fully focused on taking care of business on December 12th. “I can’t wait to get in the ring and knock Eubank out” said O’Sullivan. “With this fight being made a WBA eliminator, I will be world champion in 2016” added O’Sullivan.
THE SPIKE O’SULLIVAN VERSUS CHRIS EUBANK JR FIGHT IS PROMOTED BY MATCHROOM BOXING IN ASSOCIATION WITH MURPHYS BOXING AND WILL BE PART OF THE ANTHONY JOSHUA VERSUS DILLIAN WHYTE MEGA FIGHT CARD.
