In his last fight back in December, on the under-card of the Billy Joe Saunders Vs. David Lemieux fight, Ireland’s Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan picked up a most impressive win of his own. Stopping Antoine Douglas in the seventh round of a good fight, O’Sullivan set himself up for a bigger fight.
The fighting Irish illustrated the meaning behind the famous moniker tonight as Irishman Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (26-2, 18 KOs) battled Englishman Nick Quigley (15-3, 3 KOs) to a fourth-round technical knockout victory in the televised main event on Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN.

O’Sullivan and Quigley both came out swinging from the first bell and went toe-to-toe, with each fighter bloodied from the action. O’Sullivan received a cut as the two middleweights fought for dominance. Ultimately, the referee took note of Quigley’s decreased ability to stand solidly on his feet after a big right was landed by O’Sullivan and waved off the fight in the fourth round.
Middleweight contender Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (25-2, 17 KOs) will headline Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN when it lands in Boston for the first time for a scheduled 10-round middleweight fight against the rugged Nick Quigley (15-2, 3 KOs) at the legendary House of Blues.
