Spike O’Sullivan says Chris Eubank Jr.’s father has abandoned him ahead of their WBA World Middleweight title eliminator at The O2 in London on December 12, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Chris Eubank Jr refused to face off with his Dec. 12 opponent, Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan at today’s London presser, claiming his middleweight rival has ‘lost the privilege’ of looking into his eyes.
Eubank, who holds the lightly regarded WBA (interim) 160 lb strap, will face O’Sullivan on the Matchroom Sport ‘Bad Intentions’ bill, in a fight that’s been sanctioned as a final eliminator for the right to face the winner of 2nd tier WBA champ, Danny Jacob’s December fight with Peter Quillin in New York.
WBO 160 lb challenger, Billy Joe Saunders (22-0, 12ko), Marbella bound for camp ahead of his crunch world title challenge to Andy Lee on Dec. 19, has again verbally laid waste to bitter rival Chris Eubank Jr (20-1, 15ko), comparing his former opponent to fake goods sold at Dagenham market!
Eubank last week headlined an absolute shocker of a card from Sheffield, in which he destroyed hopelessly overmatched 39 year old American, Tony Jeter in around four effortless minutes, and while his new handlers at Matchroom have been hyping their signing to the hilt ahead of his December clash with Spike O’Sullivan (22-1, 15ko), Saunders remains completely unconvinced, given he has beaten both men in the past.
WBA Interim titlist, Chris Eubank Jr, has vowed to ‘punish’ Irish middleweight rival, Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan when the two meet on December 12th in London.
Eubank didn’t even get out of first gear last night in Sheffield, where he absolutely destroyed the hopelessly out-gunned and overmatched Tony Jeter inside 2 pathetically one sided rounds – after which the Brighton fighter was greeted by boos from the frustrated Arena crowd.
Chris Eubank Jr has been receiving a lot of media attention this week in the UK, particularly over comments from his father suggesting he beats Gennady Golovkin, yet the Brighton man has finally turned his attention back to reality, issuing a warning to his December opponent, Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan.
Eubank first fights unheralded American, Tony Jeter, on Saturday night in Sheffield -in what should present as nothing but routine business – before moving on to the Irishman on the Anthony Joshua/Dillian Whyte bill in London.
British middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr (19-1, 14ko) and Ireland’s Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan (21-1, 14ko)have re-ignited their public feud through a series of social media exchanges that began when Eubank posted a sarcastic, veiled and somewhat patronising message aimed at O’Sullivan’s team mate Frank Buglioni, who lost his WBA (reg) 168 lb title challenge to Fedor Chudinov in London last night.
Yesterday afternoon the Brighton fighter, who this week signed with British promotional heavyweights Matchroom Sport, tweeted;
