Boxing: Spike VS Quigley
‘Spike looking to keep momentum going Stateside’.
Next up for Cork’s Spike O’ Sullivan is a bout against Liverpudlian Nick Quigley in the House of Blues in Boston on 30th September.
Spike goes into this one on the back of three wins and will be familiar with the setting for this one as Boston has become a happy hunting ground for the hard hitter in the past.
Spike’s record to date stands at 15 wins and 2 defeats with the losses coming against BJ Saunders and most recently Chris Eubank Jr. in 2015, both current world champions.
Spike will be looking to show off his explosive power to an American audience as the fight will be televised on ESPN.
In his last fight against Chauncy Fields, Spike looked very impressive ending the fight in the second round with an unmerciful left hook to the body.
Spike is certainly one of the hardest hitting fighters in his weight class now and will look to end tomorrow night’s fight inside the distance and barring an upset, that’s the most likely outcome.
Tomorrow night’s opponent has just two losses on his record but hasn’t fought no way near the pedigree of fighter that Spike has. Looking beyond Quigley, Spike will be aiming to climb the ladder to set up a shot at a title, maybe a rematch against Saunders or Eubank Jr.
In all probability, he will likely need to fight again a couple of time before that happens.
One fight all of us here at Cork City’s Unity Media Network would love to see is a bout next summer in Pairc Ui Chaoimh against Limerick man Andy Lee. Two of the hardest punchers in the middleweight division would most definitely sell tickets going up against each other in the Battle of Munster would definitely sell tickets and create a lot of hype.
We live in hope.
Best of luck Spike!
