Bellow the belt – Spike O’Sullivan says Jaime Munguia should have been disqualified when they fought

Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan [30(21)-4(3)] claims he would have secured a DQ win over Jaime Munguia [35(28)-0] had they not fought in San Antonio Texas.

The Cork light middleweight world title hopeful returned to middleweight to fight the Mexican in January of this year.

The Murphys Boxing and Golden Boy puncher was stopped in the penultimate round of the high profile clash, Munguia’s debut at 160lbs.

However, the Mahon man argues continuous low blows, inflicted on him by the former WBO light middleweight world champion, hampered him significantly.

Indeed, such was the volume of below the belt shots, argues ‘Spike’, that Munguia should have been disqualified.

Speaking on Twitter O’Sullivan said: “Munguia would have never beaten me if we weren’t in his back yard and referee Mark Calo-oy had the balls to have disqualified Munguia. He repeatedly gave me low blows and would have 100% certainly have been disqualified if it was contested elsewhere.”

Munguia, who holds an extremely controversial win over Dennis Hogan, is back in the news as he faces Tureano Johnson on Friday at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.

Johnson, who holds wins over Eamonn O’Kane and Jason Quigley, has used the fact O’Sullivan is now campaigning at light middle to argue Munguia hasn’t fought a true middleweight, hence the Celtic Warrior Gym fighters reaction.
