‘It’s a simple questions are you going to fight me yes or no?’
Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan [30(21)-4(3)] has told WBO light middleweight world champion Patrick Teixeira [31(22)-1(1)] to confirm whether or not he will put his world title on the line against the Cork man.
The Mahon light middle has become a genuine contender to face the Brazilian in recent months.
His coach and manager Pascal Collins revealed talks have taken place and considering both are Golden Boy affiliated the bout looks easy to make.
Initial plans had Teixeira fighting Argentine Brian Castanho in April and Cork’s O’Sullivan trading leather on the Canelo Alvarez Billy Joe Saunders May 2 undercard in a world title eliminator.
However, the Celtic Warrior Gym fighter and former Irish middleweight champion could now go directly into a world title fight.
There has been rumour of a July 4 showdown, but ‘Spike’ seems to be getting a bit impatient and took to Twitter to hit out at his potential rival.
The 35-year-old wants to know one way or the other if the duo are going to fight.
Replying to suggestions by the Brazilian that he ‘talks too much’, Spike called for a definite answer to his call out.
‘Why are you being a bitch Patrick, you don’t like to talk? Your the one that said you’d end my career! It’s a simple question are you going to fight me yes or no?”
The tweet in itself suggests not much progress has been made in terms of getting a deal done.
However, Murphys Boxing O’Sullivan has been given big fight assurances by Golden Boy and is confident he is at the very least just one win away from a world title fight.
