Luke Keeler: ‘Put me on Spike-Eubank undercard Eddie’

We have previously written about how Dublin middleweight Luke Keeler [9(5)-1(0)] would be perfect for the massive Carl Frampton-Scott Quigg undercard on February 27th. The Celtic Warriors fighter however has another Sky Sports date in mind first.

The Matchroom starlet is eyeing up the December 12th bill at the O2 in London that is headlined by Anthony Joshua versus Dillian Whyte and also features gym-mate Spike O’Sullivan in a grudge match against Chris Eubank Jr.

Speaking to IFL TV, the 28 year old explained that “I’m hoping to get on Spike’s undercard so please God that gets confirmed soon.”

“That’s the plan please God, but still waiting [for confirmation] I suppose.”

“Hopefully it goes ahead and I get out before Christmas.”

Indeed ‘Cool Hand Luke’ had a message for Matchroom head honcho Eddie Hearn – “Get me on it and get me a decent opponent”
