O’Sullivan to fight former Alcine and Russ opponent in America
FORMER Irish and WBO International middleweight champion Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan will fight Jose Medina in Boston on June 5.
The Cork native has signed with Murphy USA Boxing and will fight the Mexican in the House of Blues, a venue that hosted John Joe Nevin’s debut and Jamie Kavanagh’s last bout, in the Summer.
‘The Stinger’ Medina is a 33 fight veteran and has shared the ring with Matthew Hatton, Lamar Russ and Joachim Alcine-who he drew with.
O’Sullivan, whose sole career reverse came at the gloves of Billy Joe Saunders, hopes to forge out a following in the States and open a pathway to a world title fight with WBO belt holder Peter ‘Kid Chocolate’ Quillin.
