Spike: Once I knock out Eubank GGG won’t be able to avoid me anymore

Spike O’Sullivan has all but dared Chris Eubank Jr into fighting him, but despite finally securing the grudge match he has been screaming for over the last two years the Cork man already has bigger things in mind.

Defeating Eubank Jr live on a Sky pay per view show in London on December 12 would kick open doors for the Murphy’s Boxing 160 lbs fighter as well as raise his domestic and European profile no end.

However, ‘Spike’ wants to be a World renowned middleweight and claims once the son of former Steve Collins foe and British boxing legend Chris Eubank is knocked out he wants destructive puncher and IBF title holder Gennady Golovkin.

“After I finish off Eubanks, I’ll be the No. 1 contender in the WBA and Golovkin can’t hold me off any longer,” Spike said ahead of his Ocotber 10 Lowell bout.

He might have the great ‘GGG’ in his sights, but even before Eubank, O’Sullivan has to overcome the challenge of David Toribio on a PBC card on Saturday.

The Pascal Collins trained middle is hoping to get some rounds under his belt, but fears when he lands on a fighter with a similar KO percentage he could have an early night.

“I watched a few clips of my opponent.  We have identical records.  We both knock people out, so I have to be careful.  I’d like to get in a few rounds, but when I hit people, they fall,” he added before discussing his return to America.

“Boston is my second home.  I love it here.  The people are so nice and there are good gyms. I’m an exciting, entertaining fighter who always comes to fight.”
