Spike O’Sullivan launches tirade against disrespectful Chris Eubank Jr.


Everyone knows that Cork’s Gary O’Sullivan doesn’t like Chris Eubank Jr., and the pair’s long running war of words was reignited at the weekend.

O’Sullivan was in London to support his Celtic Warriors team mate Frank Buglioni who was challenging for Fedor Chudinov’s WBA middleweight title, and the Leesider took umbrage with a disrespectful tweet from Eubank Jr. aimed at Buglioni.

Safe to say, O’Sullivan isn’t one to keep quiet, and the 31 year old let the Englishman know all about what he thought of the thinly-veiled insult

Spike followed this tweet up with a challenge to the English star who is now trained by Adam Booth and has recently signed up with Matchroom.

Spike who is well known to Sky Sports viewers after his knockout wins over Anthony Fitzgerald and Melvin Betancourt, may now, finally, be close to the Eubank Jr. fight he has long craved.
