By Scott Gilfoid: #11 WBA Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan (22-1, 15 KOs) is hoping that WBA interim middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr (19-1, 14 KOs) doesn’t suffer any injuries in his mismatch this Saturday night against 39-year-old #13 WBA challenger Tony Jeter in their fight at the Sheffield Arena in Sheffield, England.
O’Sullivan has a fight scheduled against Eubank Jr on December 12th on the undercard of the heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte. O’Sullivan wants to shut Eubank Jr’s yap by knocking him out and keep him from bragging about himself night and day. It sort of rubs O’Sullivan raw that Eubank Jr has been yapping about wanting to beat Gennady Golovkin and take all of his titles without even having gone through him.
O’Sullivan thinks that Eubank Jr is really getting ahead of himself by assuming that he’s going to beat him in their fight on 12/12.
“If he didn’t have the name Chris Eubank, he wouldn’t be where he is – no chance. If he was called Pat Murphy, he’d be nowhere near where he is now,” O’Sullivan said to skysports.com about Eubank Jr.”Come December 13, all his ambitions will be finished, down the drain. After I knock him out, there’ll be no realistic chance he’ll get Gennady Golovkin any time soon.”
I totally agree with O’Sullivan. Eubank Jr is making a big production about himself when he couldn’t even beat Billy Joe Saunders. That’s no slight on Saunders, but if you can’t even beat him, then how in the heck are you supposed to be able to beat a guy like Golovkin? I mean, if this was a school thin and you failed basis arithmetic, then how are you going to be able to jump into calculus without sinking immediately?
“If he faced Golovkin any time soon, he’d suffer the same fate as he would against me – he’ll get knocked out. I think if he stepped in the ring with either one of us, he 100 per cent gets knocked out for sure,” O’Sullivan said.
We’re going to find out how good Eubank Jr is when he meets up with O’Sullivan on December 12th.
