Rising Middleweight contender Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (19-1-0, 12 KOs) has been exceedingly active since signing with Massachusetts promoter Murphy’s Boxing back in February.
Similar to the blue-collar workers the Dropkick Murphy’s sing about in their songs, O’Sullivan’s came to this country looking for work and with no other intentions than to fight as often as possible.

O’Sullivan told Cathal Jennings in an interview last month.
He kicked off his campaign under the Murphy’s banner on February 26 with an impressive second round knockout win over Larry Smith in the first ever Murphy’s Boxing “Memorial Series” event from Memorial Hall in Melrose, MA.
All proceeds from the “Memorial Series” benefit The Claddagh Fund on behalf of “The Mass Fallen Heroes Memorial”.
O’Sullivan is already scheduled to fight again on March 14 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Dibella Entertainments “McMayhem in Midtown” card.
He’ll fight Columbian Milton Nunez (28-12-0, 25 KOs) who’s known for his knockout power and who’s been in the ring with a list of tough fighters including Matt Korobov, Daniel Jacobs, Sergio Mora, and current Middleweight kingpin Gennady Golovkin.
The second “Memorial Series” event has already been scheduled for April 10, once again at Memorial Hall in Melrose, Ma, and O’Sullivan will be fighting in the co-main event.
Welterweight contender and recent Al Haymon signee Danny “Bhoy” O’Connor will fight in the main event.
If O’Sullivan can continue to keep busy while winning in impressive and entertaining fashion, there’s no doubt he could find himself in a fight with one of the top names in the Middleweight division.
Maybe even someday against Golovkin himself, who O’Sullivan said he would love to fight at the Boston Garden.
