Clearing up the confusion over Spike O'Sullivan's two fights in two nights

Gary O'Sullivan likes to keep active but this would have been too much even by his standards.

Having fought twice already this year and four times last year, 'Spike' had to answer several fans' questions after it was announced that he was set to fight two nights in a row.

The Cork boxer was recently confirmed as the co-feature bout on Ray Moylette's homecoming fight in Mayo on December 7 in a massive event for Assassin Promotions.

It was revealed that 'Spike' would be returning at light-middleweight in the hope of rebounding from his defeat to David Lemieux in September.

Eyebrows were raised this week, however, when Matchroom Boxing announced that 'Spike' had been booked to compete on the undercard of Kell Brook's upcoming clash with Michael Zerafa, which will take place on December 8 in Sheffield.

SportsJOE reached out to O'Sullivan on Tuesday and he confirmed that he is indeed still fighting in Castlebar that weekend but not in Sheffield.

'Spike' remains one of the most popular Irish fighters but he can only be stretched so thin and Matchroom might want to update their future social media posts to exclude the Mahon fighter.

It will be interesting to see how O'Sullivan fares in his attempt to return to 154lbs, while an opponent has yet to be confirmed for the Corkman, who hasn't fought in Ireland in over four years.
