Spike O'Sullivan: I Wasn't Good Enough To Take Munguia Down

Former WBO junior middleweight champion Jaime Munguia (35-0, 28 KOs) made a successful 160-pound debut by defeating Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan (30-4, 21 KOs) via 11th-round stoppage to capture the WBO Intercontinental middleweight title at The Alamodome in San Antonio, TX. The event was streamed live exclusively on DAZN. 
 
"I feel disappointed," said O'Sullivan in the aftermath of his disappointing defeat.

"I was hoping I could win, but I guess I wasn't good enough to take him down. I just want to go home, spend time with my family and rest. I've been away for too long and I think it's time for me to go and enjoy some time with them. I have made a great sacrifice for this fight, but it's OK."

Spike is a fighter. He got paid $400k i believe? Earned every dime.

Hey, Spike, we all knew this going into the fight. If you were good enough you wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to fight him.

O'Sullivan was weakened by multiple low blows from munguia otherwise he would of won the fight

A cherry picked tough journeyman made to order for Munguia and still turned out to be a handful. At this rate Munguia may be stuck fighting human punching bags to keep the 0 safe for the Canelo payday.
