Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan has put pen to paper and agreed terms with Matchroom to fight Chris Eubank Jr.
As expected, the pair will trade leather on the massive Sky pay per view December 12 show topped by Anthony Joshua versus Dillian Whyte.
‘Spike’ had previously agreed to fight the son of British legend Chris Eubank, now known as ‘English’, but turned down the chance upon reviewing the contract and discovering that victory in the scrap he had been calling for, would leave him tied down to Frank Warren Promotions for five fights.
The Cork middleweight, who is currently in America sparring, took to social media this morning to prove he had signed the contract Eubank Jr’s new promoter Matchroom had sent.

The WBA NABA middleweight champion’s promoter Ken Casey of Murphy’s boxing also Tweeted conformation the contract was signed, indicating all was done on ‘Spike’s’ end.
However, considering Matchroom, who promote Eubank Jr, sent the contract there should be no issue on Eubank Jr’s end and the pair will settle their many differences in the ring come December 12.

There has also been rumour that the clash will not just be for Eubank Jr’s WBA interim title, but will double up as a final eliminator for the WBA ‘regular’ strap currently held by Daniel Jacobs, who defends against Peter Quillin in December.
