Mayo Set For Blockbuster Card While Hogan Closes In On World Title Fight

Mayo Set For Blockbuster Card While Hogan Closes In On World Title Fight

Cork boxer Gary 'Spike' O'Sullivan will fight in Castlebar on 7 December, the same card that sees Mayo man Ray Moylette challenge for the WBC International title.

Former Amateur World & European Gold Medalist Ray Moylette is set to contest ten rounds in his hometown. The explosive power puncher has a perfect record of 11-0 and will challenge Mexican Christian Uruzquieta in his toughest test yet.

O'Sullivan last boxed on the undercard of Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez in September but got caught with a brutal shot by David Lemieux which resulted in a first round KO.

Elsewhere, Australian based Kildare man Dennis Hogan moved closer to a contest with WBO World champion Jaime Munguia after he was named mandatory challenger this week.

All that is left is to overcome Welsh boxer Jamie Weetch (12-2) at Brisbane’s Convention this December before setting course for a title fight.

In an interview with Balls.ie earlier this year, Hogan outlined that a World Title was his sole goal:

I’m just going to work towards it and do whatever it takes. That vision is in my mind every day, I see myself winning it again and again. I know how it feels, I know where it’s going to be. I hear the bell ringing, I’ve got it all in my mind and it makes me feel inspired, motivated.
