Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan defeated
Antoine Douglas to capture the vacant WBO Intercontinental middleweight title. He took control of the fight after the third round and remained in charge. O'Sullivan landed a relentless amount of shots to send Douglas down and stopped him at 1:03 of the seventh round of a gritty battle, handing
Douglas his second pro loss.
O’Sullivan (27-2, 19 KO) and Douglas (22-2-1, 16 KO) was in a war of power punch exchanges, but there was really no technique at all from either fighter to avoid from getting hit.
