O’Sullivan Doesn’t Fear Lemieux’s Power
While Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez will be the headlining fight on September 15th, both Spike O’Sullivan and David Lemieux have been throwing a significant amount of shade leading to their undercard clash.
“I don’t fear his power,” the Irish fighter told Sirius-XM hosts Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney.
“I’ve been hit by heavier guys in the gym. Billy Joe Saunders actually recommended sparring partners that I’ve used for this fight. He doesn’t like Lemieux because Lemieux came up with crap excuses saying that he had an injury and that’s why BJS beat him. He was just making up excuses and BJS didn’t like that from Lemieux. He should have admitted he was beaten by the better man that night. BJS helped me out and recommended some sparring partners to get ready and I haven’t been on the canvas with any of them guys.”
O’Sullivan laughed off Lemieux’s promise to remove his head from his shoulders.
“Doesn’t make one bit of sense,” O’Sullivan told Cooney and Gordon. “I think he’s not the sharpest tool in the box. The last guy that said something to me like that I knocked out in one round. Lemieux might have the same fate. It’s a stupid statement. How are you gonna rip someone’s head off in a boxing match? It’s not an MMA match!”
“I don’t think he thinks very much at all and I think it’s apparent in his fights. Continuously does the same. I’ve watched numerous of his fights; same thing over and over in fights he’s won and lost. He doesn’t have an awful lot going upstairs, you know?”
