Sparks flew on Wednesday in Dublin as fierce rivals Anthony Fitzgerland and Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan went head-to-head during fight week.
The pair are set to clash this weekend at the 3Arena in what is expected to be a barnstormer on Saturday night, but almost began proceedings early as promoter Eddie Hearn arranged a photo opportunity.
Fitzgerald went straight in forcefully with his forehead, and although O’Sullivan initially stayed composed, the 30 year-old attempted a cheeky kiss and was prompted slapped away for his trouble by the home fighter.
The middleweight contest between Matthew Macklin and Jorge Sebastian Heiland tops the bill in a Matchroom card that will be televised live on Sky Sports.
