One fighter who has seemingly fallen off the radar over the last 12 months is exciting Cork puncher Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan. The forgotten man returns to title action on June 25 when he travels to opponent Robbie Long’s Dublin backyard for a National Stadium title affair.
Long’s manager and trainer Paddy Hyland will promote the Irish middleweight title headliner, a crown “Spike” claimed back in December 2009 against Ciaran Healy, on a night that was supposed to provide a springboard for further success.
“I feel like a lion that’s been locked in a budgie cage for 12 months,” said Gary, who took out his frustrations on Ryan Clark recently, as part of the Nathan Cleverly world title undercard. “It’s been an unbelievably frustrating time for me but I was training and sparring all year so I don’t see ring rust as a problem.”

Professor Frank Sullivan, a radiation oncologist at NUI Galway and director of the Prostate Cancer Institute, is one of the founders of “Blue September”, a prostate cancer awareness campaign in Ireland.
One in eight Irish men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and every year about 500 of them die from it – yet prostate cancer is 90 per cent curable if detected and treated early. So why are so many dying?
“Men don’t seem to get the message as well as women that early detection in cancer does lead to a better survival rate,” says Prof Frank Sullivan.
As a radiation oncologist at NUI Galway and director of the Prostate Cancer Institute, Sullivan is at the coalface of the problem. And, as one of the people behind Blue September, a campaign to make men more aware of their health, he, along with prominent Irish men including singer Ronan Keating, broadcaster Matt Cooper and Tipperary hurler Lar Corbett, are literally going blue in the face to get the message across.
Sheila O'Sullivan, lead singer with ' The Jades', this week described her experiences auditioning for The X Factor, and warned others thinking of auditioning to be aware of what might lie ahead.
