 Spike O'Sullivan has landed the first blow ahead of tomorrow evening's final eliminator bout for the WBA middleweight title. Or kiss rather.

The pair faced off for the cameras at today's weigh-in, with the obligatory smack-talk ensuing. 

During what was an intense stare down, O'Sullivan blew a kiss at Eubank and these antics clearly bugged the 26-year-old.

Eubank appeared to shake his head and say “Don’t do that.”, which is of course mistake number one as the Corkman seized his opportunity to get one over on his counterpart.

The 30-year-old laughed (maniacally) before leaning forward and landing a kiss on Eubank's lips. 

“He’s trying to ruffle my feathers, he’s trying to get in my face,” Eubank said.

“He knows that I have a strong mental advantage over him so he’s trying to bring me down to his level.”

Eubank will be hoping that this is the only thing that Spike lands when the pair face off at London's O2 Arena tomorrow night as part of the Joshua/Whyte undercard.
