This may sound kinda red neck but...I had to cut mine with a little pipe cutter so I could get a regular wrench around it. After I did that I used liquid wrench and it came.

Use/borrow a torch and heat the bung it screws into.

I don't know if it will help remove an O2 sensor, but this technique helps remove stubborn threaded studs-might be worth a try:
