A close run vote, one fighter stood out following a huge performance.
So without any further ado, the award goes to:
A 40-38 four-round points win over Radoslav Mitev may not seem overly impressive on the face of it but, in context, it was a big night for the Limerick light middleweight.
McCormack suffered bereavement in the build-up to the fight, with his best friend and father-in-law both passing away in the days leading up to the bout.
However, refusing to withdraw from the fight, McCormack would bring a large crowd across the country to the ‘Celtic Clash 6’ card in Dublin and would put on a career-best performance.
Facing his toughest opponent to date in Mitev, ‘The G-Train’ put in a controlled performance, boxing at length, dropping the Bulgarian, and scoring an emotional win.
Coming in second was Katie Taylor who defended her WBA and IBF lightweight titles in London with a dominant third-round stoppage of Kimberly Connor, while Carl McDonald came in third following his BUI Celtic featherweight title win over Colin O’Donovan.
