The Rinty Monaghan Fighter of the Year in association with Liffey Crane Hire.
A major year for the sport on this island, there have been big wins galore, major titles, and major medals, as boxing continually proves itself to be Ireland’s most successful sport.
Fighter of the Year
The Portlaoise super bantamweight scored one of the Irish boxing wins of the century in August when he travelled to Japan to dethrone Ryosuke Iwasa in the Korakuen Hall to take the IBF world title.
The Dublin lightweight showed every facet of her game to win five fights and top the podium at the World Championships in India last month, becoming just the third Irish boxer to do so and putting her in prime position for a charge at Olympic gold.
The Kildare light middleweight defeated Jimmy Kelly in a second successive world title eliminator before, with mandatory position already confirmed and therefore ‘risked’, beating Jamie Weetch and the Brisbane-based fight will now challenge for a belt in the new year.
The Wicklow lightweight added the IBF title to her WBA crown with a unification war win over Victoria Noelia Bustos and followed this up with successful defences versus Kimberley Connor, Cindy Serrano, and Eva Wahlstrom.
The Belfast super feather claimed the European and Commonwealth titles with an upset win over Martin J Ward back in May, a victory made all the more remarkable by him having to climb off the canvas to claim a knockout victory before going out on his shield versus IBF champ Tevin Farmer.
