The Irish-Boxing Awards are up and running!
Our first category is Comeback of the Year and there have been some fantastic stories in 2020.
From returns from injury and illness to getting back in the ring following devastating defeats, Irish boxers just don’t know when to lay down.
We recognise FIVE of these here.
The nominees are
A debilitating foot injury was the latest roadblock for Irvine to overcome and he did so in style, qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics.
Having almost walked away from the sport, the Belfast super feather turned professional and has racked up two wins thus far.
The Vanilla Gorilla returned from his nightmare night at the Féile with a win at the Ulster Hall in February
The horror knee injury that ruined his debut was put behind him as Ward claimed two quickfire wins in Mexico
The Newtownabbey big man bounced back from his Golden Contract quarter-final defeat last year by stepping up to cruiser and claiming a comeback win over Jone Volau.
