WATCH: Stunning new Irish boxing documentary follows Jay Byrne journey

Jay Byrne has taken the road less travelled in more ways than one.

The fighter-manager-promoter has caused a real stir in Irish boxing since turning professional two years ago.

Big fights with top prospects in Britain, domestic title dust-ups, plenty proved wrong, and even more feathers ruffled, Byrne has gone about his business differently than most.

Over the past six months Byrne’s journey has been documented by Sideline Films – the team behind’s Round Zero – with the end product being the fascinating ‘Heart’ mini-documentary.

Past, present, and future are all detailed in the fantastically shot bio which includes clips from throughout the Loughlinstown welterweight’s action-packed career.
