The inaugural edition of the Prizefighter-style tournament brought boxing back to terrestrial television, with TG4 broadcasting the middleweight competition live.
Both the coverage and the action in the ring was well received, and Irish boxers all over the island were delighted to see the mercurially talented Roy Sheahan take home top prize.
