Roy Sheahan | Ireland’s Last Man Standing
Roy Sheahan 🙌 #IrelandsLastManStanding — Carl Frampton MBE (@RealCFrampton) March 3, 2018 'Joker' missed out on the Senior Elite Championships in 2017, and hung up his gloves soon afterwards. However, he decided to turn pro in order to compete at last night's tournament, using a four round warm up fight to obtain his licence from the BUI. The Athy fighter overcame Vladimir Belujsky and JJ McDonagh on his route to the final earlier in the night. Cullen, on the other side of the draw, beat Nick Quigley and Ricky Hatton's protégé Chris Blaney on points before facing off against Sheahan in the final of the Prizefighter style event.
With the right training and conditioning Roy Sheahan can win Irish ☘ title handy. Then on to bigger scalps #TheJoker @RedCornerPro — Kenneth Egan OLY (@kenegan30) March 4, 2018 The victory is likely to open a lot of doors for Sheahan, who may choose to target the Irish title next, with further potential for European bouts if he is successful. Following Sheahan's stunning win, Irish boxer Craig O'Brien claimed the Irish light middleweight title with a victory over fellow Dubliner Jay Byrne. Cillian Reardon - the Leinster rugby athletic performance coach - also picked up a victory on points on his professional debut.
