As part of the Morning Ireland sporting moment series, we've been looking back on some of the best moments in Irish sport.

Today we turn to boxing and a night of great joy some 25 years ago for Dubliner Steve Collins.

"I feel content, relived and happy" was the reaction of 'The Celtic Warrior' afterwards to RTÉ Sport, while adding that "Eubank didn't really want to fight me and that gave me the edge in Millstreet". 

Each week on RTÉ Radio 1's Morning Ireland, Darren Frehill will be delving into the archives to relive the nation's favourite sporting memories.
