Rio Olympian Brendan Irvine and current EU Elite champion Kurt Walker made welcome returns after being out with hand injuries. Both men won their first fights back.
“It’s been a serious hard few months out of the ring but I have got through it on the good side and I am ready for the big year ahead,” said European Games finalist Irvine who has been out with the injury since captaining Ireland versus India last May.
Current Irish Elite champions Carly McNaul and James McGivern won, with McNaul beating 2016 World Elite bronze medallist Christina Cruz on a split decision.
