Sean Mannion (born 6 October 1956 in Rosmuc, Ireland) is a former boxer in the light middleweight division.[1][2] He boxed out of Massachusetts in the United States. His most notable bout was against Mike McCallum for the vacant WBA title, which he lost over a fifteen-round unanimous decision.> In January 2014, Rocky Ros Muc: Seán Ó Mainnín, a biography about Mannion's life and career, written by Rónán Mac Con Iomaire, was released. The book is written in Irish but an English version was also released.[3] A film adaptation was released in July 2017 under the same title, produced and directed by Michael Fanning. RTE Documentary on One made a programme about Sean's story - Never Knocked Down - produced by Robert Mulhern which won gold in the 2015 Celtic Media Awards.[citation needed]
