It was a triumphant day, his first pro title, but mental health problems were already casting a large cloud on his life.
Eastman, then the European middleweight champion, stopped him in the second and Thirlwall took his revenge a month later, though Beardsley made him climb off the canvas in the fifth to take the points verdict.
"It took me 10 years to get over my mental health problems because they had me on the wrong medication.
"Now I'm back boxing I'm living life again and I'm back to my old self.

"When I trained too hard it would sometimes make it worse.
"I'm getting my fitness back," he said.
He made his debut in 1995 and was never considered a future star of the sport, though his brave, come forward style meant his contests were not short of entertainment value.
"When you pack up boxing, it's like losing a leg because you don't know what to do with yourself. I had that to deal with and my mental health to deal with as well.
"I won't say having cancer could ever be a good thing but it gave me the kick up the backside I needed to take better care of myself.
"I think there is one treatment to suit everybody but finding it is the problem. You can't put your finger on it.
"One thing kind of led to another. I never planned it that way.
That does not leave much time to get properly prepared but Beardsley says the fighting instincts are coming back to him.
"I was told what I had was similar but most of the time I was alright and even when I did go, I was still aware of everything and knew what was going on."

But Beardsley's final bout, in December that year, saw him take Lee Murtagh's British Masters light middleweight title.
"It's not like having a broken arm where it's obvious what to do to fix it, it's a horrible disease.
"A lot of people suffer from different sorts of mental health problems. I was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic but another specialist told Adidas White Sweatshirts

to control it and that was the problem.
"A couple of weeks ago I had some sparring with this bloke who was two stones heavier than I am and he really pushed me around but I had another session with the same bloke a couple of days ago and I gave him a black eye this time.
"I had the operation on February 17 to take the kidney out. You have to wait six months after the operation and then go for a chest and abdominal scan to see if there's any more cancer and that gave me the all clear.
His final year, 2003, was possibly his most successful, starting when he beat the much vaunted Matthew Thirlwall in Nottingham in front of the TV cameras.
"I started out walking when I got out of hospital, then I started jogging and before long I was back training properly and thinking about boxing again.
When Beardsley was, at last, beginning to get his mental health problems under control, he has hit by another serious illness.
Beardsley's comeback will be on an EBF sanctioned show at the Heritage Hotel in Derby on September 11, promoted by the Derby Sporting Club.
"I had a chemical imbalance because my body was producing too much testosterone," he said.
"My problems came when I was in my early 30s, as it does with a lot of people, but when I was a teenager I used to have panic attacks, so it was always there.
