The rankings, accounting for all bouts up until September 24th, have six Irish boxers listed.
Wicklow’s Katie Taylor [6(4)-0] has moved up one spot at lightweight, and is now the #1-ranked boxer at the weight. However the Bray boxer looks set to challenge WBA champion Anahi Ester Sanchez in Cardiff next weekend.
Luke Keeler [13(5)-2(1)] remains at #11 in the middleweight rankings, but will be out of the ring for the next few months following shoulder surgery to correct a long-standing niggle.
At super featherweight Anto Cacace [15(7)-0] holds firm at #5 at super featherweight and will be back in action on the Celtic Clash 4 bill in Dublin on Saturday December 2nd.
Also at super featherweight, Irish champion James Tennyson [19(15)-2(2)] remains at #11 ahead of his fight this Saturday Darren Traynor in Belfast.
Super flyweight is not a weight considered at European level, so Belfast’s Jamie Conlan [19(11)-0] is ranked at bantamweight. ‘The Mexican’ is ranked at #2, however his attentions lie elsewhere with an IBF super flyweight title challenge against Jerwin Ancajas in Belfast on Saturday November 18th at the SSE Odyssey Arena.
Carl Frampton [23(14)-1(0)] remains the #1 featherweight. ‘The Jackal’ fights on the same card as Conlan next month, taking on Mexican Horacio Garcia over ten as he looks to prepare for a return to world level.
The five male fighters also feature in the EBU European Union rankings (there is no EU title for women).
#10 Middleweight – Luke Keeler (-)
#5 Super Featherweight – Anto Cacace (-)
#10 Super Featherweight – James Tennyson (-)
#1 Featherweight – Carl Frampton (-)
#2 Bantamweight – Jamie Conlan (-)
Additionally, five more Irish boxers are also in the EU ladders.
Tommy McCarthy [9(5)-1(0] is down another place to #16 in the cruiserweight rankings. The Belfast big man returns to the ring after eleven months out this Saturday in a six rounder on the big Sky bill at the SSE Odyssey Arena.
Peter McDonagh [28(2)-28(2)-1], formerly #18 at welterweight, has been reclassified to #18 at light middleweight following his extremely impressive win over Shayne Singleton on the Parker-Fury undercard – which took place at 154lbs.
Phil Sutcliffe Jr [13(8)-2(1)] remains #28 at light welterweight.
In the super featherweight rankings, Declan Geraghty [15(4)-2(1)] is up one spot to #18. However, the Dubliner will leave this ladder next month when he takes on Jono Carroll in a big rematch at the SSE Odyssey Arena for the IBF East/West Europe belt.
Finally, Marco McCullough [17(10)-4(3)] remains at #18 at featherweight. The Shankill man currently has no date, but will be hoping to also appear at the Odyssey next month.
