Irish BoxRec Pound-for-Pound Rankings (August Update)


There have been plenty of changes over the past few months in the BoxRec Irish Pound-for-Pound list.

Numerous fighters have made massive jumps while a large handful have dropped out of the rankings due to inactivity.

Calculated by the popular website’s ratings formula, below is the rankings of all active Irish boxers.

Big climbers since the last update in March include new European champion James Tennyson, Mick Conlan, Tyrone McCullagh, and welterweights Lewis Crocker, John Joyce, Aaron McKenna, and Keane McMahon.

Rankings correct as of August 6th 2018
