Irish BoxRec Pound-for-Pound Rankings (September update)


There have been some movers and shakers over the past three months in the BoxRec Irish Pound-for-Pound list.

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

Big climbers since the last update in June include St Michael’s Athy graduates Davey Oliver Joyce and Eric Donovan, as well as Regan Buckley following his domestic battle with Carl McDonald.

In addition, for the first time in recent memory (perhaps ever) the number of active Irish professional boxers ticks over the 100 mark.

Rankings correct as of September 24th 2017
