The Entire Irish Pound-for-Pound Rankings according to BoxRec

One of the handiest tools in modern boxing is the unofficial record-keeping website BoxRec.com.

The website features the full records of pretty much every professional boxer in history.

In addition to a record of fights, the website also offers a computerised rankings system (based solely on results).

While far from perfect, something which they admit, and open to being manipulated by clever matchmaking, the rankings are always interesting to observe.

Below is the pound-for-pound rankings of Irish boxers, according to BoxRec.com
