The Irish Pound-for-Pound Rankings according to BoxRec (February 2021 Update)

The new year has started, boxing is back, and there has been tinkering to the algorithm.

So that means an update in the Irish Pound-for-Pound rankings according to BoxRec.com for the first time since last September.

Rankings are based solely on the popular website’s computerised system and are correct as of February 24th 2021.

Boxers are automatically removed from rankings following 18 months of inactivity.
