The Irish Pound-for-Pound Rankings according to BoxRec (January 2022 Update)

Happy New Year to all our readers.

It’s a relatively quiet time in Irish boxing following a busy 2021 in which there were almost 200 fights for Irish boxers.

So now is as good a time as any to give an update onn the Irish Pound-for-Pound rankings according to BoxRec.com for the first time since last February.

Rankings are based solely on the popular website’s computerised system and are correct as of January 1st 2022.

Boxers are automatically removed from rankings following 12 months of inactivity.
