We’re finally back!

Following a delay as our website was updated and upgraded, it’s time for the latest edition of the Liffey Crane Hire Irish Boxer of the Month.

This instalment covers the months of September and October as Irish fighters claimed big wins at both amateur and professional level.

In all, we have 11 nominees and voting is open until Friday night [voting restricted to one vote per IP address].

Light Welterweight
The massively talented Turf Lodge southpaw was given a scare by Emiliano Rodriguez but was able to climb off the canvas and grind out a points win.
