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

liffey crane hire 1

Three months ago we compiled the full Irish pound-for-pound list according to stats website BoxRec.com.

Since the end of March there have been five shows in Ireland and dozens of Irish boxers in action overseas so we have decided to put together an updated list.

Big climbers include Paul Hyland Jr, Paddy Barnes, Feargal McCrory and Ray Moylette.

Carl Frampton remains number one, while Ireland’s only current world champion Ryan Burnett moves up to second position.

Rankings correct as of June 27th 2017
