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


It’s been a busy start to the year for Irish boxing.

Three shows on these shores, dozens in action overseas, there have been plenty of moves in the Irish Pound-for-Pound list according to BoxRec.com.

Our last update came in January following a change in the algorithm which calculates the rankings and, since then, there has been another change which has led to widespread – and sometimes baffling – shifts in the ladder.

Rankings correct as of April 15th 2019
