NEW: The Irish Pound-for-Pound Rankings according to BoxRec


There hasn’t been a fight involving an Irish boxer since the last edition of the BoxRec Irish Pound-for-Pound list.

However, there has been a change in the algorithm which has led to widespread movers throughout the rankings.

You may have seen newspaper articles reporting that Taylor is now ranked as the women’s pound-for-pound #1 and the change that brought about this sudden move has also caused other shifts.

Calculated by the popular website’s ratings formula, below is the rankings of all active Irish boxers.

Rankings correct as of January 14th 2018
