IBO release June 2021 world rankings

The IBO computerised boxing rankings for June 2021 are now available

There are 23 UK and Irish boxers currently ranked in the International Boxing Organization world top 10, and 45 in total in the top 20.

Commonwealth cruiserweight Chris Billam-Smith breaks into the top 10 after his WBA Continental title win over Vasil Ducar in March.

There’s a quartet of superb super-middleweights – Smith, Saunders, Parker and Ryder – all sitting high up in the top 10.

Chris Eubank Jr remains the IBO No.1 at middleweight and continues to chase his dream fight with champion Golovkin.

The super-welterweight has a distinct lack of UK fighters present, disappointingly. Ted Cheeseman is the highest ranked at 21, with Anthony Fowler just behind at 29, so there’s talent on its way through at least.

Kid Galahad and Josh Warrington’s conqueror Mauricio Lara are both the highest ranked featherweights, so with the title presently vacant, a fight between the pair makes perfect sense, however the Sheffield southpaw is the IBF mandatory and is set to face compatriot Jazza Dickens for the vacant IBF next.

'Lightning' Lee McGregor gatecrashes the bantamweight top 10 after adding the European crown to his collection in his last fight, that already includes British and Commonwealth titles.
