21 British and Irish boxers ranked in top 15 with the WBA as of the end of September 2020

The World Boxing Association released their latest world rankings at the end of September 2020, which features a total of 21 British and Irish boxers.

Following his recent shaky but successful fifth defence of his WBA International light-heavyweight title, Joshua Buatsi (13-0, 11KOs) is now ranked second in the 175lbs division, in touching distance of a shot at Dmitry Bivol (17-0, 11KOs), who has already consented to coming to the UK to defend his WBA Super title.

Boxer of the Month: Jermell Charlo for his eighth-round KO win over Jeison Manuel Rosario on September 26.
