34 British and Irish boxers presently ranked in WBC top 15

The World Boxing Council released their latest world rankings for February 2021, which includes a total of 34 British and Irish boxers, two more than last month’s rankings.

Californian Ryan Garcia was named as the World Boxing Council’s Boxer of the Month for his triumph over Briton Luke Campbell in January.

The light-heavyweight division has a notable absence in the top 15 – Sergey Kovalev, who tested positive for banned substances. That disappearance has allowed Brits Buatsi, Yarde, Arthur and Johnson to all move a single space.

British middleweight champion Denzel Bentley is up to 23rd position and will be gatecrashing the top 15 very soon if he continues his winning streak. Commonwealth champion Felix Cash is right behind him in 24th.

The super-bantamweight division has four Brits all hovering just outside the top 15, with Jamie McDonnell, Gamal Yafai, Chris Bourke and Brad Foster all positioned between 19-22.
