34 British and Irish boxers ranked in top 15 with WBC as of October 2020

The World Boxing Council released their latest world rankings, which features a total of 34 British and Irish boxers, an extra two more added since last month’s rankings.

Ohara Davies replaces Tyrone McKenna as the WBC International super-lightweight champion whilst also taking the Irishman’s no.15 ranking - he now slips to #16.

There’s no sign of the new WBC International lightweight champion Maxi Hughes, whose win over Viktor Kotochigov must’ve occurred too late in the month to be included, so fight fans can expect to see his name amongst the top 15 in November instead.
