Eleven Irish boxers will finish out the year included in the AIBA World rankings.
Kellie Harrington and Rio 2016 Olympian Joe Ward, both World Elite finalists, are the highest ranked Irish boxers.
Harrington, who has moved down to light, is No. 2 at light-welter, and current European champion Ward is No.4 at light-heavy.
Grainne Walsh is at No. 6 at welter and Rio 2016 Olympian Steven Donnelly at No. 14 at the same limit, while Brendan Irvine, also a Rio 2016 Olympian, is No. 19 at flyweight.
The 2017 men’s rankings were updated last September and the women’s last July.
Cork’s Christina Desmond is in 20th position in the middle class, but the position should be No. 19 as Claressa Shields of the USA, the No.1, has turned pro.
The rankings are based on performances over a two-year rolling period at the Olympics and World and Continental Championships and multi-sports events (i.e. the European Games).
Boxers moving weights retain 75% of their points.
