Fourth Edition Of The Irish Boxing Review Out Now

by James Slater - A fine read that takes a most interesting look back at big fights such as the controversial Paul McCloskey-Amir Khan clash as well as taking an in-depth look at warriors Matthew Macklin and Martin Rogan (who will face Tyson Fury for the Irish heavyweight title this Saturday night), the 2012 issue of The Irish Boxing Review by author Steve Wellings will be of huge interest to fight fans the world over..

With contributions from past and present ESB contributors, as well as from Boxing News writers, the book is a great read:

In this latest edition of the Review we revisit the Irish Boxing Awards which is swiftly moving into its fourth year and still offering deserved recognition to the worthy achievers that collect the cut glass trophies on offer for outstanding achievement. We also meet the matchmakers entrusted with the unenviable task of putting together a fight card; delve into the minds of the creative talents behind those boxing photographs and quality images that regularly appear online and in magazines; plus we take a brief look at the growing influence of the intriguing World Series of Boxing tournament

After catching up with the Irish boxing fraternity online we finish by hearing from some of the better known boxing personalities who write, chat and debate the noble art on a regular basis. We later peruse a selection of concise reviews of the year including all of the results that mattered from the world of boxing and there are complete lists of active Irish boxers' fight records as supplied by Gerry Callan. Sandwiched in between is the timeline of events, a selection of previews, reviews and fight articles that guide you step-by- step through all of the big talking points.

Covering all big fights and major fighters involved, including: Paul McCloskey, Matthew Macklin, Andy Lee, Carl Frampton, Willie Casey, Stephen Ormond, Tyson Fury, Martin Rogan, Brian Magee, and much more.

Praise For The 2011 Edition

Finally a boxing book that pulls it all together: Fights, fighters, dates and proper 'live' reports. It's my type of boxing book - no fantasy, just the truth. Perfect. Steve Bunce

The Irish Boxing Review was a welcome addition to the fight scene here, and Steve Wellings as expected did a fine job, with interesting and informative articles. I look forward very much to the 2012 edition and long may Irish Boxing Review continue.
