I like Duddy but the only thing he has going for him at the moment (last 5-6 fights) is A)Chin and heart and B) 0 loses

You cannot rate him ahead of the other 3, what has he achieved?

You can say Lee hasnt done much, but he has skills for sure..

Christ man
I've seen ALL his fights since 2006.

You are right to point out that he is unbeaten and that is one of the primary reasons he is at the top. He has the best chance of gaining a legit world title.

Lee is still coming of an embarassing naive defeat against Vera, Dunne still has the "glass jaw" question hanging over his head and although McCloskey was my fighter of the year I think Duddy has fought and beaten tougher and better foes that McCloskey has yet to face.

1)Duddy
2)McCloskey
3)Dunne
4)Lee
5)Macklin
6)Lindsay
7)Magee
James Moore
9)Andrew Murray
10)Michael Gomez

how anyone can have Lee ahead of Duddy at this moment in time is beyond me, take Lee's fight with Vera, certainly his most memorable fight, he got dragged into a war and came out battered and defeated, duddy has fought better operators in eastman and campas and come out on top.you can say whatever you want about ability, but if he doesn't put it into practice he cannot be above duddy.
mccloskey is simply the most skillful irish boxer around at the minute and can make a huge impact on the european scene and maybe secure a world title shot although it will be extremely difficult.
dunne has fought the much better opposition that lee and has won a major title and recovered brilliantly from being 'exposed' by martinez, i'm very confident he could beat munroe in style if the fight happens.
anyone who puts sutherland in their top10 is having a ****ing laugh, he doesnt deserve to be near the top10 yet, yes he has the ability but he's had one fight so wise the **** up!

great to see 2 Derry men topping the top 10!

pretty much the same as mine if we swapped Gomez and Andy Murray.

I agree about Sutherland - BUT he has the potential to shoot into the top ten within six months or a year imo. Time will tell
