David Walshe, founder of Ireland’s most popular boxing website www.irishboxers.ie, is the latest to join the credible rooster that is the staff of the World Boxing Federation (WBF), with the goal of helping further develop the sport in the Republic of Ireland.

Walshe, from Portlaw in the south of the Irish Republic, is involved in boxing in his home country in a number of different areas for over 30 years. He still advises a number of professional fighters and matchmakes, which is part of what he calls “a combined service including the running and development of the website, dedicated to Irish boxers based worldwide”. Without exaggeration, this site is fast becoming a bible for Irish boxers all over the globe.

Walshe will work alongside Paul Thomas, the highly respected WBF Regional Representative for Great Britain and Ireland, who is also a member of the WBF Executive Committee. “Boxing is my life and I am always looking at ways to help and develop the sport,” Walshe said, “I can assure you that I will work in the World Boxing Federation’s best interest, treat boxers, officials and promoters with the utmost respect and do all in my power to bring the best possible results to the WBF.”
