James Moore (born February 26, 1978 in Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland), is a professional boxer.[1] Moore currently fights in the Light Middleweight division although he fought as a welterweight during his amateur career.

Amateur titles[edit]

Moore boxed as an amateur for Ireland and won three national senior titles and a bronze medal at the 2001 World Amateur Boxing Championships.[2][3][4]

Professional career[edit]

Moore turned professional in August 2005, winning his first fight at the Manhattan Center, New York, NY, USA, in which Moore knocked out fellow debutant Gabrial Garcia on an undercard that included Jaidon Codrington and Patrick Nwamu.[5]
