James Anthony McGirt (born November 25, 1982), who fights as James McGirt Jr.,[1] is a professional boxer of the Super middleweight division. He is the son of former IBF Junior welterweight and WBC welterweight champion James "Buddy" McGirt, who also serves as his trainer.[2] His current record is 21 wins 2 losses, 1 draw and 1 no contest, with 10 knockouts.

McGirt graduated from Brentwood High School on Long Island in 2000.

As an amateur, McGirt compiled a 44-4 record, winning the Sunshine State Games and Southeastern Regional. He also made it to the US Championship quarter-finals. Despite a good amateur career, McGirt did not participate in the Olympic Trials, due to having his first son.

McGirt made his professional debut on January 24, 2004 in Atlantic City, New Jersey winning a four-round decision against James North. McGirt has made several appearances on ESPN and Showtime.

McGirt fought against Carlos De Leon Jr. on April 11, 2008. Both fighters were the sons of former world champions. After having De Leon down in the 6th round, McGirt was caught by a massive left hook early in round 7 which had him hurt. De Leon finished off McGirt with an uppercut giving the young fighter the first loss of his career. His second was Mexico's Angel Hernandez.
