Lynch was an outstanding bantamweight in a period of outstanding bantams; He was tall for his weight which made him look skinny and frail; His best punching combination was a stiff left jab followed by one of the best rights in the business; He could take the fight to his man and when attacked was game and held up well; Lynch was never knocked out or stopped; In a career of nearly 160 bouts, Lynch lost only 13 official contests; During his career, Joe won the Bantamweight Championship of the World

Among those Lynch defeated during his career were Abe Goldstein, Kid Williams, Pete "Kid" Herman, Johnny Buff, Monte Attell, "Memphis" Pal Moore, Al Walker, Eddie O'Keefe, Benny Schwartz, William "Midget" Smith, Dick Loadman, Eddie Coulon and "Little" Jack Sharkey

After retiring from the ring, Lynch bought a farm and a gymnasium; He later served as Postmaster for New York City

Nat Fleischer ranked Lynch as the #4 All-Time Bantamweight
