Lineal Junior Flyweight World Champions
In the 1920s the New York State Athletic Commission (1920) and National Boxing Association (1921), briefly recognised a “Junior Flyweight” division, and stipulated that the limit be 99lbs. However, by 1922 and 1929 (for the NBA and New York respectively), these organisations ceased to identify this weight class.
In 1975, within the space of 5 months of each-other, the WBC and WBA crowned their first title holders at Junior Flyweight, with 108lbs being set as the division’s limit.
Frustratingly, it wasn’t until almost 18 years later that the division’s top two rated contenders finally met (in what was also the division’s first unification fight), when Michael Carbajal defeated Humberto Gonzalez, for the inaugural Lineal Title.
The number of stars indicates the number of times a fighter has won the Lineal Title in this division.
