Super Bantamweight Division     Weight: 122-126

History

Super Bantamweight (also known as junior featherweight) is a weight class who compete between 118 pounds and 122 pounds.

 

However, like many other divisions, establishing this weight class wasn’t straightforward. In the 1920s, boxing promoters attempted to create it, but few sanctioning organizations or state athletic commissions recognized it. Even after Jack Wolf gained recognition as the champion when he defeated Joe Lynch at Madison Square Garden, the Super Bantamweights failed to grow in acceptance. Unfortunately, the division virtually disappeared soon after 1922.

The reappearance of the Super Bantamweight division took place in the 1970s. The first title fight in 54 years took place in 1976, with the World Boxing Council (WBC) recognizing Rigoberto Riasco as its champion after he defeated Waruinge Nakayama. 

 

The World Boxing Association (WBA) followed suit in 1977, crowning Soo Hwan Hong as its inaugural champion after he knocked out Hector Carasquilla in three rounds.

Notable fighters who have held championship titles in this weight class includes Wilfredo Gómez who holds the record for the longest title reign, spanning five years and ten months. 

 

On December 26, 2023, Naoya Inoue achieved a memorable feat by becoming the first and only undisputed champion in the super bantamweight division.
