The Lightweight division is home to some of the most skilled fighters in boxing. Ukraine’s Vasyl Lomachenko was widely considered the sport’s P4P best until his recent loss to Teofimo Lopez. Established in 1738, the first ever champion is thought to be Englishman Jack Broughton – the father of English boxing. The weight limit for the division is 135lb (61.23kg / 9st 9lb).


Notable Lightweight champions:

Carlos Ortiz, Roberto Duran, Julio Cesar Chavez, Pernell Whittaker, Juan Manuel Marquez, Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
