Most fans know about the Men’s Flyweight division and some of those fans complain about it.

Some fans know about the Men’s Strawweight division (~115lb), which is not very widely adopted.

But, did you know that there are Men’s Atomweight bouts (~105lb)?  It makes sense, as this is the lightest Men’s division in boxing — a division which catches quite a bit of grief as the population is scarce in comparison to other divisions and mainly restricted to East and Southeast Asia.

Here are the World’s Best Atomweights
Fighters who have fought at 110lb or below in the past 3 years
