Who do you think takes the top spot at 108 pounds? A division full of great champions and also some of the greatest wars you'll ever see in boxing! Anyone for Katsuo Tokashiki or Hideyuki Ohashi vs Jung Koo Chang, Michael Carbajal vs Humberto Gonzalez, Saman Sajutarong vs Humberto Gonzalez? Anyway, on to the contenders!

Humberto Gonzalez

Michael Carbajal

Jung Koo Chang

Myung Woo Yuh

All great HOF'ers, and you could make a case for each guy being the top dog, but who does it for you and why?

Or, maybe you've got another guy you think is the best.

Kind of a weight division I don't take much notice of to be honest.
I'll watch the fights and enjoy them but I really have a phobia against Junior/Super weights below LW, put it down to my grumpy old age.
I sort of have the view eat a bag of crisps and fight at a proper weight.

I personally rate Chiquita Gonzalez as the top dog. His depth of resume at Light Flyweight is unrivalled and with two wins over Carbajal and one over Chang I think he has to be recognised as the best ever at 108lbs. He was also putting a beating on Carbajal in their first meeting until the knockout.

I find it hard to split Carbajal and Chang, two fighters who were great to watch in terms of action. Both have solid wins a plenty, but perhaps Chang's run of 15 defences gives him the edge.

I don't rate Yuh as the best because although holding the record for number of defences at the weight I feel his resume is lacking on quality foes. I have never actually seen any footage of Yuh, but have read that he may have benefited from a bit of home cooking during his reign if anyone can shed any light on that?

Other names worth a mention: Hilario Zapata, Yoko Gushiken, Samon Sarjaturong
