Make that three LEGITIMATE weight classes and four BOGUS ones. Not to mention watered down alphabet belts.

Jofre didn't move up in weight enough to rate higher than Manny.

Gotta go with Pac here.

Given its history, and longevity, there's nothing bogus about 140. It is very much its own storied weight class. 122, where he was just a beltholder, has also built a defining place. The original eight are typically stronger, but some of the Jr. classes have earned their stripes.

As to the question, Manny has climbed more classes but Jofre was arguably the GOAT at Bantamweight (with an exceptional reign) and his comeback at Featherweight was incredible.

I consider any division tagged with "Junior" or "Super" to be bogus. You can throw "Cruiser" and "Straw" in there too. There's nothing that could ever legitimize them in my eyes.

Its close but I lean towards Jofre at the moment. Manny still has time to surpass im with a few more good performances, but we'll see.
