Best at Light-Flyweight

Posted 02-22-2009 at 06:11 PM by The Monk
To be honest, when I started my journey through all of boxings weight classes I couldn’t tell you much about Light Flyweight at all. I knew about the trilogy between the two hall of famers, Carbajal and Gonzalez, but that is about the limit of my knowledge. After a bit of research I became aware that the History of the division, albeit quite short, was an interesting one.
