Under The Microscope: The Super Flyweight Division

The 115-pound division is primed and ready to explode ... and you don't want to miss it.

If I were to ask you who the most popular boxers currently active in the sport of boxing today are, I’d expect answers like Anthony Joshua, Gennady Golovkin or Vasyl Lomachenko. Now I'm being presumptuous but I’m sceptical that I’d hear names like Jerwin Ancajas, Juan Francisco Estrada or even Kal Yafai.  

Now it isn’t your fault if you aren’t too familiar with the names I’ve just mentioned. But thankfully times are changing for boxing’s little men. For the names, i have mentioned all compete in the Super Flyweight division. Now I am happy to come off the fence and tell you that the Super Flyweight is one of if not THE best division in the great sport of boxing today, and if one man’s mind is made up it’s about to get a whole lot better.

My reasoning for putting the Super Flyweight division on a pedestal is simple. Firstly the level of talent on show is truly something to behold. The mix of the sweet science with the eagerness to stand and trade for twelve solid rounds proves too good to resist. Secondly, unlike in other divisions, there isn’t a willingness to avoid one another, the best fight the best. Furthermore, unlike many other weight division’s, network issues do not stand in the way of fights being made. HBO Boxing must be commended for the work they have done in bringing the 115-pound division into the mainstream. Last year’s Superfly card made the world stand up and take notice, and it’s follow up card whilst drawing slightly lower numbers, gave us an early contender for the fight of the year.

If you haven't watched either card I implore you to do so, it will not disappoint. For the first time, the Super Flyweight division has a platform and a spotlight in the western world. The division already boasts two of the top ten pound for pound best in the world in Naoya Inoue and Sor Rungvisai. Add former pound for pound #1 Roman Gonzalez, Juan Francisco Estrada and Jerwin Ancajas into the mix. Along with the news that Donnie Nietes is willing to throw his hat into the Super Flyweight ring. The sparks are there, the match is primed and ready to light the touch paper and the 115-pound division is about to explode in a big way.
