    With Chocolatito's moving up to 115, boxing's flyweight lineage has officially ended, one that has gone on since 1975. Let's take a moment to appreciate this great division as well as its' illustrious champs, like Miguel Canto, Sot Chitalada, Yuri Arbachakov, Pongsaklek Wonjongkam and Roman Gonzalez.

    Here are 112's great heroes:

    also, if y'all like Russians, Yuri Arbachakov makes Kovalev look like he hasn't boxed a day in his life

    Lets give ironfist05 a round of applause for always loving the parts of boxing that no one gives a shit about.
    The little guys, east euros, and Orientals.

    let's not forget nicaraguastan and ghanazuela

    actually, I know you're joking, but Eastern Europe generally has a very small presence in this division (barring the long reigning arbachakov obviously)

    I meant East Euros and Asian fighters in general, not just the 112lbs.

    I know.
    Not the argument.
    Ironfist tends to be fans of the not so popular parts of boxing. That was the joke

    BTW: Just in case anyone thought ironfist was joking about his comment (that Arbachakov makes Kovalev look like a dude who's never boxed a day in his life), watch this:

    Joke or not, I do appreciate @ironfist05's dedication to often neglected weight classes and fighters. There are a lot of guys on here who I like to banter with, but him and @XCuTioNeR keep me watching things I wouldn't normally watch.
