    Don't like the "super" names, hope IBF keeps the "junior" names.

    And light-heavyweight stays the same. That guy doesn't follow any of the rules.

    how I see it:

    heavyweight
    cruiserweight
    light heavyweight
    super middleweight
    middleweight
    junior middleweight
    welterweight
    junior welterweight
    lightweight
    super featherweight
    featherweight
    super bantamweight
    bantamweight
    super flyweight
    flyweight
    junior flyweight
    strawweight

    not really any logic to it, but just how I like the sound

    Shame they aren't unifying the names in the rankings too. Four world champions per division is ridiculous.

    same with me. Don't know why but never liked the super thing, except for smw. They get a pass, imo.

    I don't know, Superflyweight might be the winner haha.

    Everything should just be gauges of heavyweight, the true weightclass. Middlewieght can be JuniorSubLightHeavyweight,etc.

    "Damn it light heavyweight i would have your badge for this, if you werent so damn good at your job"


    i personally dont have a problem with the way it is now, but as long as they dont mess with 105 through 122 i will be good

    Cruiser weight used to be called junior heavyweight too.
