Masao Ohba
Masao Ohba is listed as boxing's first world flyweight champion. He was a professional boxer from Tokyo, Japan. He became the WBA flyweight champion on October 22, 1970, defeating the reigning champion Berkrerk Chartvanchai in Tokyo and retained the championship for an impressive five title defenses. He tragically died from a car accident at only 22, still holding his world title.
