Light-Flyweight

Light flyweight, also known as junior flyweight or mini flyweight, is a weight class in boxing. The weight limit at light flyweight in professional boxing is 108 pounds (49 kilograms). When New York legalized boxing in 1920, the law stipulated a "junior flyweight" class, with a weight limit of 99 pounds.
