  • Minimumweight is a weight class division in combat sports. The most notable of which is in professional boxing where boxers may weigh no more than 105 pounds. This is a relatively new weight category for professionals, first inaugurated by the major boxing sanctioning bodies between 1987 and 1990. Ricardo López holds the record for most consecutive title defenses at this division, with 21 defenses of the WBC title. In MMA, strawweight is considered 115lbs and below and is typically contested by women. It is never referred to as "minimumweight" in MMA.
