The Lineal Junior Bantamweight Boxing Champions

The 115-lb. division was included as part of NY's Walker Law of 1920, but our research does not reveal any claimants to that title. The WBC resurrected the 115-poud class in 1980, with Venezuelan Rafael "Patono" Orono winning the title. Orono lost to Chul Ho Kim, then regained it from Kim in 1982, then lost to Payao Poontarat. The WBA's title started in 1981 with Gustavo Ballas, who lost to Rafael Pedroza, who lost to Jiro Watanabe in 1982. Poontarat fought Watanabe in July 1984 for the lineal title.
