The Cruiserweight is a weight class in boxing between light heavyweight and heavyweight and forfighters weighing 200lbs/14st 4lbs. Before the advent of the current cruiserweight class, “light heavyweight” and “cruiserweight” were sometimes used interchangeably in Britiain.
The current weight limit for the division is 200 pounds (14 stone 4 pounds / 90.7kg). When originally established, the weight limit was 190 pounds (86.2kg). The division was established in order to accommodate smaller heavyweight boxers who could not compete with the growing size of competitiors in that weight class.
The WBC was the first boxing organization to recognise the cruiserweight division when it sanctioned in a bout between Marvin Camel and Mate Parlov on December 8, 1979, for their version of the title.
Most boxing fans though always hold the linier champion has the true world champion in each division (ie: the man who beat the man, who beat the man…)
