    I'm not an expert on flyweights (or anything else for that matter), but during his day Pascual (Pascal??) Perez was thought to be the heaviest puncher ever in the flyweight division, so I throw his hat into the ring for this thread's consideration. He scored 57 stoppages in 84 fights, held the title for four years, and had six successful defenses. He lost the title when he on the far side of 33-years old. Like Wilde, he was an undersized flyweight, 4 teet 11 inches tall and weighing on average 106-109 pounds.

    Which title you refer about; the South American or Argentinian one?

    He not very often proved himself against world class opponents (boxing in his backyard against domestic rival mainly) and when he did he sometimes failed.

    I would name Roman Gonzalez, Pancho Villa, Manny Pacquaio and Nonito Donaire (maybe Darchinyan or Oguma too).

    By all accounts, Pascual Perez was generally recognized as the WORLD FLYWEIGHT CHAMPION from 1956 to 1960.

    You raise a valid point about the location of his fights before he fought for the title, but your statement does not bear up during the time period while he held the title, namely that

    He won the title from Yoshi Shirai, a Japanese, in Tokyo, Japan
    He successfully defended the title against Ramon Arias, a Venezuelan, in Caracas, Venezuela
    He successfully defended the title against Dommy Ursua, a Filipino, in Cordoba, Manila Phillipines
    He successfully defended the title against Sadao Yaoita, a Japanese, in Osaka, Japan
    He lost the title to Pone Kingpetch, a Thai, in Bangkok, Thailand

    Your selections are certainly good ones.

    I'd also mention Antonio Avelar. Huge puncher, but the definition of glass cannon and bully. Very physical for the weight.

    Jimmy Wilde has to be #1. He was basically a strawweight KO'ing bantamweights and even featherweights. Donaire is up there too.

    Avelar KO of the very talented Tae Shik Kim came to mind when I saw your post.

    Michael Carbajal could punch. For awhile it looked as if he was gonna bring alot of attention to the lower divisions.
    I do remember his fight with Humberto Gonzalez where 'Little Hands of Stone' got off the canvas 2x to stretch Chiquita.
    After the fighter Carbajal said "he ain't got no heart"
