Light middleweight, also known as super welterweight or junior middleweight, is a weight class in combat sports.

In professional boxing, the undisputed champion of a weight class is the boxer who holds world titles from all of the major sanctioning organisations simultaneously. There are currently four major sanctioning bodies: WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO. There were many undisputed champions before the number of sanctioning bodies increased to four, but there have only been five boxers to hold all four titles simultaneously. Josh Taylor is the undisputed light welterweight champion, currently the only undisputed champion.
