Pantera I, Current champion

Pantera I is the 13th lightweight champion. He defeated Diablo Jr. I in a tournament final for the vacant championship on November 13th, 2016.

History of Championship

Freelance became the first lightweight champion, beating Aeroman in a three falls final. Freelance spent most of 2008 contesting for the DF Trios titles, but found himself in a feud with AJPW trainee Tetsuya (also known as Bushi) by the end of the year.

Tetsuya was finally able to win the championship on February 8th, in a three way with Dr. Cerebro. Due to the stipulations of the match, Cerebro and Freelance later met in a hair match. With those two occupied, Zatura quickly stepped up as Testuya's challenger and defeated him for the title after a short month reign.

Zatura lost the title in his first defense to Trauma II on June 18th. The two had been partners until they had a major falling out which set the stage for the excellent technical title match. Bushi beat Trauma II in November to recapture the title, only to lose it in his first defense to Dr. Cerebro.
