Occidente Lightweight Championship
The Occidente Lightweight Championship is one of the state championships of the Guadalajara box y lucha libre commission. It's controlled by the Guadalajara branch of CMLL and almost exclusively defended at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara.
This weight class championship appears to be defunct. There are no records of title matches since 1999.
