Disputed Branch

When appearing on ZERO-ONE (Japanese promotion) show, Filoso was billed as WWA World Junior Light Heavyweight Champion and was defending this title (perhaps using a prior version of the belt.) Filoso never had actually won this championship and lost it immediately. The fake championship continued to be defended under that name, until it was eventually vacated and abandoned. ZERO-ONE once again revived the title on July 24, 2007 with a wrestler named THE ZEST defeating Osamu Namiguchi to win the fake title. He then won it from himself as his new persona NOIZE.

This championship has previously, and incorrectly, been listed as the UWA World Welterweight Championship.
