Super featherweight (also called junior lightweight) is a weight division in professional boxing. The maximum weight for this division is 130 pounds or 59 kilograms.

The Super featherweight division was established by the New York Walker Law in 1920, although first founded by the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) in 1930. The first English champion was "Battling Kid" Nelson in 1914 who lost his title to Benny Berger in 1915. Artie O’Leary also won this title in 1917. This weight class appeared into two distinct historical periods, from 1921–1933 and 1960–present.

Notable fighters to hold championship titles at this weight have been Flash Elorde, Alexis Argüello, Azumah Nelson, Julio César Chávez, Diego Corrales, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Érik Morales, Marco Antonio Barrera, Acelino Freitas, Juan Manuel Márquez, Oscar de la Hoya, Rocky Lockridge, Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner.
