The Pacific Coast Heavyweight Title lineage is a little messy. I put this together initially so I figure out what was going on. Oakland and other towns started differing from Fresno at the end of 1940, but it looks like the Fresno lineage stuck and everyone forgot about Pantaleon Manlapig's reign (he defended the crown in San Jose and Oakland two months - or more - after he lost it in Fresno).

The lineage Hisa was given is a bit off. Some of the dates of title changes don't match up and some of the order is a bit out of whack. I don't know if any one person was in charge of the title or if the individual cities were trusted not to mess it up too much as there several really short reigns.

Lots of title changes occurred in San Francisco so unfortunately there is still several changes that need to be confirmed and there might other short reigns that are missing.

I'm not sure who researched Salinas for 1940 and 1942 San Francisco comes from Scott Teal. Any other San Francisco references come from papers I've looked up.

Some lineage may still be off. If it doesn't say 'lost title' I can't confirm who got got the belt next. I'm relying on Hisa's San Francisco title change dates to just that.

Most of the 1940s changes are from the WTH book. I've been working on the changes from the 50s, using the Newspaper Archive website (the Oakland paper many times mention what happened in SF as well).

Like you say, it's very confusing.

Thanks for the list!

Jahno.
