Boxing Organizations

Below are amateur and professional boxing organizations, the sanctioning bodies of boxing that sponsor championship fights and award titles (belts). Some consider the World Boxing Association (WBA), World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) to be the only legitimate ones and refer to the others as alphabet soup (abbreviations of sanctioning bodies that have sprung up since the 1980s that award what serious boxing fans consider worthless titles.)
