yes, WBA is the oldest. Older than WBC.

I think WBC, IBF, and even WBO founders all came from WBA organization.


WBC is the most prestigious, IMO. :)

The WBA was founded 1921 and was called the NBA (National Boxing Association). It was founded in the US. In 1962, it became the WBA and moved its headquarters to Venezuela.

The WBC was founded 1963 in Mexico.

The IBF used to be called the USBA (United States Boxing Association). It started in 1976 with former members of the WBA. In 1983 they became the USBA-I (United States Boxing Association-International). In 1984 they became the IBF.

The WBO was founded 1988 in Puerto Rico.

All I know is that WBA is not as prestigious as WBC, WBO and IBF but perhaps more acknowledged than IBO and WBF.

Perhaps some boxing experts or enthusiasts here in pacland know the technicallity. Anyone? I wish quinito henson is on this forum


Here's how the WBA goes with its championship belts. If the WBA champion acquires another belt from the WBC, IBF and/or WBO then the "regular" WBA title is vacated. Here's how the WBA defines them:
  • If the WBA champ has one more belt (2 total) - Unified Champion
  • If the WBA champ has two more belts (3 total) - Undisputed Champion
  • All 4 belts - Super Champion

Currently, there are 4 WBA "non-regular" champions:
  • David Haye - WBA Unified Cruiserweight champ (with WBO; was Undisputed since March 2008 until he relinquished the WBC a couple of weeks ago; Firat Arslan of Germany is the "regular" champ
  • Joe Clazaghe - WBA Undisputed Super Middleweight champ (wih WBC & WBO); Anthony Mundine of Australia is the "regular" champ
  • Nate Campbell - WBA Undisputed Lightweight champ (with WBO & IBF); Yusuke Kobori of Japan just won the "regular" title from Nicaragua's Jose Alfaro last weekend
  • Christian Mijares - WBA Unified Super Flyweight champ (with WBC); the vacant "regular" title will be the one AJ Banal is going for

Hope that answers your question devondenom. For more info, look at the attached link. That is the WBA World Championships Regulations document. In page 13 you'll find the same thing I mentioned above. From page 9 to 13 you'll get more details.

then Nate Campbell is not a super champion? I thought I read an article stating that he is the WBA Lightweight super Champion..

among the four organizations, only IBF has its main office in US. I think it's in New Jersey. :)

and besides having a "regular", unified, undisputed, and Super champion, the WBA also has interim champions if not mistaken... haha, more sanctioning fees!

dont get me wrong but i think there should only b one champion in a particular division. just like the old days. because by then all boxers who won the belt would then be the best.

today it is so hard to acknowledge a champ.. even pacman, nakakailito.
i believe wbc is the greater body pero yung iba dapat mawala.

even ring champs dont help.

just like nba playoffs says



THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!
