|Purpose||Boxing sanctioning organization|
The International Boxing Association (IBA) is an organization that sanctions professional boxing matches and awards world and inter-continental championships all over the world. The organization is considered to be one of the applicable organizations in boxing. The IBA has a rich history of big fights and champions.
The IBA was founded in the 1990s by Dean Chance, a former Major League Baseball pitcher. It has gained acclaim with its titles having been held by a number of notable boxers.
In June 2017 the organization announced its relaunch under the leadership of Jean-Christophe Courreges.
Some notable IBA champions include:

The World Boxing Council (WBC) is one of four major organizations which sanctions professional boxing bouts, alongside the World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Organization (WBO). Many historically high-profile bouts have been sanctioned by the organization with various notable fighters having been recognised as WBC world champions. All four organizations recognise the legitimacy of each other and each have interwoven histories dating back several decades.
The International Boxing Organization (IBO) is a non-profit organization that sanctions professional boxing matches and awards world and regional championships.
In boxing, a weight class is a measurement weight range for boxers. The lower limit of a weight class is equal to the upper weight limit of the class below it. The top class, with no upper limit, is called heavyweight in professional boxing and super heavyweight in amateur boxing. A boxing match is usually scheduled for a fixed weight class, and each boxer's weight must not exceed the upper limit. Although professional boxers may fight above their weight class, an amateur boxer's weight must not fall below the lower limit. A nonstandard weight limit is called a catchweight.
