Since the 19th century, there has been widespread interest in boxing. To regulate the sport, the National Boxing Association was formed. Its job was to determine contenders and set up championship bouts. As a result of their efforts, the first official championship fight took place between Jack Dempsey and Georges Carpentier.
Boxing championships are held once every two years under the umbrella of the International Boxing Association (AIBA). The most important events in the world of boxing are the Olympics and the World Amateur Boxing championships, both of which are governed by the AIBA.
The origin of boxing championships date back to 1974, in Cuba. At that time, the events were open only for men. It would be another twenty five years before the women would be featured. Since 2006, the event has been split into two formats, with a one year for men’s events and the other year for women events.
Along the way there have been some other changes as well. These include the ‘light middleweight division’ (71 kg) that was dropped from the competition in 2003. In 2011, the ‘featherweight division’ (57 kg) was also removed from contention.
With the spread of professional boxing, the bodies supervising its sanctioning have also increased. Right now the sanctioning authorities include the World Boxing Council, the World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation. These bodies have their own rules and regulations through which they award fights and ranking points to fighters. In addition to these three, ‘The Ring’ magazine also acts as an unofficial body.
In professional boxing, the fighters are divided according to their weight classifications. Currently there are seventeen weight classifications. From the current generation, the fighter to have won the most number of titles in different weight divisions is Manny Pacquiao, who holds championship belts in eight categories. Besides him, the brothers from Ukraine, Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko have also won heavyweight titles in five weight divisions. Another famous fighter who has won titles in the welterweight and super welterweight division is Floyd Mayweather, Jr. So if you are a fan of boxing and want to watch these athletes in action, then do not waste another moment; buy World Championship Boxing tickets as soon as possible.
