The box It is an entire industry that moves a lot of money, but the soul of the sport is in competing for the belts and the issue is that many times we do not know how many there are. That’s why in LEFT PUNCH we answer a questionhow many boxing championships are there?

From the outset we explain that we will only take into account the four recognized organizations: World Boxing Council (CMB), World Boxing Organization (OMB), International Boxing Federation (FIB) and World Boxing Association (AMB). We will also take into account the magazine belt The Ring.

How many boxing championships are there?

The International Boxing Hall of Fame recognizes four organizations that can sanction world boxing championships. In males, all four organizations have the same belts.

The men’s world championships are:

  • Straw (47.6kg or 105lb)
  • Mini fly (49kg or 108lb)
  • Fly (50.8kg or 112lb)
  • Super fly (52.2kg or 115lb)
  • Rooster (53.5kg or 118lb)
  • Super bantamweight (55.3kg or 122lb)
  • Feather (57.2kg or 126lb)
  • Super feather (59kg or 130lb)
  • Light (61.2kg or 135lb)
  • Super light (63.5kg or 140lb)
  • Welter (66.7kg or 147lb)
  • Super welterweight (69.9kg or 154lb)
  • Medium (72.6kg or 160lb)
  • Super middle (76.2kg or 168lb)
  • Medium heavy (79.4kg or 175lb)
  • Cruise (90.7kg or 200lb)
  • Heavy (90.7kg + or 200lb +)

In the last year, the AMB has retired some titles, before there were three champions by weight: interim, regular and super champion. The plan is to eliminate the interns and start ordering fights so that the regular champion at some point would meet the super champion.

Linear champion

It refers to the boxer who is the best of all in his category, another can win the linear title only if he defeats the reigning champion in the ring. It is described as: “man who defeated man.” The term was developed by boxing fans, who did not agree that each body only recognized its champion.

Some boxers consider themselves to be linear champions as a personal achievement, for example Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis.
