- International Boxing Association (for-profit organization)
The International Boxing Association (IBA) is a for-profit organization that sanctions professional
boxingmatches and awards world and subordinatechampionships.
The IBA was founded in the 1990's by
Dean Chance, a former professional baseballplayer.
While successful since its formation, the IBA's World championship is widely considered to be a "stepping stone" title - one which up and coming boxers win on their way to gaining the opportunity to fight for a more prestigious organization's championship title.
Men's and Women's Titles
The IBA became a pioneer among sanctioning organizations in the early 2000's when it began recognizing women's champions at the world level.
