*A lot of people still don't recognize the International Boxing Organization as a legitimate world sanctioning body, but I do. Their belt has only been around the waist of the real heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis beat Evander Holyfield in 1999. In general I find the IBO to be a square dealing, uncorrupt, respectable institution which only proclaims 1 world champion per division (unlike the 3 the WBA often has). The history of who's worn their light heavyweight title is equally as impressive as heavyweight. But detailing this division by division is worth another piece of writing altogether...
