IBO SUBMISSION OF ALTERATIONS TO THE TOP RATINGS

New rules affecting our ratings.

Following suggestions made by the Association of Boxing Commissions the IBO have decided that in order for a fighter to maintain his top 35 rating and eligibility to fight for our world title a boxer must have engaged in a 'compliant contest' over the last 18 months. A compliant contest would involve an opponent who was rated previously or after the fight within the first 50 boxers of that weight division. Fighters who are not compliant with these rules will have points reduced until such time as they are outside of the first 35.

IBO Championship Rules & Regulations

New Period: JULY 2014    Old Period: JUNE 2014

A full detailed ranking can be viewed on our web site http://www.iboboxing.com

Any further information or clarification for JUNE be obtained by emailing ibopres@aol.com

If you require to receive an electronic statement in accordance with section 11 of the Muhammad Ali Boxing Act of 1999. Please email ibopres@aol.com to register. Any grievances or appeals JUNE be directed to the iboratings@aol.com . At all times forward your complete boxing record.

Rating Changes within the first 10 (since JUNE 2014)

No change is shown to a boxer moving upwards or downwards where he has moved in sequence with other fighters; i.e. just moved up one place because of another fighter's loss or inactivity. A rating change is defined as one whereby a boxer ascends his position by virtue of a significant win or descends by a significant loss. Fighters can win and not move up the ratings if the win was not substantial to add a significant number of points.

"MUHAMMAD ALI BOXING REFORM ACT"
PUBLIC DISLOSURES

(A) A complete description of the organization's ratings criteria, policies and general sanctioning fee schedule:

1. Organization's Ratings Criteria: The I.B.O. uses a computer-based system for boxing rankings. The computer ranks all active fighters upon their fight history alone. When they fight, the results of that fight are fed into a database. The rankings are independently calculated and neither the I.B.O. nor any of its officers have any input into the positions of the boxers. There is no human opinion involved in our computer rankings. The computer program was developed over an eight-year span and is purely results driven. There is no subjectivity involved in the computer system.

2. General Sanctioning Fee Schedule:

+ TRAVEL AND LODGING FOR THE OFFICIALS.
ALL FEES BELOW ARE EXCLUSIVE OF THE ANNUAL PROMOTER'S REGISTRATION FEE ($2,000.00) FOR WORLD TITLES

PROMOTER'S REGISTRATION FEE ($500.00) FOR JUNIOR TITLES

ANY BELT SHIPPED OVERSEAS WILL INCUR ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COSTS, IN ADDITION TO THE BELT FEE.

Any grievances or appeals should be directed to either IBOPRES@aol.com or iboratings@aol.com.

(D) List and Business Addresses of the Organization's Officials Who Vote on the Ratings of Boxers:

As stated above, the I.B.O.'s rankings are not based upon subjective opinions or voting of I.B.O. officials. We employ an independent, well-developed computer rankings system, which is accurate, efficient and unbiased. No one in the I.B.O. can change the position of any computer ranked fighter.
