• Integrity • Independent • Transparent
The IBO's mandate is to bring these qualities to boxing. The record shows that we've been – and continue to be independent, respected & successful. That's why mega world champions like Lennox Lewis, Wladimir Klitschko, Roy Jones Jr, Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Gennady Golovkin, Anthony Joshua and so many others have been proud to wear our belt. And that's why the IBO's objective, comprehensive computerized top 100 rankings remain the most reliable in the sport.
CHAMPION OF THE MONTH
Born in Guantanamo, Cuba, Erislandy Lara began his boxing career in his homeland when he was a teenager. He was captain of the Cuban national amateur team, winning a gold medal in the welterweight division at the 2005 World Championships as well as three consecutive Cuban national championships from 2005 to 2007. Lara turned pro in 2008 after defecting Cuba and moved to America over the years. "The American Dream” is one of the smoothest, most elusive fighters in the sport and became two time IBO World Champion in August 2020.
