International Boxing Organization


Integrity. Honesty. 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.

IBO Mission Statement

What the I.B.O. Is:
1. The only sanctioning body using independent objective computerized rankings.
2. We offer memberships to a very limited number of independent, honest and experienced judges and referees of the highest integrity.
3. Our main role in boxing is to rank boxers, sanction title matches which meet our championship requirements and award the IBO Championship title to the winner.
4. We do not “regulate” or “govern” boxing. We only control the IBO title. Boxing events and boxing matches are conducted under the sole supervision and control of Boxing Commissions. We abide by and are governed by the rules and laws of State and Country Commissions.
5. Simple yet exact guidelines for champions and championship eligibility.
6. Mandatory defenses are imposed on a limited basis at IBO discretion.
7. We are independent, reliable, transparent and accessible.
