Honesty. Integrity. Independent.

From its inception, the IBO's mandate has been to bring these qualities to boxing. The record shows that we’ve been – and continue to be independent & successful. That's why world class champions like Lennox Lewis, Wladimir Klitschko, Ricky Hatton, 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.

When you associate with the IBO, you send a message to boxing. It's a statement of your commitment to maintaining credibility in the greatest, purest contest of human ability in the world. We're "The Champion Of Integrity", and we invite you to be part of our success.

IBO Mission Statement

What the I.B.O. Is:
1. The only sanctioning body using independent objective computerized rankings.
2. We abide by and work in conjunction with the rules and laws of State and Country Commissions.
3. We license only fair, honest and experienced judges, referees and commissioners of the highest integrity. (Licenses limited to 35 judges and 25 referees.)
4. Simple yet exact guidelines for champions.
5. We limit our role in boxing to ranking boxers, sanctioning matches authorized by our championship rules and awarding the championship title to the winner.
6. We are independent, reliable and accessible.
What the I.B.O. Is Not:
1. We can not use subjective ratings based upon politics, favoritism or pressure from promoters.
2. Mandatory defenses are only imposed on a limited basis.
3. We do not “regulate” boxing or boxers. That is left to the local commissions. We control only the title, not the event.
