Why does boxing have so many world championships? (Part 1)

Sometimes when you watch professional boxing, you will see both boxers when the upper station is introduced as the current world champion. The only difference lies in the championship belt they hold. Why is that?

If football is under the supreme administration of a governing body, the World Football Federation, or FIFA, boxing does not have such a unity. The sport has up to four major associations, which are widely recognized and all have their competition system, through which they will award their championship belts.

The world professional boxing has 4 largest federations

Specifically, currently, the world professional boxing has 4 largest federations, namely WBC (World Boxing Council), WBO (World Boxing Organization), WBA (Hiep World Boxing Association, and IBF (International Boxing Federation).

However, in the 1960s, the two federations WBA and WBC were the most successful, surpassing other boxing organizations to become two world-class federations, recognized by the global boxing village as the main organization of the sport.

Boxer Anthony Joshua has acquired all four world championships

With the effective management and organization of WBA and WBC competitions, World Boxing is increasingly becoming a money-making business. But also because 2 world-class organizations are living together well, the consequence is that more people want to be part of the lucrative piece of boxing called boxing.

Because a professional boxing match only takes place quickly, and can even end after 1-2 minutes if any puncher gets knocked out early, plus the huge revenue comes mainly in matches. World Championship title competition, so the need to organize top matches always flourished.

Therefore, in the ’80s, two more boxing federations appeared, IBF (founded in 1983) and WBO (founded in 1988) that rose to share the leading role of the boxing world, making the emergence of New championship belt. And so, there are currently four world-class federations sharing a piece of cake worth billions of dollars of professional boxing.

Top 3 boxing athletes that have the most powerful punches

KO plays always bring enthusiasm to the audience. And Boxing has many legends with a huge force to contribute to the beautiful KO phase.

1. Ron Lyle

Ron Lyle was a martial artist in the golden age of heavy boxing – the 70s. It can be said that he was the best fighter among those who could not get their hands on the championship.

Victims who endured his blows include Muhammad Ali. Ali easily displayed superior technique and speed when playing against Ron Lyle. However, whenever he was hit by an opponent, Mahammad Ali was really stunned.

But the most worthy match of Ron Lyle must mention a mighty battle between him and George Foreman – a puncher also has terrible power. The battle between these powerful punching machines is one of the most glorious heavyweight battles of all time.

Although Wladimir Klitschko is a technically pruned puncher, the power of his right hand is still truly frightening. The nickname “Dr. Hammer of Steel” also has a reason.

Wladimir Klitschko often entered the game with a slow pace, he also never tried to search for KO so that he was in a situation of unnecessary attack. But 53 KO games out of a total of 64 wins is too much for a technical puncher.

2. Gerry Cooney

Larry Holmes vs Gerry Cooney was a fiery battle between monsters. Cooney suffered the first loss of his career through a TKO from Larry Holmes. Sadly, after that match, Cooney was no longer himself.

However, keep in mind that he defeated Ken Norton and Ron Lyle in just one round before coming to Larry Holmes. His moves are usually blown and left hooks to his stomach.

3. Joe Luis

Perhaps very few people today have come across the name Joe Luis. Although Luis retired more than 60 years ago, this legendary name still has punches worth learning. Joe Luis held the heavyweight championship for 12 years with 25 successful belt defenses.

Joe Luis’ right-hand shots always carry a formidable force. The counter phases are well timing or the intentional attacks are set up in advance. All of them serve a single purpose – to get his right fist in the face of an opponent.
