IBF Boxing

The International Boxing Federation (IBF) is one of the main organisations in the world which aids in the growth of Pro-Boxing. The organisation has the authority to conduct world title fights around the globe.


The IBF was first known as United States Boxing Association and was renamed in the year of 1983.


It has been organised under the laws of the State of New Jersey. The headquarters of the organisation is also located in the state.


The IBF was formed with the main objective of maintaining efficiency and uniformity while supervising Pro-Boxing and also assisting and promoting the growth of the sport.


The organisation plays a major role in spreading awareness about the rules related to Pro-boxing and also suggesting the standards for the supervision of the sport. IBF also prepares the rankings list each month for all the fighters in 17 different weight classes, and the information is made available to the public as well.


IBF has created titles not just in US, but all across the globe to give upcoming fighters a chance to participate. This has created regional and cross-regional competitions which in turn has given the athletes an opportunity to work their way up the ladder and reach the coveted titles.


IBF places focus on the different aspects connected with the sport as it aims to improve Pro-boxing. The main concern for the organisation remains consistency while officiating fights.

Every year, the IBF holds professional seminars related to judging and refereeing of bouts in order to achieve uniformity during fights. It also makes it mandatory for all the officials to attend the seminar to achieve the goal.


Apart from organizing the fights and focusing on the consistency of refereeing these bouts, IBF also considers the health of the fighters as one of its major priorities. Every year during the annual convention of IBF, a medical seminar is conducted not just for the fighters, but also for the people closely associated with them. Proper education is given to everyone concerned about how to detect injuries before, during and after a fight. Precautionary measures to avoid such injuries are also taught to aid the fighters and help increase the longevity of their careers.


The IBF maintains giving upcoming and aspiring athletes in both US and around the globe a stage, and to recognize their talent publicly, are its main objectives. The ranking system is one of the ways the IBF uses for this as it helps the boxers to earn worldwide fame. The system has also contributed to the continuous growth, life span and success of the sport around the world.
