WBC Boxing

World Boxing Council (WBC) started in 1963 and is headquartered in Mexico. They are one of the major organisations which sanction world championship boxing bouts. The organisation works continuously towards projecting Boxing as the No.1 sport in the world and thereby protect the fighters in all aspects.


WBC was formed on 14th February 1963 as then President of Mexico called for an international organisation that would unify all the boxing commissions around the globe. The aim was to expand the sport of boxing to new heights. WBC initially has just 11 representatives with US, U.K, France, Mexico and Brazil among the major ones. Currently the organisation has 164 representatives.


Credit should be given to WBC, as its first set of rules has revolutionised the sport of Boxing and helped in the growth of the sport. Some of the changes like reduction of the rounds in each fight from 15 to 12, official weigh-ins and the creation of divisions were actually introduced by WBC as a part of its rule set. The introduction of doping tests were also introduced by the organisation so as to make the sport clean and free from allegations.


WBC places at most importance to the safety, health and respect for each fighter who steps into the ring to entertain the public regardless of the potential risks he/she may face. For the last 48 years, the organisation conducts annual conventions featuring fighters, judges and officials from all over the world. The last convention saw many changes being introduced to the sport. One of them was the use of Oxygen during fights as the boxers were given access to it during the one minute break after each round. Also a new certification for gloves were also brought in to ensure maximum security for the fighters.


The WBC has also created a charitable trust known as 'WBC Cares' which is aimed to spread all-around the world the message of hope and also inspiring others through the top athletes. The fighters visit orphanages, hospitals and youth centers with the aim of spreading the message.


Apart from this there are some of the new changes that were carried out by WBC was the introduction of a new form of world championships known as 'Premier' which will bring in the unification of all the titles from the major organisations.


Also each fighter was provided an International boxing passport with their respective medical data which will help them avoid major injuries in the future. It will also protect the boxers from any accidents that could happen in the ring as well.
