Honesty. Integrity. Trust.
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 – successful. That's why world class talent like
Lennox Lewis, Wladimir Klitschko, Ricky Hatton, Manny Pacquiao, and so many others have
been proud to wear our belt. And that’s why the IBO's objective,
comprehensive computerized rankings remain the most reliable and
honest 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 the revolution.
