International Boxing Association (for-profit organization)

International Boxing Association (for-profit organization)

The International Boxing Association (IBA) is a for-profit organization that sanctions professional boxing matches and awards world and subordinate championships.


The IBA was founded in the 1990's by Dean Chance, a former professional baseball player.

"Stepping Stone"

While successful since its formation, the IBA's World championship is widely considered to be a "stepping stone" title - one which up and coming boxers win on their way to gaining the opportunity to fight for a more prestigious organization's championship title.

Men's and Women's Titles

The IBA became a pioneer among sanctioning organizations in the early 2000's when it began recognizing women's champions at the world level.
