The International Boxing Association (IBA) is an organization that sanctions professional boxing matches and awards world and inter-continental championships.
The IBA's world championship is widely considered to be a "stepping stone" title, one which boxers win on their way to fight for a more prestigious world title. It has gained acclaim with its titles having been held by a number of notable boxers.
Some notable IBA champions include:
The IBA became a pioneer among sanctioning organizations in the early 2000s when it began recognizing women's champions at the world level.
