World Boxing Association

The World Boxing Association (WBA) is one of four major organizations which sanction world championship boxing bouts, alongside the IBF, WBC and WBO. Founded in the United States in 1921 by thirteen state representatives as the National Boxing Association, in 1962 it changed its name in recognition of boxing's growing popularity worldwide, and began to gain other nations as members.
