1-3 WBA (now called "WBA Super"), WBC, IBF - no order
4 WBO
5 the rest (WBA Regular, IBO, even NABO that is part of the WBO)

And there are also lower titles than WBA Regular and IBO. You only need to keep in mind that WBA (Super), WBC and IBF are the best, most prestigious titles. And then the WBO, the rest are kinda not like real world titles.

They all suck, and are all just that, a "title".

The Ring Belt for me. It looks the best and seems to mean the most.
Other than that:

1) WBA Super
2) WBC
3) IBF
4) WBO

There is no difference anymore between WBA Super, WBC and IBF, just maybe the age. WBA was formed in 1962, WBC in 1963 and IBF in 1976.

There is difference between the 3 big ones and WBO, but WBO formed in 1988 is still a world title.

All the fighters always say the green belt (WBC) is the best. It is the best looking, but it sucks that the organization is so damn corrupt.

The one everyone shot for was the WBC, but they lost their luster just like the WBA and WBO. The IBF is the only one right now without all the hoopla.

I'd have to say the WBC....has the longest lineage, the best contenders and most the time when a fighter is the lineal champ they hold this belt

Well some fighters are good enough to take the time to win them all individually so it doesn't matter

I just rank the WBA first because they're the most equally biased sanctioning body. WBO favors Puerto Ricans/Europeans, WBC favors Mexicans/Latin Americans, the IBF favors blacks, and the WBA will throw a belt on anyone. It's close, and none of them are very dignified organizations, but I have to go with the body that doesn't play favorites in who they're biased for.

It doesn't matter what champions had an organization. It matters who are the current champions of the organization. And WBA, WBC and IBF have equal champions in each division, practically the creme. WBO not really but it is still recognized.

Of course the WBA is the oldest but that does not matter anymore and I will give you a logical argument. An organization that would have had Foreman and Ali for example its champions and now not the creme in each division it would be considered not the best.

And they used to favour but not anymore so much. Just take a look on IBF now for example!
