WHAT DOES WBU MEAN IN ENGLISH?

World Boxing Union

The World Boxing Union is a boxing sanctioning body. The original WBU was founded in January 1995 by IBF European representative Jon W Robinson. It sanctioned boxing with various promoters worldwide The WBU had a "golden" period between 1996-2006 when its title contests were often shown live on satellite and terrestrial television. The WBU title during this time could be compared with the early days of the WBO. Until recently it was fully recognised by the British Boxing Board of Control as a legitimate sanctioning body. WBU titles were particularly well recognised in Europe and Africa. WBU titles have been held by the likes of Ricky Hatton, George Foreman, Thomas Hearns, Baby Jake Matlala, James Tony, Johnny Nelson and Micky Ward. After the death of WBU founder and President Jon W Robinson in 2004, the organisation honoured outstanding contractual fights and sanctioned various contests. In 2005 the Robinson family agreed to sell the business. The business was never sold. In 2009 the WBU ceased. The name of the WBU is currently being used by persons who have no connections, authorisations or represent the name of the WBU and Jon W Robinson its founder.
