Boxing is real, unlike Professional wrestling.
Boxing competitions match similar weight opponents against each other. In order to do this, boxers fit in to certain weight classes. The classes vary slightly between boxing organisations but usually go Flyweight, Bantamweight, Featherweight, Lightweight, Welterweight, Middleweight, Heavyweight from lightest to heaviest.
There are 4 major boxing organisations each of which has a title in each weight class.
- (IBF) - International Boxing Federation
- (WBA) - World Boxing Association
- (WBC) - World Boxing Council
- (WBO) - World Boxing Organization
