Full list of the 42 current World Boxing Council champions

WBC title

World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman recently offered a full list of the 42 WBC champions as the sport moves into a busy 2021.

Including interim belt holders, and through nineteen weight divisions, Tyson Fury leads as the heavyweight ruler.

In the lightweight class, there are currently four boxers holding straps. They are Teofimo Lopez as the Franchise champion, plus Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia, and Katie Taylor in the women’s division.

Super bantamweight also sees four champions, although one of those is champion-in-recess.

Luis Nery, Yamileth Mercado, Rey Vargas (In Recess), and Rachel Ball (Interim) hold positions at 126 pounds.

“WBC Champions line up. We start 2021 with great talent and many world champions at the WBC, and it will undoubtedly be a great year for our sport,” said Sulaiman.

What an explosive way to begin this 2021, which the World Boxing Council has designated “The Year of Boxing,” as we will celebrate life with a large number of anniversaries of historic dates derived from our sport,” he added.
