Best Answer

The WBA is the oldest sanctioning body in boxing today, however the WBC for its iconic 'green belt' is probably considered the most prestigious belt to win. For any hardcore boxing fan, there are way too many titles in boxing these days as it is, let alone the additions of 'interim' and 'super' champions, the IBF is the only sanctioning body that recognizes only 1 world champion and doesnt deal with the alphabet title nonsense, this is why most boxing pundits see them as the most respected, the WBC in this sense are abit of a joke, having even silver titles and youth silver titles. The wbo isnt universally recognized as one of the 'big 3' however is considered a world title as such. So to answer your question i would say IBF-WBC-WBA-WBO.

Just the important ones:

WBA - World Boxing Association

WBC - World Boxing Council

WBO - World Boxing Organization

IBF - International Boxing Federation

Not a sanctioning body but "The ring magazine" is the most prestigious one as far as rankings goes.
