World Boxing Organization TicketsThe World Boxing Organization, or WBO, is one of the four universally recognized international governing bodies in boxing. Since 1989, the WBO has awarded championships and ranked boxers in 17 different weight classes. Founded in 1988 in Puerto Rico, the WBO is the youngest of these three organizations, yet is already able to count some of the greatest names in the entire history of boxing on its list of champions. Considering the impressive roster of both current and former champions and fighters that it is responsible for ranking, WBO-sanctioned events are typically great crowd-pleasers where armies of eager boxing fans can line up to see the most skilled fighters in the world compete for the honor and glory that goes with being the best. The fights featuring the biggest names have typically taken place in enormous sporting arenas with seating room for tens of thousands of people. Throughout its relatively short but already illustrious history, the WBO has worked to put on the fights that hardcore boxing fans crave. You can be part of the action when you buy World Boxing Organization tickets online at StubHub.
