WBC Heavyweight Champion
The World Boxing Council is one of the four major governing bodies in professional boxing, and certifies World Champions in 17 different weight classes. In 1963, the year of its foundation, the WBC inaugurated titles in all divisions with the exception of the Light flyweight, Super flyweight, Super bantamweight, Super middleweight and Cruiserweight, who were inaugurated in the subsequent decades. The most recent title inaugurated by the WBC is the Minimumweight (also called Strawweight) in 1987.
