THREE FEDERATIONS EXPAND
WBC MUAYTHAI STRUCTURE
6 Nov 2010
The WBC MUAYTHAI wrapped up its 2010 convention with a unanimous decision to expand its organization structure to include three federations representing the country groupings of Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.
Following the organization established by WBC boxing over the past 48 years, which has resulted in 10 active independent WBC federations, the three core federations to be included into the WBC MUAYTHAI will establish rankings within the structure of three federations that would be used by the world ranking committee to establish top 30 rankings in the 19 weight divisions.
The expanded structure also includes establishment of country committees to organize and authorize national titles. The national champions would receive priority ranking in their federation and be positioned to contest a prestigious federation championship that would be a main stepping stone to a world title.
The reshaping of the organizational structure will see official title belts positioned in a vertical advancement to the world titles.
Approved by the country committee
