The European Boxing Association, EBA, have filed a lawsuit against the WBA in a Spanish court for 1.5 million EUR. The WBA ousted the EBA in 2011 for reasons they never made public.

The EBA was first formed as a regional body, "the Euro-African Boxing Association", in the late 90?s but soon the "African" part disappeared, which lead to a conflict with the European Boxing Union, the EBU. The EBA was going pretty strong though with the support of the WBA but somewhere around 2005 the EBA got into a conflict with the main body and was eventually locked out. The organization never folded but was more or less out of business when there was a sudden comeback a few years ago and while the EBA never was a subtitle to the WBA there was a close collaboration - that came to an sudden end in 2011. No-one outside of the inner circle appears to know anything about the reasons for the disputes.

The WBA have now created a continental title but this far there have been very little activity.
