WBC is generally considered the most prestigious, then the IBF and WBA. Those are the three titles a fighter needs to win to be deemed "undisputed" (though a bunch of fighters call themselves undisputed; like David Haye; without winning them all). WBO comes fourth. No other belts matter. Except for the Ring magazine belt which the Bible of boxing awards to the supposed "best" fighters in each division, the linear champions.

to be honest, all of them are ****. each organization is corrupt and will gladly manipulate for you if you can get them money. If i was a pro fighter, i really wouldn't fight for belts, but more for the glory of taken down big prime names.

The Ring belt. They haven't done anything yet to lose their credibility.

Even if Oscar has the control of the magazine, he isn't a Ring champion. No vacant ring belts have been decided in stupid matchups.
The only vacant one since Oscar bought the magazine was Pacquiao vs. Marquez, and if you don't think that was justified, you are out of your mind.
The Ring belt has been using the same rules it always has.
Like warp said, it hasn't lost any credibility to this point.
That being said, the Ring belt is clearly the most legitimate... it is always the linear champion or a guy who has set himself apart from the crowd if there was no previous champion.
Other than that, it is considered that the WBC, WBA and IBF are the best, closely followed by the WBO. The WBO is still the "new guy" of the group, but is becoming more and more recognized as legitimate.
