Well back in the day there was only one title.
And than came the WBA and WBC, than the IBF and than the WBO.
I recently watched the Camacho/Haugen fight, Camacho was the WBO champ.
The HBO commentator said something like "We don't recognize this belt as a world championship belt". I was a bit surprized, but it made sense cause it was in the beginnings of the WBO, and i dont think its that highly regarded now to tell you the truth.
At the end of the day its the fighter that makes the belt, not the belt that makes the fighter.

Default World Championships

The WBA has the oldest, or I should say longest, lineage- if you go by pedigree. It can be traced back to the 1920's. It was originally the old NBA, based in New York.

The WBC was created in 1963 by a group of renegade officials of the WBA, who had numerous disgreements regarding rules and regulations, as well as with several of the past elections. They named their new sanctioning body the World Boxing Council, and in response (and out of fear that they wouldn't sound as "worldly") the NBA changed its name to the WBA, or World Boxing Association.

The IBF was founded in the early 80's (1983, I think) from a group of disaffected WBA officials who left over the presdential election of the organization. It had no real credibility until Larry Holmes embraced them, and began carrying the belt around, after being stripped of his WBC title. That was the turning point for the organization.

The WBO is recognized in Europe as a legitimate fourth sanctioning body. It is less-accepted in North America--but it will be, in time.

Some national commissions, the Japanese Athletic Commission for instance, still does not recognize the IBF. But there are only a few.

At present there are 32 sanctioning bodies in the world boxing alphabet soup. Obviously, some are more legitimate than others. I think Butterbean was the heavyweight champion of one of them--so that would be a low end one.
