About the WBAN Belts: In 2004, WBAN made a decision to have
independent world title belts for only the very top women boxers
in our computerized and independent world ratings, created and
produced by Dee Williams.
Full details of WBAN Belts
We were offered many cards for the WBAN belts from 2004 – 2007,
but the offers we had for women to fight for the belts were not
approved by our independent WBAN Board, who makes that decision
to approve a fight or not.
In June of 2008, on a Pay-Per-View card, we pro debuted
the WBAN belts in two world title matches between Holly Holm vs.
Mary Jo Sanders (both ranked #1 in catch weight categories), and
Chevelle Hallback vs. Jeannine Garside (both ranked #1 in catch
weight categories). Holly Holm and Hallback were our history
trailblazers for winning the first-ever WBAN Belts. From there
we have had many fights with the best, including a first-ever
WBAN championship taking place in France between Myriam Lamare
vs. Ann Marie Saccurato.
