This is a list of WBC world champions, showing every world champion certificated by the World Boxing Council (WBC). The WBC is one of the four major governing bodies in professional boxing, and certifies world champions in 10 different weight classes. In 1963, the year of its foundation, the WBC inaugurated titles in all divisions with the exception of light flyweight, super flyweight, super bantamweight, super middleweight and cruiserweight, which were inaugurated in the subsequent decades. The most recent title inaugurated by the WBC is in the minimumweight (also called strawweight) division in 1987.
