The World Boxing Foundation was formed in 2004 to sanction championship boxing contests but has a history dating back to 1988 via its predecessor the World Boxing Federation. The WBF was originally formed by Larry Carrier (the founder of Bristol Motor Speedway) and Ron Scalf in Bristol, Tennessee but is now owned and operated from Melbourne, Australia by Mick Croucher.

It is a lightly regarded boxing sanctioning body whose "world champions" often lack widespread recognition. WBF titles are often a stepping-stone for fighters who progress to more prestigious titles.

The light-heavyweight title was held by two well-known boxers; Roy Jones, Jr. and Antonio Tarver.[citation needed]
