We used the beginning of this new year to make a fresh start. We vacated all titles that were not defended in over 1 year, in order to create fresh opportunities for
other boxers who also qualify to fight for one of our titles. We hope to fill the majority of our vacant titles in 2013!
Furthermore the GBU stopped using the 143lbs weightclass and changed the names of some weightclasses. Besides the WIBF, the GBU was the only sanctiong body using
an extra 143lbs weightclass and thus naming some weightclasses differently from other sanctioning bodies. This could cause confusion and posed a problem in regards to ratings.
