In accordance with the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act, Sanctioning bodies must publicly disclose their rankings criteria.
 

The Universal Boxing Organization™ recognizes the BoxRec Computer Rankings. BoxRec ranks all active fighters upon their results and activity. The rankings are independently calculated and the UBO have no input into the positions of the boxers.

There is no human opinion involved in the BoxRec Computer rankings. After every bout, the ranking of the two boxers involved are changed depending on the official result of the bout. Boxers get more points for defeating opponents with good results/records, than they would for defeating opponents of lesser quality, and will consequently move up or down the rankings depending on the opponents he or she defeat, draw with, or lose to.

To box for a UBO World Championship a male boxer must have a positive win-loss-draw record of no less than ten bouts and be ranked within the top-300 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-100 if their recent results and/or records justify this. If a boxer holds a UBO regional, International or Inter-Continental title, or has otherwise competed at championship level, he may on a case-by-case basis be approved even if he has not had ten bouts.

To box for a UBO World Championship a female boxer must be ranked within the top-25 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-10 if their recent results and/or records justify this.

To box for a UBO Inter-Continental title male boxers must have a positive win-loss-draw record and be ranked within the top-400 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-200 if their recent results and/or records justify this.

To box for a UBO Inter-Continental title female boxers must be ranked within the top-35 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-20 if their recent results and/or records justify this.

To box for a UBO International or regional title a male boxer must have a positive win-loss-draw record, or have won his last fight, or be ranked within the top-500 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-200 if their recent results and/or records justify this.

To box for a UBO International or regional title a female boxer must be ranked within the top-50 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-25 if their recent results and/or records justify this.

To box for a UBO Youth title male boxers can be maximum 25 years old, must have a positive win-loss-draw record, and must be ranked within the top-450 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-100 if their recent results and/or records justify this.

To box for a UBO Youth title female boxers can be maximum 25 years old and must be ranked within the top-40 of the BoxRec computer rankings. The UBO reserves the right to reject boxers ranked outside the top-20 if their recent results and/or records justify this.

Due to the fact that missing results can affect a ranking, and since BoxRec doesn’t receive all results from certain countries, the UBO may approve or reject a boxer based on his documented and confirmed record provided by his licensing boxing federation, should such record justify a higher ranking.

Since BoxRec does not rank boxers who haven’t fought in one year, the UBO may, at its discretion, approve a boxer without a BoxRec ranking if the boxer’s record justifies approval.
