The (Pacific) Northwest Boxing Association (United States) (NWBA) was formed in 1952 by Ted Walker; it formerly was the old Pacific Northwest (PNW) Title. In 1986 Richard Jackson took it over and formed the American Professional Boxing Association. The first title was won in Lewiston, Idaho by Mike Grow , who was the son of the first PNW champion James W. Grow.

Since then title fights have been held in Idaho, Montana, California, and Washington. Most are held at the Lucky Eagle Casino in Rochester, WA, with Benny Georgino as matchmaker.

The current (2006) President is Manuel Alberes of Caldwell, Idaho; Championship Chairman is Richard Jackson of Lewiston, Idaho.
