EBA

The first version European Boxing Association was a failed attempt at establishing a new European boxing body after the International Boxing Union and Associazione Pugilistica Professionistica Europea became extinct during World War II. The British Board of Boxing Control and the newly-formed French FFB tried to constitute a new European body--the European Boxing Association (EBA)--but other countries protested, because the two veteran countries would have reintroduced the principle that the European Champion would be decided by a bout between British and French champions. Instead, in 1946, from the ashes of the APPE, the European Boxing Union (EBU) came into being.

In 2002, the European Boxing Association was revived to crown European champions in all recognized weight categories. This new version of the EBA was affiliated with the World Boxing Association, such that the holders of an EBA belt were guaranteed a top 15 ranking with the WBA. It sanctioned titles fights until 2012 when it became extinct.
