The World Boxing Foundation split from the original World Boxing Federation in 2004 after the original organisation--led by American Ron Scalf, and founded in 1988 in Bristol, Tennessee--crumbled after a legal battle with Nigerian fighter Bash Ali.

Former Australian pro Mick Croucher then stepped in, forming the new WBF, replacing the word "Federation" with "Foundation." Croucher, a property developer from Victoria, has set about cleaning up the image of the WBF. In 2004, he clocked 150,000 miles throughout the world trying to rejuvenate the company name.
