 World Boxing Council - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The WBC's green championship belt portrays the flags of all of the countries it represents; the flags of the original 12 member-nations are displayed on the belt’s ovular, gold center-plate (surrounding a boxer raising his arm in victory).
In 1983, the WBC took the unprecedented step of reducing the distance of its world championship bouts, from 15 rounds to 12 -- a move other organizations soon followed (for boxers' safety).
Rocchigiani immediately filed a lawsuit against the WBC in a U.S. federal (New York City) court, claiming that the organization's actions both were contrary to their own rules, and injurious to his earning potential (due to diminished professional stature).

 HON Allergy Glossary White Blood Cell
Leukocytes or white blood cells (WBC) are cells in the blood that are involved in defending the body against infective organisms and foreign substances.
White blood cells are the principal components of the immune system and function by destroying "foreign" substances such as bacteria and viruses.
If the number of leukocytes is abnormally low (a condition known as leukopenia), infection is more likely to occur and it is more difficult for the body to get rid of the infection.

 WBC-IBF Proxy War in Africa by Moses Muglau (October 28, 2000)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The WBC and the IBF are major players in Africa’s boxing “decline,” in the professional field, whose dominant beneficiaries remain American boxers.
Much as the WBC or IBF can claim to have “dug deep into their coffers” to support development (or improvement) of African boxers, a round-up in East and Central Africa has yielded quite more embarrassing moments because of the friction between the two world’s boxing body rulers.

 WBC Morphology
A manual WBC differential count is performed by having a person trained in peripheral blood morphology review the stained blood smear and manually count 100 white cells (or 50 cells in the case of severe leukopenia).
The advantages of the automated WBC differential are speed, low cost per test, and the precision from the large number of cells counted.
The absolute numbers for total WBC count and each type of leukocyte are in thousands per cubic millimeter (or alternatively, per microliter).
