In boxing, an undisputed champion is a fighter who holds all major world titles in their weight class. This can be accomplished by winning a title bout, or unifying multiple titles. A fighter can also become an undisputed champion by default, if all other major titleholders vacate their belts.
What Does It Mean To Be An Undisputed Champion ?
When a boxer is crowned the undisputed champion, it means they are the champion of all the major weight classes in boxing. This is a very prestigious title to hold, as it requires a boxer to be not only the best in their weight class, but also the best in the world.
Who are the undisputed champions in boxing
As of July 2019, the undisputed champions in boxing are: -Terence Crawford (WBO, WBC, WBA, IBF) -Errol Spence Jr. (IBF, WBC)
-Oleksandr Usyk (WBO, WBC, WBA, IBF) -Anthony Joshua (WBA, IBF, WBO) -Deontay Wilder (WBC)
These are the champions of the five major boxing organizations. To be considered the undisputed champion, a boxer must hold all five of the major titles.
Has any boxer held all 4 belts?
Yes, a boxer has held all 4 belts. In boxing, there are four major sanctioning bodies that each have their own world title in a weight class: the World Boxing Association (WBA), the World Boxing Council (WBC), the International Boxing Federation (IBF), and the World Boxing Organization (WBO). A boxer who wins titles from all four organizations in the same weight class is considered to be the true undisputed champion of that weight class.
The first boxer to ever hold all four titles simultaneously was Bernard Hopkins, who accomplished the feat in the middleweight division in 2004. Hopkins held the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles from 2004 to 2005. He is also the only boxer to ever have held all four belts for more than one year.
Hopkins was followed by Jermain Taylor, who held the titles from 2005 to 2006, and then by Israel Vazquez, who held the titles from 2007 to 2008. In 2009, Floyd Mayweather became the fourth (and so far, the last) boxer to hold all four titles simultaneously, when he won the WBO title to go along with the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles he already held. He held all four belts until he vacated the WBO title in 2013.
So, to answer the question, yes, a boxer has held all 4 belts, and there have been four different boxers who have accomplished the feat.

He was 43 years old at the time, making him the oldest boxer to ever unify the titles.
Jermain Taylor was the second man to hold all five belts, defeating Bernard Hopkins in 2005 to win the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles. He lost the belts back to Hopkins in their rematch six months later. Terence Crawford became the third man to hold all five belts when he defeated Julius Indongo in 2017 to unify the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles.

Vasyl Lomachenko became the fourth and most recent fighter to hold all five belts when he defeated Jorge Linares in 2018 to win the WBA, WBC, and Ring magazine titles. He is also the only fighter in history to win a world title in three different weight classes in just 12 professional fights.
