Oscar Valdez Creates A Guinness World Record For The Largest Boxing Class
Mexico City makes history as it holds the largest boxing class in the world.
On June 18, thousands of people descended to Zocalo, the main square in central Mexico City. According to the reports, 14,299 people took part in the class, which was taught by 15 popular Mexican boxers. Those boxers included the likes of Mariana “Barby” Juárez and Ana María “Guerrera” Torres.
During the 30-minute boxing sessions of insane intensity, the participants wore green, red and white shirts, indicating the colors of a Mexican Flag. Oscar Valdez was extremely influential in making this objective a reality.
“When I saw the call for the participants, I said to myself ‘I’m going to participate’. I’m very excited to see everyone coming together, for the love of sports and boxing,” said Rosa Aguilera, one of the participants involved in the record-breaking class.
This event was hosted by the Mexico City government and the World Boxing Council as it broke the Guinness World Record for being the biggest boxing class. Previously, this feat was in the hands of the Russian Boxing Federation when 3,250 individuals participated in a boxing routine conducted by lga Saitova and Alexei Tischenko at Moscow’s Red Square five years ago.
