Mexico is known for producing great boxers as some of the top boxers in the world, like Canelo Alvarez, Andy Ruiz Jr., and Jaime Munguia all belong to the ‘Land of Enchantment’. So it came as no surprise when its capital was part of the largest boxing class ever.

A boxing class hosted by 15 Mexican boxers recently set the new Guinness World Record for the largest boxing class in history. The event was attended by over 14,000 people easily beating the previous record of 3000 which took place in Moscow in 2017.
