Chance to join Guinness World Record attempt

March 10, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


England Boxing members with overseas connections are being invited to take part in an official Guinness World Record-breaking attempt next week.

The record will attempt to gather the most nationalities ever to take part in a single boxing session next Wednesday, 18th March.

It will take place at the Copper Box Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, E20 3HB, where London’s Olympic Qualifiers are being held from 14th to 24th March.

The session is fitness-based, completely safe and non-contact, suitable for all ages and abilities and will be led by qualified England Boxing coaches.

Organisers are looking to sign up people who hold current passports/ID cards from one of the UN member states (dual nationality British/Other is fine).

The list of eligible countries can be found here.

If you’d like to take part, please get in touch in the first instance by adding your name and contact details to the registration here. Organisers will then be in touch to provide registration details and more information.

Please note, you will need to bring your physical passport/ID card with you on the day.

Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed on provision of a receipt, and participants in the attempt will receive a free t-shirt – as well as the excitement of potentially holding an official World Record.
