Like how a duck takes to water, so is the same way Mexicans take to combat sports.
Since the 18th century when boxing was illegal in most countries, it was a booming sport in parts of Mexico and this led to one of the first-ever boxing commissions to ever exist in 1921.
Ever since more and more boxing promotions have been established and this has led to the country producing over 200 world champions.
So today, we’re going to be looking at and ranking some of the biggest boxing promotions within Mexico.
1. Zanfer Boxing Promotions
Established in 2016, Zanfer promotions has become the biggest in the whole of Mexico and Latin America, with a social media presence of over 200,000 followers.
