Guinness World Records adjudicator Carlos Martinez was on site at the 54th World Boxing Council Convention in Florida earlier this week to honour some of the sports biggest names for their record-breaking achievements.
Former boxing champion Floyd Mayweather was among the honorees at the event which took place at the Diplomat Resort & Spa and was recognised for three records notched up over the course of his incredible boxing career.
The 39-year-old was first honoured for Most bouts undefeated by a world champion boxer in a career with a total of 49.
He also presented with official Guinness World Records certificates for Highest career pay-per-view sales for a boxer at $1.3 million, and Most expensive boxing championship belt, valued at an amazing $1 million for his history-making win against Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
That showdown was billed as the “The Fight of the Century”, with the two world champion boxers going head to head in one of the most anticipated match ups in the sport's history.
Other honorees at the event included Alicia Ashley, who extended her remarkable feat by adding another year to her record of the Oldest boxing world champion (female).
Newcomer Genady Golovkin became the record holder for the Highest boxing knockout percentage by a middleweight champion (91.67%).
Ukranian boxing star Vitali Klitschko was also on hand to receive the record for Most wins in heavyweight boxing championship fights by brothers (40 combined), a title he shares with his brother Vladimir Klitchko.
Apart from recognising the sporting stars inside the ring, others were acknowledged for their achievements outside of the ropes.
Panamanian presenter, Juan Carlos Tapia received the honour of having the Longest running sports TV program with the same presenter. Lo Mejor del Boxeo, the show he has hosted since 1975 has been on the air for an impressive 41 years and 334 days.
Upon honoring all mentioned boxing legends, official adjudicator Carlos Martinez stated that “The presence of Guinness World Records in the WBC annual convention is rapidly becoming one of the most important traditions in the GWR Calendar – it is the day when we celebrate boxing’s world record breaking moments that happened over the last year."
