The Fitboxing World Games are just around the corner. After two years of absence, due to the pandemic, the international competition faces its second part of the calendar with nearly 200 teams to find the best fitboxers on the planet in its fourth edition. Arriving from all parts of Spain, Portugal, Italy or Argentina, the classifications that began in the first week of March will continue throughout April with a view to the grand finale on June 4 at the Caja Mágica in Madrid.
A unique day in a setting that has already hosted major world championships in other sports disciplines and that will bring together 64 teams, more than 300 fitboxers and around 1,000 spectators in its stands. With mixed teams, so there is no separation between women and men, in past editions the Fitboxing World Champion medal -approved by the World Boxing Council (WBC)- always ended up in sides 100% feminine.
