Manchester: Birmingham and Rochdale based Muay Thai Boxer Mubz Bajwa has sadly passed away on Thursday night due to a suspected heart attack- with some of the biggest names in Thai Boxing, politics and entertainment paying tribute to him on Social Media.
Mubz who was a British Pakistani Thai Boxer made headlines in local and international media when he smashed three world records in Feb 2017. The records were, times for ‘most full-contact knee strikes in 60 seconds’ (alternate legs), most ‘full-contact elbow strikes in 60 seconds’ (alternate elbows) and ‘most-full-contact elbow strikes with one arm’ in 60 seconds’. He also held 2014 Guinness World Record for carrying out a whopping 111 consecutive rounds of full contact Thai Sparring over 7 hours and 20 minutes.
Bajwa raised £6000 pounds for Eidhi Foundation when he smashed these records in 2017. After his record breaking feat he featured in many radio and tv shows both locally and internationally.
His friend Tanveer Tariq who helped him train at gym prior to his record breaking feat said: ” Thai Boxing Community is shocked,He was outstanding Boxer. I think he’ll always be remembered for his charity work and boxing. It was only when people saw him and stood in front of him that they fully realised what a powerful figure he was.”
