Wiradjuri World Champion Masters Boxer to Punch His Way to a World Record

SYDNEY - May 11, 2023 - PRLog -- Wiradjuri man Buddy Oldman is about to be immortalized in the history books. Under the guidance of the Guinness World Records, the World Champion Masters Boxer is proud to confirm that he will be punching a boxing bag for 72 hours to set a new world record to raise awareness for mental health. Buddy will be taking his first jab in this momentous marathon to raise money for Wellways Australia on Thursday, October 12, 2023, at Hurricane Combat Centre, Albury Sports Ground.

From the Albury region of New South Wales, Buddy Oldman takes to the ring to fight for those in need of inclusion and support. He is extremely passionate about raising awareness for Aboriginal and mental health, as well as autism and ADHD acceptance. With every fight, he aims to break down the stigma surrounding conversations about mental health and wants everyone to check on each other more often.

"It will be unbelievable to see my name in the Guinness World Records, but achieving this goal is not for me," says Buddy. "I am doing this first and foremost to raise money for Wellways Australia and the work they do for mental health in the community. Bringing more awareness to the work they do and making a difference in people's lives is more important to me than seeing my name up in lights."

To the WGBC Masters World Champion, removing the stigma around such topics as mental health and neurodiversity is something worth fighting for, because he knows first-hand how destructive it is to keep quiet about it. Buddy struggled with PTSD and depression for much of his adult life because of the traumatic experience of being sexually assaulted as a child. When he took up the sport of boxing at the age of 48, his whole life changed. In a few short years, he has rose to be the 50 to 55 years Australian champion in the in the 71-75kg weight group.

Buddy's next fight will be at the Gairy St Clair Superhero Fight Night on Friday, July 7, 2023, and he plans to be walked out by someone who needs to know that they are loved and accepted for who they are. His world-record marathon will be a three-day community celebration at Hurricane Combat Centre, Albury Sports Ground, with special guests and activities for the family.
