2020 will be a year to remember And sadly recall for all the changes that COVID 19 has wrought upon us, with tragic deaths and infections, searing a scar across humanity that will forever remain livid.
Our sport was affected with the cancellation of many boxing cards and one of those was the famous traditional fight on May 5, accompanied by the trophy for the finest contest of that date,
The Mazahua belt was to be presented to the winner of the fight, but could not be delivered.
Thanks to the initiative of the Scholas Foundation, Heraldo de Mexico and WBC, there was an initiative to the call for candidates “Heroes for Mexico” will recognize the bravest of the brave, who day by day courageously combat the terrible virus, risking their lives and those of their families to save people.
Therefore, it was proposed to recognize these great persons requesting a life story throughout Mexico. The reaction and subsequent participation of society was tremendous and humbling. Texts and videos were received that outlined and highlighted heroism of the highest order.
The contest was concluded on July 31 and now it is up to the judges to evaluate all the stories to assess the winner of each state of Mexico and to be recognized with a replica of the Mazahua belt, in addition to being awarded medals for the best stories.
The winners will be announced on August 21 and the prizes will be awarded to each in their state with the Governors of each.
The Mazahua belt will be given in recognition to a health institution to praise doctors, nurses, paramedics, among others. For Scholas, El Heraldo de México and the WBC, they are the great world champions in this pandemic.
