ANTHONY "The Man" Mundine is coming to Bendigo next month to take part in a world record attempt for the biggest ever boxing lesson.

The two-time world super middleweight champion will lead the boxing lesson at Bendigo Stadium as part of a fundraiser for the Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Five Bendigo residents have organised the event, with a target of 600 participants to break the current record of 450.

After the world record attempt, the organisers will ride 200 kilometres from Melbourne to Mornington and back.

Participant Lisa Nicolson said having Mundine attend took the event to a whole new level.

"I contacted Mundine's label Boxa to see if they could supply some merchandise, and they said they could send down Anthony Mundine if we liked," she said.

"That was the most exciting conversation I've had in a while.

"I was delighted when they made the suggestion."

Ms Nicolson said Mundine would fly down from Sydney especially for the world record attempt.

The event is on Sunday, September 21 at Bendigo Stadium.
