I am planning on installing a Punch Bag Wall Mount inside my home. The Location of the wall mount is going to be attached to part of an old chimney so it will be screwed into thick brickwork for strong structural support.
Unfortunately, the wall mount I have bought did not include screws or any fixings.
Attached are pictures showing the vague instructions given in the wall mount user guide and also measurements of the wall mount holes as well as the location of where I am going to install it.
What fixings do you recommend I use to attach the wall mount? (Wall plugs, screws, anchors etc.)

P.S. the bag I am hanging weighs 45kg, the wall mount itself weighs 4kg.

Thanks for the Rawlbolt suggestion, I'm a novice so can you tell me why the Chimney is not the best place, I do have other exterior walls I can use but the Chimney had the most free space around it.

Just because it is the chimney stack. It has a lot of weight pressing down from above, and you are going to hang a weight pulling in one direction.

Tv on the stack, no problem, heavy punch bag, hmmmm

As I said, I'm a novice so I don't see the problem, but from my knowledge of physics, I think you are suggesting that the heavy weight of the punching bag in one direction could potentially "pull" the chimney causing the whole stack to collapse. Right?
Please reply asap, I have bought the Rawlbolts and want to get my bag up soon but I don't want to put it in a bad place.

You have understood my concern correctly.
