"After months of intense work, I am delighted to finally be able to launch our new range of boxing equipment to suit all levels of boxer. Steve Wood, (VIP Promotions Ltd) and I have deliberately taken our time with this joint venture as we were determined not to rush into anything and more importantly - get things right.
Previously, I've never been 100% satisfied with the equipment I've used and for some reason I’ve always found it difficult to get suitable, decent quality kit in Manchester - which I found strange as it’s probably Britain’s boxing capital.
For example, the strapping on some of the gloves I used to wear was great but I’d find the knuckle part wouldn’t last too long, or the knuckle may have lasted some time but the remainder of the glove would have worn out within a month.
So we decided to do something about it.
In the beginning we sourced many samples but were often disappointed with the quality or found the design lacking. Eventually, after months of research, we came up with a range of products we were both really happy and excited about.
It may have taken over 18 months to reach this point but we’re glad it did because we’ve ended up with a quality range of products and we feel the results have been well worth the time and effort.
As you can see elsewhere on the site I’m convinced we’ve got the pricing just right. Our low cost beginners range is very affordable; using impregnated pvc leather glove which is designed to last.
And at the other end of the scale our British Boxing Board of Control approved contest gloves really are knock-out.
I firmly believe they are the perfect fighting gloves.
But it's not just gloves on offer, you’ll find that we have sourced and produced a range of amateur and professional headguards, protectors, hand wraps and sundry items.
Take a look around and I’m sure you’ll be amazed at what’s on offer - and keep coming back as we have plans to extend our range even further over the coming months."
