World Boxing Series and equipment supplier STING has agreed to extend their existing deal.
With the new season starting in three weeks, WSB’s official equipment supplier STING has revealed the official glove design for the upcoming eighth edition of World Series of Boxing.
After the successful partnership in Season VII, WSB is delighted to keep working with STING who are leaders in high performance sports equipment. Sting was the official Rio 2016 Olympic Games boxing supplier and will also supply the equipment for the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast in April. The company’s passion for both boxing and innovation makes them the ideal partner for the unique requirements of the WSB competition, WSB has said in an official media note.
“We are happy to extend our partnership with STING for Season VIII. The quality of their products, as well as this new design will enhance WSB’s image and will contribute to making Season VIII yet another ground-breaking WSB edition”, said AIBA Interim President Franco Falcinelli.
Emblazoned with the WSB and STING logos, the exclusive design will have two versions, gold, for the home matches, and black, for away. The complete partnership deal includes the provision of all fight equipment used by competitors across the entire season.
“STING is delighted to be partnering again with WSB. We are proud to be part of the only team boxing competition in the world and we hope the boxers and the fans will enjoy our new gloves design”, said STING Managing Director Amir Anis.
STING has designed the 2018 glove with a visually striking colour application to represent the uniqueness of World Series of Boxing. Sting has developed the upcoming glove with an advanced Quad Core system for even weight distribution and is equipped with STING’s Neo Gel technology to dissipate strike energy for both the striker and their adversary.
WSB is an amateur international boxing competition that allows the professional boxers to maintain Olympic eligibility, which is organised by AIBA.
STING was also the official boxing equipment supplier for Rio 2016 Olympic Games and will also supply for the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast from 4th to 15th April 2018.
