Iconic British boxing
brand, Lonsdale announced today an exclusive twelve month sponsorship
with Queensbury Boxing League. The deal sees Lonsdale become the
official equipment supplier to all of the leagues televised events
during their 2012 season.
just over two years ago by the ambitious promotional duo of former
English Welterweight champion Ross Minter and promotional partner Alan
Foley, the league’s exciting new competitive platform for British based
boxers has seen a meteoric rise in its success over the last twelve
month’s culminating with the league signing an exclusive broadcast
agreement with British Eurosport, and Foley believes that the deal with
what he describes as the biggest name in boxing is a fantastic move for
both brands and he is looking forward to developing the relationship.
commented ‘For me Lonsdale quite simply means boxing and I’ve grown up
seeing their gloves and equipment adorning some of the sports biggest
stars including the greatest, Muhammad Ali.
The name Lonsdale has become
synonymous with champions over the years, and we are very excited to be
working with them and using their professional range of gloves and
equipment in all our league events this year”
the Lonsdale gloves in both my amateur and professional career and I
know from experience that their equipment is first class. Its fantastic
that we now have them involved with the league and it’s a great move for
us and our plans moving forward as we continue to build the league into
the most dynamic boxing show in the country”
Lonsdale products will make their debut on the league’s next promotional
outing at the end of the month, and will be seen when the show airs on
British Eurosport on Friday May 25th at 10pm.
