Last year was a great year for sport generally, but in particular boxing. 2017 saw the rapid revival of boxing, which has returned after a spell in limbo, in many ways thanks to a once in a lifetime event; the record breaking Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight in Nevada, USA in August.
Known as "The Money Fight” and "The Biggest Fight in Combat Sports History”, viewing numbers hit an all time high with pay-per-view figures breaking a staggering $1B. Closer to home, we’ve seen Anthony Joshua continue his unbeaten streak including a clash against fellow titan, Wladimir Klitschko.
We’ve been working in the sports and leisure sector for more than a decade and our advanced foams are used extensively in boxing equipment and accessories, including gloves, helmets and rings. Our range of foams deliver outstanding comfort and performance and provide unrivalled impact resistance and cushioning, yet are flexible and lightweight, making them ideal for the intense environment of a boxing arena. All of our foams are non-toxic, odour free and certified by all the relevant governing bodies.
Who knows, it’s very possible we were, in some way, up close and personal during these record breaking fights!
