USA Boxing has named Under Armour as its official performance partner in a deal that will see the apparel brand provide athletes at all levels of competition–youth, junior Olympic and elite–with head-to-toe apparel and footwear.
Additionally, Under Armour will outfit the entire USA Boxing team with training and competition gear for the next six years including the 2016 and 2020 Olympics.
USA Boxing team members first appeared in Under Armour uniforms and footwear at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada, earlier this month.
In an effort to help elevate USA Boxing's performance in training and competition, Under Armour has also developed a custom collection of boxing gear featuring Armourvent technology as well as the UA ClutchFit Title Hunter boxing boot.
"This partnership reflects the multitude of core values that Under Armour shares with USA Boxing including passion, integrity and will. Both our organizations exist to make all athletes better," says Peter Murray, vice president, global brand and sports marketing, Under Armour. "We are honored to support USA Boxing's incredible legacy of building champions on the Olympic stage and beyond, as we work together to help strengthen the sport in the U.S. grassroots to elite levels."
