Brand Spotlight: Pro Box
Brand Spotlight / / Aug 18, 2016
A fan of Pro Box? It’s safe to say we all are at Boxfit and we’re pleased to offer their extensive range online here and in our Essex store. But, what don’t you know about Pro Box?
It was founded by a professional engineer
Go back in time over 30 years and you’ll be out of luck – no Pro Box. It was started by an engineer named Graham John Sussex, who loved boxing and got involved in his passion by making a ring for his local club. Going from strength to strength, he was eventually able to own his own boxing equipment company.
And what have you done today? (We’re not being rude, it’s a reference to the film Wanted – check it out)
They’re all about safety
Five years after the Pro Box name was born, the growing team earned a well deserved ‘Safety and Quality Assurance License’ from the Amateur International Boxing Association (A.I.B.A). In fact, they’re the only boxing company in the UK with this license when it comes to manufacturing competition gloves and headguards.
Known as ‘the choice of professionals’, now you’re impressed! If you want to see for yourself, here are the gloves and headguards we’ve got in stock.
All the extras
You might only use a small batch of what they produce but they actually make a massive range of equipment. You’ve got the basics like gloves, mitts and punch bags, then ropes, rings, clothing… the variety is why they’re a huge supplier to boxing clubs. Perhaps they’ve supplied a ring to your own ABA club?
It’s just good to know that they’ve got the whole thing covered and if you want things to match, it’s not a problem, and let’s not forget, if you’re going to fall face down on a ring it might as well be a top quality ring for a top quality landing! There’s no shame in that.
You don’t have to have seen the Olympics to know Pro Box goes from small clubs all the way to the international pros. They’ve kitted out Frank Bruno, Barry McGuigan and Prince Naseem to namedrop just a few, so you’re in good company with those red Pro Box gloves you love.
Based in Gillingham, England that’s some reach and a great message for the strength of British business.
