The company I am set to launch in February is the 95er Athletic Club, a New York based online retail site for Mexican fight gear - in particular Torres Medina and Boxeo brand boxing gloves. All the gloves are handmade in Mexico City and are very high quality.
Some notes about the project and the 95er Athletic Club:
I am a New York native who lives on 95th st - the same block that my grandfather would play sports w/his friends when he arrived from Greece (they called themselves the 95ers).
This site is solely focused on supporting boxing and supplying athletes with high quality gear. We have a deep appreciation and respect for boxing as a sport, its athletes, and its history.
We have strong ties to Mexico. This site is for the sale of high-quality, durable Mexican made products only: all gloves are made in the heart of Mexican boxing, Mexico City. In fact, the 95er Athletic Club may sponsor Mexican professional boxers going forward so this logo may appear on gloves, shorts, t-shirts, other warm-up apparel.
