Rival Boxing was founded in Canada in 2003 by veteran trainer and cutman Russ Anber. He has poured all of his knowledge—gained over a decades-long career in the sport—into the manufacture of high quality Velcro and lace boxing gloves, hand wraps, boots, and training equipment, which you can get across Europe from Fight Equipment UK.
The brand’s star continues to rise in the sport and is worn by some of today’s best boxers, such as former world champion Jean Pascal, world ranked contenders Edwin Rodriguez and Keith Thurman, and World Champions Leo Santa Cruz and Yuriorkis Gamboa.
The Canadian company is focussed in innovation, and has developed the dual angle V-Strap Wrist-Lock 2 system, which provides unrivalled wrist and palm support, and their Guerro hand wraps, which offer extra tension across the thicker wrap for improved strength and protection.
Fight Equipment UK supplies Rival’s full range of RPM punch mitts, RB bag gloves, and RS sparring gloves. Their design and innovation has produced the essential Rival RS11V sparring glove, which incorporates the V-Strap Wrist-Lock 2 system, super microfibre construction, extra thick 50mm foam padding and AirFlow cooling system for their greatest glove yet.
