FORMER IBF WORLD CHAMPION AND WELSH BOXER, LEE SELBY, JOINS #TEAMEVERLAST
London, UK – Thursday 21st February, 2019: Everlast Worldwide, the world’s leading manufacturer, marketer and licensor of boxing, MMA and fitness equipment, has announced a 2-year equipment deal with Lightweight boxing star Lee Selby.
Selby turned professional in 2008, and is a former IBF World Featherweight Champion, with a current record of 26-2. Nicknamed “The Welsh Mayweather” due to his elusive counter-punching style, Selby will now look to recapture a world title at Lightweight following a hard-fought points defeat to Leeds’ Josh Warrington in May 2018.
“We’re delighted to be formalising our relationship with Lee” said Chris Zoller, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development for Everlast. “He is a tremendously skilled fighter and a great role model for so many. We look forward to seeing what the next chapter of Lee’s career holds and working alongside him on many fronts over the coming years”.
With his Lightweight debut on the Degale vs. Eubank Jr. undercard on February 23rd and world title ambitions for 2019, Selby is excited to be announcing the partnership at a pivotal stage of his career: “I’m delighted to be joining #TeamEverlast. I believe people haven’t yet seen the best of me and I look forward to gaining that extra edge by working with the best in the business. They are a historic brand with great values and tradition so it was a natural move to make”.
