New York, NY – SEPTEMBER 12, 2019 – Everlast worldwide, premier boxing and combat sports equipment manufacturer, has signed MMA fighter and boxing champion, Heather Hardy.

Heather Hardy is the latest to join Everlast’s roster of champions and contenders. She is the second women fighter and first female MMA fighter to be a part of Team Everlast.

“I’m thrilled to have Everlast in my corner.  I obviously appreciate their awesome equipment but what I love most is their character,” said Heather Hardy. “They understand the needs of a professional fighter while still making products that are perfect for my students.
