Grant boxing gear: the lowdown

About Grant boxing gear

Joe Calzaghe, Bernard Hopkins, Roy Jones Jr., Floyd Mayweather, Evander Holyfield and Joan Guzman: the list of the greats who use Grant boxing gear reads like a who's who of world boxing champions past and present.

Famed for durability and performance, the Grant boxing brand was founded by New York in 1995 by boxing enthusiast and trainer Grant Elvis Phillips, with money he earned from one of his fighters. The company has grown from a little-known concern to one of the most respected manufacturers of boxing equipment in the world. Previously in the shadow of mega-brands such as Everlast and Lonsdale, Grant boxing is particularly noted for producing high quality boxing gloves, such as those worn by Joe Calzaghe in a crucial super middleweight match with Mikkel Kessler in 2007. Grant also sells training equipment, punch bags, headgear, mouth guards, punch mitts and a range of other boxing equipment.
