WBO Inter-Continental Lightweight Champion Kevin Mitchell today launched his own clothing and fightwear brand, with a limited edition T-Shirt created especially for his upcoming World Title showdown with Ricky Burns, which takes place at the SECC in Glasgow next month.
The T-Shirt, which features an image of a celebrating Kevin on the front, goes on sale today at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym shop, as well as the gym’s on-line shop at just £17.50.
Following a training session earlier today Kevin spoke briefly about the new clothing line.
“Yeah, I’ve got a new T-Shirt, now my fights are getting bigger I think it’s time I had my own brand.
I’m working with the TRAD TKO on selling the T-Shirts, they’ll be selling them through the gym shop and on-line, so we’ll start getting them out there this week.
I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and the timing’s right. I fight Ricky Burns for the World title next month and I’m sure my fans would like to be wearing one of the new shirts.”
Kevin then went on to say how fans could win one of his new T-Shirts, as well as a signed Burns versus Mitchell poster.
“It’s good to give away some freebies to help promote girl’s boxing, so I’ve signed a poster for my fight against Ricky and also giving away one of my new T-Shirts in a Facebook competition on the Women’s World Boxing Championships page – www.facebook.com/WomensWorldBoxingChampionships
I’m really getting behind girl’s boxing, I’ve become a big fan and am really looking forward to the World Boxing Federation Women’s World Championships next year.
I have to admit I wasn’t a big fan of girl’s boxing until I watched the Olympics. Saying that I have always supported Marianne (Marston) and Areti (Mastrodouka) as they are gym mates at the TRAD TKO.
But I’ve not seen Marianne or Areti fight yet, so watching Katie Taylor, Nicole Adams and the rest of the girls at the Olympics is what opened my eyes and gave me the insight, they proved just how good fighters girls are and now I’m a big fan.
Hopefully one of the girls will get the signed poster and T-Shirt – Happy days.”
The Kevin Mitchell ‘Limited Edition’ T-Shirt are available now at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town or on-line at www.tkoboxinggym.com
