The Queensbury Boxing League has confirmed today that they have extended their exclusive sponsorship agreement with Iconic British boxing brand Lonsdale, which will see Lonsdale continue as the official clothing and equipment suppliers to all of the league’s televised events during their exciting 2013 season of boxing.
The newly forged deal will see all of the league’s competitors wearing the Lonsdale Ultimate Pro Fight Gloves during televised competition, and the league will also showcase some of the exclusive new designs on offer from Lonsdale during the forthcoming season starting on March 16th with its first major promotion of the season Nowhere To Hide.
Talking shortly after the agreement had been signed, Queensbury Promotions Director Alan Foley was quick to praise Lonsdale’s involvement in the league so far, and was excited to be working with in his words “The biggest name in world boxing”
“The league has had a meteoric rise over the last year with its televised coverage across Europe and Asia, and its fantastic that we can count on one of the biggest names in world boxing to help grow the competition into a world wide success this year, commented Foley.
“2013 looks set to be a historic year for the league as it continues to build its reputation as the most dynamic boxing league of its kind, and everyone involved with the show is looking forward to working with Lonsdale again and using their world class range of equipment”
Foley’s promotional partner Ross Minter who himself used Lonsdale during his own professional career that spanned nine years and several domestic title wins, also echoed Foley’s sentiments about the agreement.
“We’ve got huge plans and ambitions for the league this year which are going to really thrust this boxing platform to the top, and having Lonsdale on board for another season is crucial in realising them, remarked Minter.
“Last seasons success made a lot of people stand up and take notice of the league and what we are doing, and with Lonsdale continued involvement its another positive step towards taking the show to the next level over the coming year”
