iBox Customise has made custom boxing gear for the likes of current heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Derek Chisora and even Conor McGregor.
iBox Customise is a world-renowned company that makes custom and bespoke boxing gear for boxers, founded in Teesside by Imran Naeem.
Naeem founded the company after putting all of his money into his gym Natural Progression Boxing Academy stating “We didn’t have any money left to buy gloves or anything.”
“I started researching and looking how gloves are made. I got some gloves from Pakistan and took them apart to find out how they were made and they I started making my own.”
“I would give the gloves out taking feedback from everyone to find out what needed improving.”
iBox Customise was launched in 2014 originally taking orders through their social media pages building the brands reputation.
Until one day Naeem received a phone call he initially thought was a hoax from British heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora.
Chisora informed Naeem that he really liked what he was doing with iBox Customise and asked if he could have a pair of sparring gloves personally made for him.
“We thought this could be big, so we asked him to come to the gym so we could personally give them to him rather than post them out
“We put an iBox t-shirt on him and shot a video with him, it was brilliant and that was the start” said Naeem.
Describing the gloves Chisora said “Great product can’t wait to fully stretch them out, I think they will be amazing for me, I can’t thank iBox enough.” (iboxcustomise.com).
iBox Customise has since gone on to work with Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua and Amir Khan to name a few. iBox even had the opportunity to make custom training gear for Conor McGregor ahead of his debut against Floyd Mayweather; watch IFL TV’s video…
