Two-Time World Champion and 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist, Andre Ward, as its newest brand ambassador. The company is entering the boxing market by adding Ward and launching its #TrainWithPurpose campaign. By launching this campaign, POWERHANDZ will be introducing its new Striker Training Gloves to youth and professionals around the world via a crowdfunding campaign. With much anticipation, consumers will have the opportunity to become a member of the Striker Pre-Order Club which will be the first group globally to receive the newest addition to the POWERHANDZ lineup of training gloves with a personalized letter from Andre. In addition, the Striker Pre-Order members will be included in a drawing to win an autographed signed Andre Ward boxing glove.
Ward is widely regarded as one of the top-rated pound-for-pound fighters in the world, boasting a (29-0, 15 KOs) career record. With POWERHANDZ, Ward trains his most prized possession, his hands, for specific elements of his upcoming fights that improve his strength, power and hand speed. POWERHANDZ help Ward focus and hone in on all those areas while training.
Before his recent victory against the previously undefeated Sullivan Barrera, Ward trained daily with POWERHANDZ. “The POWERHANDZ gloves have been my secret weapon while training. They provide long-lasting benefits and have been implemented into my daily training routine,” said Ward.
Ward added, “Boxing requires discipline, focus and precision while training. If you want to take your training and skills to the next level, POWERHANDZ is by far the best product out there.”
Danyel Surrency Jones, Co-Founder and COO of POWERHANDZ said, “Launching into boxing/MMA has always been a goal for POWERHANDZ. We are committed to providing the best athletic performance-enhancing products in the world. Having one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world as our brand ambassador for boxing marks a proud moment for our company.”
Darnell Jones, Co-Founder and CEO adds, “Andre Ward is a decorated world champion and gold medalist who embodies what our company is all about. We are proud to have him on board and together, we have the ability to help athletes all over the world achieve their highest potential.”
