Jorge Linares tops the bill in Broadway

It’s been a slow start to the New Year up to now, but this Friday the action really hots up, as one of our favourite boxers, Jorge Linares, laces up his gloves again when he steps into the ring at The Hulu Theatre, New York against Pablo Cesar Cano. Part of a great Matchroom USA card, featuring Demetrius Andrade and Amanda Serrano, Pound 4 Pound superstar Jorge has the chance to work towards another world title shot at his new weight of super lightweight.

Fight Week Apparel

Having worked with Jorge for a number of years, we always enjoy ensuring he is fully equipped and looking every bit the champion he is. Jorge will be kitted out for the week in The Big Apple, as we have produced a tracksuit, jacket and hat (to protect him from the harsh New York winter weather). Jorge loves wearing our ever popular LGND range, so we have printed the famous Teiken Boxing Gym emblem on the front of our LGND Challenge ¼ zip top, alongside the SW symbol- both in blue. The back of the top houses the lucky number 7 in matching colour, with Linares printed above. The accompanying tracksuit bottoms feature the same Teiken emblem, as seen on the top. We’ve made all of his fight week clothing available for order now

The matching rain jacket also houses our LGND branding, with a bespoke blue snakeskin ‘7’ and Linares emblazoned on the back, both below a white Teiken Boxing Gym symbol. The Linares Glacier bobble hat combines a range of blues, grey and white and is completed with our distinctive LGND labelling.

Shorts of a Champion

As a former four-weight world champion, it’s important for Jorge to enter the ring looking exactly that. The colour scheme used for his shorts and ring walk jacket for this fight mirrors that of his tracksuit and jacket. The base material is an eloquent hand printed satin, with marbled blue/black/white print. Both the shorts and jackets are trimmed with sleek white snakeskin, which makes for a great contrast between the colours.

Hublot (Jorge’s main sponsor) adorns the front of the black leather waistband of the shorts in vibrant silver Swarovski crystals. The shorts are completed with the Teiken emblem printed on the right leg snakeskin panelling and SW on the left. The sleeveless ring walk jacket has the same SW and Teiken symbols, with a large silver crystal number 7 and Linares inserted on to the back.

Linares Merchandise

As well as selling the Linares tracksuit and matching bobble hat, we have designed a brand new supporters t-shirt, which is on sale now.  The design on the front is an elegant watercolour print in the shape of the lotus flower- Jorge’s custom logo, with Linares emblazoned above the print, in metallic blue. The back of the t-shirt houses a mirrored number 7 with matching Linares above. To cater for even more boxing fans, we have stocked the t-shirt in sizes from medium boys right up to XXXL.

We can’t wait to get over to New York to cheer Jorge on. Everyone at SW wishes him the very best of luck.
