Jordan Gill & Dave Coldwell
Dave and Jordan continue to work on the dream of a world title fight and Matchroom Boxing are the promotional team behind the duo to deliver that. The past few years training alongside the likes of Derek Chisora, Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew, Hopey Price and Anthony Fowler has really brought Jordan on. He has a link with the Real Boxing Gym in Dubai and makes regular trips over there for pre training camps to prepare his body and mind for battle.
It’s been fantastic working with Jordan on his boxing kits over the past few years, we have made everything from leather and snakeskin boxing shorts to now very lightweight satin trunks. As the fights get longer and into the later rounds, it’s important to consider the weight of everything when in the ring for any sort of advantage. (links to shorts)
