San Fransisco-based apparel company American Giant has teamed up with the storied Wild Card Boxing Club for a collection of hoodies, limited to a run of 275. Helmed by multiple trainer of the year winner and world renowned trainer Freddie Roach, Wild Card Boxing Club has housed some of prizefighting’s most accomplished fighters, both active and inactive — including Manny Pacquiao, Ruslan Provodnikov, Miguel Cotto and two UFC former champions, and pound-for-pound fighters Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva. Roach has also trained the likes of Mike Tyson and Oscar De La Hoya at one point in their respective, legendary careers. The collaborative effort looks to honor both the elite professionals as well as the driven amateurs who add to the soul of the gym, collectively making it what it is today.
Inspired by vintage boxing aesthetics, the item features a distinctive American Giant and Wild Card Boxing collaborative patch embossed on its front, as well as the gym’s branding embroidered in a varsity-inspired lettering across its back, all printed on the apparel company’s award-winning flagship hoodie. Celebrating the occasion, the pieces will be offered in a newly designed tar color, with custom-made matte black zippers and detailing, and a special handwritten enumeration on its locker-loop tag identifying its unique order within the limited run.
The premium hoodies by American Giant act as an ode to Wild Card Boxing Club and Freddie Roach’s unwavering dedication and continued contributions to the sweet science. We have teamed up with Wild Card Boxing to give away five of these very limited hoodies through a contest to celebrate. The rules are as follows and winners will be selected on Friday, April 17:
