POWERHANDZ partners with brand ambassador Andre Ward for his November 19th Mega Fight
(Dallas-November 7, 2016) POWERHANDZ Inc., a leading athletic training products company, today announced their extended partnership with Andre Ward (30-0, 15 KOs) as an official sponsor of his training camp leading up to his heavily anticipated fight against reigning WBO, WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KOs).
Ward is widely regarded as one of the top-rated pound-for-pound fighters in the world. He discovered POWERHANDZ last year on Instagram, reached out to the brand and began training daily with the first version of the gloves. After becoming a Brand Ambassador for the company in March of 2016, he assisted with the development of the new, POWERHANDZ Striker Training Gloves. With POWERHANDZ, Ward trains his most prized possession, his hands, for specific elements of his upcoming fights to improve his strength, power and hand speed. POWERHANDZ help Ward focus and hone in on all those areas while training.
“Heading into the biggest contest of my professional career, POWERHANDZ chose to make a commitment to me, and I’m going to be sure to reward them for that on Nov. 19th,” said Ward. “The POWERHANDZ gloves have been a natural fit for me throughout my training camps.”
Danyel Surrency Jones, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of POWERHANDZ said, “Andre Ward embodies what our company stands for. His success in boxing as a world champion and Olympic gold medalist speaks for itself and we’re honored to be an official sponsor of his training camp leading up to his fight against Sergey Kovalev.”
Kovalev-Ward “Pound For Pound” has been hailed by pundits as the fight of the year. The championship event, a 12-round mega-fight for the WBO/IBF/WBA light heavyweight title at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is presented by Main Events, Roc Nation Sports, Krusher Promotions and Andre Ward Promotions. The mega-fight will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.
