Everlast Worldwide, Inc., the global leader in fight sports and fitness, has extended the exclusive equipment and apparel contract with American heavyweight boxing contender, Deontay Wilder. An undefeated knockout specialist, Wilder has received praise from many in boxing, including heavyweight kingpin and training partner, Wladimir Klitschko.

Under the agreement, Wilder will continue to train exclusively with Everlast equipment and apparel as well as play a prominent role in direct to consumer and retail marketing initiatives. Wilder joined the Everlast team in 2008 following the Beijing Summer Olympics, where he earned a Bronze Medal for Team USA.

We are very proud that Deontay has been part of the Everlast family since announcing his decision to turn pro.

"One of my dreams as an amateur boxer was to one day represent Everlast," said Wilder. "Fortunately, that dream came true after the 2008 Olympics. I am excited to remain an integral part of the Everlast family as I continue my pursuit to become heavyweight champion of the world. I am grateful for all the support Everlast has provided me in my career, and I hope to add my name to their long list of champions in the near future!"
