The swimwear manufacturer turned boxing company Everlast has been around for over a century now since it was founded in the Bronx by Jacob Golomb. With the original intent of making swimsuits more durable, the company quickly grew to a sports equipment retail shop. Only seven years later, the then heavyweight fighter Jack Dempsey asked to be supplied with boxing gear by Everlast. After winning his fight in 1919, Everlast became the preferred outfitter for boxing, MMA and fitness products throughout the world. Today their equipment is sold to over 75 countries and 6 continents.
