When the male counterpart of online style editorial and shopping portal Net-a-Porter, Mr. Porter, came to the Dolce&Gabbana Milano Thunder Gym to shoot some of our fighters we saw it as a sign of the Zeitgeist. Boxing is very much in Fashion, and with the Thunders, Fashion is in Boxing.
As Dolce&Gabbana Milano Thunder cruised into the semi-finals of the World Series of Boxing, Mr. Porter is set to feature not only some of the real fighters involved but an array of Dolce&Gabbana sports looks to make your mouth water.
Boxing is going from strength to strength with the popularity of the sport on a high. Professional bouts attract record television audiences, while the amateur game is turning it’s full attention to the 2012 London Olympics, where will feature, for the first time in Olympic history, the event of Women’s Boxing.
