Rocky Balboa Inspired Boxing Gloves Necklace
This necklace and pendant are very similar to the Rocky Balboa boxing glove necklace and are further inscribed to give a reminder of meaning and purpose to those that wear it.
All of our lives, we are fighting for something greater. A personal goal, athletic achievement, career movement, or overcoming sin. This scripture by Philippians 4:13 helps its wearer to stay on that path.

For great fans of the Rocky Balboa series and many of the undertones of meaning behind it, this boxing glove pendant and necklace will serve as an excellent gift for any religious and boxing fan.
Rocky Balboa wears a very similar gold necklace in Rocky V. As the story goes in the movie, Rocky was given this necklace by his trainer Mickey, who himself had received it as a gift from boxing superstar Rocky Marciano.
“Dis is the favorite ‘ting I have on dis earth,” Mickey says as he hands over the golden necklace to his apprentice, a young Rocky Balboa.
If that boxing fan in your life is a big Rocky fan, too, then this gift could genuinely brighten up their spirits as they not only appreciate feeling just like the legendary Rocky himself but will find alignment to their life’s mission with the scripture on the pendant.

I recently got these exceptional gloves in my hands and reviewed them for MMA Hive. Hayabusa is one of the top brands in boxing glove technology, and it’s easy to see why.
Their boxing gloves offer unrivaled wrist support and hand stability for boxers.
They keep the wrist and hand aligned and secure in any punching situation, which results in far fewer injuries and more comfort during bag work or sparring.
If your loved one is getting into boxing, already is a boxer, and has a soft spot for superhero (or antihero) comics, then this special Marvel Deadpool edition will put a HUGE smile on their face.

Most people know you need a mouthguard if you’re getting into the ring for some boxing sparring.
But you (and your special man) may not know that the regular boil-and-bite mouthguards simply don’t provide the best protection for your teeth and jaw.
A custom mouthguard, on the other hand, is a mouthguard that has taken an imprint of your exact teeth and gums to create a mold especially for you.
That custom mouthguard by Impact Mouthguards will offer the absolute best protection against any punches to the face and subsequent missing teeth.
This is an excellent gift for a regular boxer getting stuck in with sparring against his teammates.

Meister Glove Deodorizers
Highly effective deodorizer for smelly boxing gloves that need some serious action.
Eco-friendly, highly absorbent, and flannel nunchucks are machine washable. It works just as well with sports shoes!
- Highly absorbent to remove odor and keep gloves hygienic
- Leaves gloves smelling fresh with Cedar, Fresh Linen, Cologne or Lavender aroma
- Increases glove life span by removing moisture which breaks down materials
- Nunchucks design keeps them together and easy to slip into gloves
- High quality flannel material
- Works with all kind of glove combinations or even shoes
- Scent can be too strong at first
Is your special man coming home from the gym with a bunch of smelly gear? I know all too well how hard it can be to get that smell to go away.
More often than not, boxers don’t really take good care of their boxing gloves – where a lot of body sweat can reside for several days after use, especially if they’re not aired out properly.
But it’s not so easy to air them out. You can’t always hang them outside when it’s bad weather, as that’ll potentially harm the lifespan of a good pair of gloves.
So instead, a pair of Meister Glove Deodorizers can help absorb all the funky smells. Just drop the deodorizer into each glove overnight, and the nasty smell will be soaked up and replaced with a fragrance of lavender or fresh linen.
The pack has enough to last for a year and is cheap. So these even make a great stocking filler!
