Craftsmanship and style are the words used to describe the hand-crafted Italian leather boxing accessories made and designed by Virtuos Boxing.
All great companies have a great story, and Virtuos Boxing is no exception. Virtuos Boxing was founded by Donato DeMartiis, a native of Torino, Italy. Donato was taught the art of boxing from his father, Alessandro, who like many other Italians fled to Torino after World War II to find a better life for himself. This eventually led to a job as a factory worker and a career as a professional fighter. Donato has many fond memories of learning boxing moves from his father and vividly remembers wearing his father’s own gloves, filing him with a sense of empowerment and pride in his father’s legacy.
Donato understands the needs of boxers because he has personally been in the ring. As a professional coach at the world famous 5th Street Gym, the training facility of Mohammed Ali, Donato knows the standards a fighter’s gloves need to hold up to in order to withstand the rigorous demands of training and boxing matches.
This is what inspired the creation of Virtuos Boxing and our line of gloves and gear – a timeless style and strength that can only be found in Italian leather goods.
Like the love of boxing that Alessandro passed on to his son, we Italians pass on the art of fine leather craftsmanship from generation to generation. Through centuries of dedicated workmanship, we take pride in the beautiful, yet durable leather products we create.
We believe boxing is a noble art which deserves to be honored with hand-crafted, quality gloves. It is this inspiration, which drove Donato to establish Virtuos Boxing. The fabric lining of our gloves is breathable, which allows for comfort during those sweaty rounds in the ring. The beautiful Italian leather our gloves are made of will last from your first match to your last, like a faithful friend. The craftsmanship of each handmade pair of gloves provides individuality, as well as timeless style. They are not merely accessories; our gloves are a symbol of your pride in the effort you invest in honing your boxing skills. Each time you train in our hand-crafted Italian leather gloves, you will feel like the champion you are.
