Last month I introduced my newest dmboxing.com product a most attractive V-neck t-shirt. This product is white in color with short sleeves and features the official logo on front and the website address is displayed across the upper back shoulder area for easy viewing.
All of my products are going back to white in color, which was the original color in 2007 when I first offered t-shirts on-line. You may still order the blue t-shirt or tank top, which I do have in stock, but white will now be the color for all my products with the exception of the hats.
To order, state size desired and send check or money order (NO cash please) for $12.00; and, as my sincerest appreciation for choosing this website from among your many choices in boxing, I will include FREE shipping to anywhere within the continental United States of America. Send orders to:
