Steve Molitor - When the Champ calls to get a pair of custom Boxing Trunks done...

Posted by


When the champ, Steve Molitor ( The Canadian Kid) called us to design a pair of boxing trunks for his World Title fight, our shop went into a flurry of action to get him to look his best.

Steve's Only request was that he wanted to have his kids' name on them.  We took it from there.


Here is the step by step process of how we decorated a pair of Hollywood Filane trunks with his personalized and customized design.

Steve and I were teammates on the National Boxing Team and travelled the world together. It was great for my kids to meet him on one of our trips to Toronto. It's alway great to reconnect with teammates and talk about the Glory Days!

My boys wishing Steve Good Luck before we shipped them off to steve

  As a pro he went on to win a World Championship.  Here is a little montage video that was put together for him by Lee Baxter promotions and shown just before Steve was call up to the ring and introduced to the crowd.  Great show of respect shown this to this great Champion by Lee Baxter and team.

Great tribute video of Steve
