Over the last few months we've seen an increase in Western fight fans wanting to buy boxing t-shirts from Japan. It seems those fans have been heard, sort of.
Recent the Ohashi Gym redesigned the shop section of their website and they now stock 10 t-shirts designs along with a "towel" for fans to order.
Sadly however to have these items delivered fight fans do need to be in Japan. So before you get too excited, unless of course you're in Japan, these items will still not be available to you directly.
What this does however make clear is that it's not just Western fans asking for these things to be made more widely available but also Japanese fans, and it may be possible, in the near future, for them to be bought at an affordable price through a middle man, or on a Japanese retail website rather than directly through Ohashi. If this happens then we suspect that fight fans will be able to get them much easier than they have been able to in the past.
For those interested in checking out the shop it's available here:
