THE RING MAGAZINE (April 2018)
JABS AND STRAIGHT WRITES By Thomas Hauser
A tip of the hat (pun intended) to Lamar Clark.
Clark is creative director for THE RING. But he shares that creativity with another venture. In November 2016, he launched an apparel design company called Boxing Aficionado that sells snapback caps keyed to boxing’s 17 weight divisions. The caps come in multiple colors and made their ring debut when Mark Breland wore one for Deontay Wilder’s October 4, 2017, title defense against Bermane Stiverne.
“Sales are small right now,” Clark acknowledges. But tall oaks from little acorns grow.
