On Saturday, May 4, 2013, Toy Art Gallery presented “Fight For Your Right”, Fight The City‘s first annual custom boxing glove showcase. Fight The City has partnered with talented artists from around the world to create unique one of a kind custom boxing gloves. Fight The City makes artist-driven gloves and gear to give fighters a choice of how to express themselves when they step into the ring. There was a showcase of 40 gloves. Toy Art Gallery exhibited and had for sale 10 pairs of gloves exclusively, while the remaining gloves will be auctioned off at the New York city showing on May 9th on Fight The City’s eBay page. A portion of all gloves proceeds benefit the Hoods to Woods Foundation. This foundation helps inner city kids get out to the wilderness to learn, grow, and become all they can be through outdoor activities such as snowboarding.
