RALEIGH, NC – Amir Mansour extended his unbeaten record with a first-round knockout of Jason Gavern at Dover (Del.) Casino & Hotel on April 12. Now 18-0-0, Mansour’s victory kept his NABA and WBF Intercontinental heavyweight titles intact.
During his two months of training for the Gavern bout, the Delaware native became the first professional boxer to use the new GelDefender™ head pad to supplement his boxing headgear. PSE Technology LLC — the company that created GelDefender™ — provided the southpaw knockout star with a prototype product to use during sparring sessions.
“No boxer wants to take unnecessary risks during training,” said Mansour. “But you still have to train to make sure you’re ready to defend against head and body punches. The extra head padding from the GelDefender worked with my training headgear.”
The GelDefender™ head pad is designed for use inside virtually any sports or recreation helmet. The gel is Impact Gel®. Visit www.geldefender.com for information.
