Before his trilogy with Joe Frazier, before he fought and won against George Foreman in front of 60,000 people and before he was even Muhammad Ali, Cassius Clay represented the United States of America in the 1960 Rome Olympics. When he went on to win gold in the light heavyweight division, Ali kicked off his journey to become one of the most well-known and influential athletes of all time. This week, in the spirit of the sporting legend and just in time for the Tokyo Summer Olympics, Champion released its latest Muhammad Ali Round 2 Collection.
Inspired by the 1960 Olympic Games, the new line includes a reverse weave sweatshirt, graphic T-shirts emblazoned with iconic quotes, as well as a satin boxing robe. The pieces feature gold details and elegant logos, fit for a partnership with boxing royalty.
The pricing ranges from $35-$125, and clothing is available for both men and women in a variety of colors. The collection is available now in Champion retail stores around the world and on Champion.com. According to the brand, it will release a third collaborative capsule later this year, and the partnership will extend into 2022.
Here, we’ve picked out some of our favorite new pieces from the collection, which are available for purchase online today.
1. Champion x Muhammad Ali Round 2 Satin Boxing Robe
With embroidered logos, three-quarter length sleeves, and an oversized hood, this special edition satin robe will make you feel ready to step into the ring. Complete with a unisex fit, the robe’s luxurious material makes the piece, along with stylish details that tie it together.
2. Champion x Muhammad Ali Round 2 Reverse Weave Hoodie, 1960 World Champion
In Champion’s iconic Reverse Weave material, this hoodie pays homage to Muhammad Ali’s Olympic victory in 1960, back when he was a young Cassius Clay. Inspired by vintage posters from the contest and finished with gold aglets, this sweatshirt will make you feel like a champion with or without stepping into the ring.
3. Champion x Muhammad Ali Round 2 Heritage Cropped T-Shirt
This T-shirt comes in two colors and its boxy, dropped-shoulder fit gives the shirt a relaxed feel. The heavyweight cotton is ribbed, and the piece is finished with an embroidered “C.” We love to pair this with a comfy pair of jeans or leggings, and finish off the outfit with your favorite white sneakers.
4. Champion x Muhammad Ali Round 2 Reverse Weave Joggers
Champion’s legendary heavyweight fleece makes up these great joggers, perfect for a relaxing day at home or heading out to the gym. A back pocket makes it easy to stow away essentials, and the stitching keeps the pants the same size, even through the drying cycle. These are available in three unique colors.
