Boxing shorts are a vital element of a fighter's gear. Not only do they need to be comfortable and keep the fighter cool while in the ring, but they can also go a long way in helping to establish the fighter's identity to an audience. Marketing is as important in fighting as the boxing match itself for professional fighters who rely on sponsorships to help cover their training and living costs. Customising boxing shorts can be done easily with a little bit of effort.

Things you need
- Iron-on sheets
- Sponsorship logos
Iron on a logo or a nickname onto the back of your boxing shorts. A nickname works well because people who have never seen you fight before may not remember who you are but a nickname on the trunks can keep your name in their mind during the fight. You can purchase sheets designed for logo printing and ironing onto clothing.
Sew coloured fringe to the seams of the shorts. Professional boxers like Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi are known for their flashy trunks with fringe on them. The fringe can be a memorable accessory that will not interfere with the fight or violate any athletic commission rules.
Apply sponsor logos to the trunks. Some fighters make more from sponsorship money than they do from their fight purse. Sponsorship logos are generally not ironed on since your sponsors could change from fight-to-fight, and you don't want to keep replacing your trunks. They are normally applied with an adhesive that sticks them to the shorts and can be peeled off after the fight is over.
