    So with would be murderer Deontay Wilder recently announcing the launch of his own merch range I got to thinking does any fighter have - or had - a line of merchandise that even if I wouldn't buy personally that I don't find utterly cringeworthy?

    So gentlemen share the examples you have come across - or even own - and tell me why they are/aren't completely awful.

    Marvin Hagler has some "Destruction & Destroy" merch that I'd wear if it wasn't so expensive. Despite the terrible use of the English language, it looks cool and Hagler's one of my favorites ever.

    Floyd Mayweather's TMT merchandise looks pretty good - however, time will tell whether it ages well.

    For example, James Toney's early 90's merchandise (which you can see advertised in the magazines of that era) looks horrendous - really hasn't aged well. Bad enough to remind me of Puddy's 8-ball jacket from the Seinfeld series.

    By contrast, imo the classic 'Frazier', 'Duran', 'Carter' or 'Robinson' apparel (usually t-shirts) from the 60's and 70's looks timelessly good.
