Every successful sporting achievement is built on a foundation of character, desire and tenacity.

This is how the story began, with daring and zeal, when Cav. Orlando Leone founded "LEONE 1947" in 1947 after years of expertise in the leather goods industry. The founder's passion for boxing inspired him to create products specifically for this activity, and the company quickly rose to the top of its industry. At that time, LEONE1947 gloves were worn by all Italian boxers. Since that time, this LEONE 1947 brand has been consistently present in the ring both in Italy and around the world, contributing its expertise in creating technical protection for new sports that are gaining popularity abroad, such as kickboxing, muay thai , savate and mixed martial arts (MMA).
