Melzers Boxing Club Chromexcel Medicine Ball
LEATHER HEAD and Horween Leather teamed up with Context Co-Owner Ryan Huber to produce the Melzer’s Boxing Club Chromexcel Medicine Ball.  The 12lb 5oz 1950’s throwback medicine ball is styled after the leather ball used by Huber’s grandfather, Melzer Rhey, for over 50 years as a Golden Gloves Boxing coach.  Each ball is cut, sewn, laced, and stuffed by Paul Cunningham of LEATHER HEAD.  Medicine balls have been used in the conditioning drills of novice boxers and champion pugilists alike for decades.  Unlike contemporary synthetic equipment, Melzer’s ball is stuffed with natural fibers and boasts a durable Horween Chromexcel leather shell.  We encourage you to put this ball to use, or, as Melzer would say:  “Give ‘em hell!”

  • Context Expert Tip: “When I was five, Grandpa Melzer taught me the importance of a firm handshake. Next he taught me how to form a proper fist, then to throw a straight left jab, and soon I was hooked on the sweet science. Back in the 1950’s, one of his co-trainers skipped town with his most prized possession - his medicine ball. Melzer swore he would “poleaxe” the guy if he ever caught him. This Medicine Ball is dedicated to Melzer, and is intended for those who live their lives with the dedication and passion of a champion.”
