Boxing's connection with cigars has an impressive historical pedigree. Cigar aficionados recognize the vitolas Lonsdale and Churchill. But Boxing nuts know that both Lord Lonsdale and Winston Churchill were avid fans of the Sweet Science. Lord Lonsdale, who sponsored the Queensberry rules, had a cigar named after him by H. Upmann in turn-of-the-century Cuba. Young Winston Churchill snuck in to watch Peter Jackson kayo Frank Slavin in 1892 -- Churchill's putative drawing of the knockout is as familiar to boxing historians as his "V for Victory" sign.
The Boston Strong Boy, John L. Sullivan, often smoked a hundred cigars a day -- lighting one after the other, taking a puff or two and then throwing the stogie away! Gentleman Jim Corbett had a cigar named after him as well. Heck, even the Marquis of Queensberry had a cigar named after him ("Old Q").
Today no self-respecting manager, promotor, or mogul watches a match without a premium cigar in his hands. (We'll leave the cigar chomping to Knobby Walsh and his ilk.) So, Orinoco Cigars has teamed with the Cyber Boxing Zone to create the ultimate fight-night cigar. This limited edition cigar comes in a pocket-size cedar box. We use the highest quality leaf, including a Cuban- and Connecticut-seed hybrid that we grow ourselves. Champion Cigars are available exclusively at the fight site and through this page.
