Badou Jack is having the time of his life. After formally announcing his May 19th world title fight against Adonis Stevenson in Toronto last week, the two-division world champion made headlines Thursday with the launch of his new nutrition supplement line entitled “Ripper Nutrition.” The special launch event was held at the American Nutritional Corporation complex in Las Vegas, where Ripper Nutrition was formulated, tested and made.
“This is a dream come true for me,” said Jack. “I have wanted to start my own nutrition line for a while now, but I only wanted to do it if I knew it was going to be clean and safe. I know boxing doesn’t last forever, so it was important for me to create a business that can provide for my family for years and years to come.”
The two products, OXY Ripper and AMINO Ripper, combine Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) with LUNASIN, a powerful antioxidant that clinical studies have shown reduce inflammation, support heart health and boost the immune system. Additionally, Ripper Nutrition is Informed Sport Certified, the global gold standard testing certification for banned substance assurance.
“The reason we started Ripper Nutrition is Badou Jack wanted to start his own supplement line and he wanted to put the purest, cleanest and highest grade ingredients into workout supplements,” said Amer Abdallah, co-founder of Ripper Nutrition. “We formulated a team and gathered the best researchers, developers, scientists and manufacturers all based in the United States. Now it is known as ‘Ripper Nutrition’.”
“Badou Jack raises the bar,” continued Abdallah. “He is genuine, down to earth and doesn’t settle for the norm. Inside the ring, he has captured world titles in two different weight classes and he doesn’t shy away from the biggest fights. Outside of the ring, he doesn’t want the limelight, but he still strives for excellence. That is why we partnered together on this venture and perfected a product that a champion can use and be proud of.”
Jack was joined by several Ripper Nutrition “ambassadors” that believe in the product including former world champion Jessie Vargas, Mayweather Promotions fighters Lanell Bellows and Ashley Theophane as well as UFC star Kevin Lee. He was also supported by his entire family including his newborn son Malik.
“I’m very blessed and thankful,” said Jack. “I have a beautiful family, an amazing boxing career and I am gearing up for what is going to be the biggest fight of my career. This is a great day for me and I’m thrilled that this product is finally available to be purchased and used by athletes around the world.”
