Imagination Park Technologies Inc (CSE:IP) (OTCMKTS:IPNFF) has signed on as a sponsor of legendary boxing and UFC cutman Jacob "Stitch" Duran, who will be working Tyson Fury’s corner in his upcoming heavyweight championship rematch against Deontay Wilder. 

The role of the cutman is to tend to the injuries of a fighter between rounds and keep them healthy, both physically and mentally. Stitch Duran has been doing just that — in boxing, UFC and bare knuckle fights — for decades.

In advance of the fight, Imagination Park has created a Stitch Duran AR model, which fans can pose with using the ImagineAR app. Users can place Stitch in their environment with the “AR Nearby!” feature, and the company is using the hashtag #StitchWithMe to give away a prize package to the best picture.

"Imagination Park is absolutely thrilled to be a part of this historic rematch represented by Stitch in Tyson Fury's Corner," CEO Alen Paul Silverrstieen said in a statement. "We are the first-ever augmented reality company to be represented at such a historic sports event by a legend in both boxing and UFC for decades. Millions of sports fans worldwide will see our ImagineARTM logo and website on Stitches vest in the ring."

Wilder and Fury first fought in December 2018, a bout that ended in a controversial split decision. Wilder remains undefeated, and the pair will trade blows again at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on February 22.
