They also had a lonsdale sticker in one of Hatton's fights, either Urango or Castillo fight not sure. I guess its a sponsorship thing.

hatton has taped over against Castillo I believe, but I guess it's sorta like football players having to wear a certain companies cleats or if they were a different company's they'd have to tape over the logo to avoid a fine

it's all sponsorship folks. Does lonsdale make some crappy gloves so they just commandeer other company's or is his supply lines sorta choked?

hatton usually wears everlast with lonsdale logo but because he has done it a few times i assumed they had a deal but i know grant didnt give permission for the calzaghe fight, and i believe team calzaghe directly went to grant to produce a glove for them for the kessler fight. i think its a diabolical liberty.

Saw an interview on this as well.

Grant made the gloves specially for the fight, & did a great job.
Calzaghe throwing much harder shots than he has been recently against Kessler, obviously not worrying about his hands, & apparently thanked Grant in an interview after the fight.

Don't know who put the Lonsdale logo on the gloves, but it was very bad form.
