We use to see Floyd Jr. training and fighting with Winning gloves alot of times. But, this time he looks like he's gone exclusively Grants. I wonder if he has an exclusive contract with Grants.

I think I saw a clip of him using winning gloves. But Grant is all over 24/7. Bags, gloves.

Yeah, I noticed that. He probably does have a contract with Grant. He probably still uses Winnings for sparring, though.

It makes you wonder by how much did sales of Winnings gloves rise due to PBF/DLH/Hatton/Pacquiao 24/7....

24/7 put Winnings on the map.

he used winning just as much as grants in the 24/7. A green pair with mayweather promotions on it and another pair as well. jmm had the gold winning sh*t- nice!

floyd wore asics too, and adidas. doesnt mean hes sponsored by them. come on now, the man has a pair of grants and winning in every color and ever boxing shoe ever. doesn't mean he's sponsored. I doubt we will see PBF become the new poster boy for grant like Roy used to (who shockingly wore everlast in his last fight...) or more recently, dawson. wouldnt you pimp that sh*t if you could afford it? i would!

roy wore everlasts in lacy fight cause he said he must have same glove as opponent and lacy would only wear everlasts there was like a 30 minute delay caz they tried to make lacy wear grants and he refused.

Floyd is smart he knows how big 24/7 is and he knows the sponsorship money he could make off of it and using gloves like grant on it exclusively. Especially with the grant bags idk if i ever seen someone using a grant bag before.

Not the first time he used customized Grant gloves.

..or lack thereof. I first noticed the all grant gloves, which made me think that maybe his hands arent quite as bad as they used to be. I remember watching the last 24/7 and they were pretty bad. Maybe the time off has helped him?

When you're a boxer like Mayweather wouldn't the brand be irrelevant? I'm pretty sure Grant would custom make his gloves just so that he would represent their logo.
