I used to have some everlast handwraps but they were extremely short. I recently bought some cleto reyes hand wraps and they are hella kick ass I feel like i got a cast on my hands with them almost.

mexican handwraps are more elasticated and mould around your fist better. i bought 2 pairs from balazs boxing and they are very good. also i put toilet paper over the knuckles before i wrap my hand for extra protection during bag work. i saw joe goosen do it once, it really works well.

On the bags i use ringside super bag gloves and i dont feel the need to wrap my hands.

Fighting/Sparring i wear gauze and tape.

I think the other wraps are a waste of time, but if i had to choose one it would be the mexican.

I just read it, they are "Everlast Mexican Handwraps, 180'"
But they still aren't genuine hand wraps.
On a side note, for fights, what gloves should I get?
I Know Everlast are great, but somebody mentioned another brand.
I don't realy remember though

It depends what for - Bag gloves, sparring or fighting? i know a lot of guys who use the same type of gloves for everything but i use different for types for different things.

If you do/dont wrap your hands for bag work you may find certain gloves better than others.

For fighting - if your a puncher Reyes are good, but i dont think Everlast are a punchers gloves.

For sparring i use Everlast because they prevent injury more than my reyes.

I have these 16 oz. gloves for Bagwork
I'm getting 10 oz. gloves for sparring
And 8 oz. Gloves for fighting...I think that should be good,

Oh,and on my last post i said:
"But they still aren't GENUINE HAND WRAPS"
I meant "Geunine Mexican Hand Wraps"
Because they are real wraps, just not mexican
Sorry
:D

Mexican style handwraps, used for underneath your gloves to protect your hands, and wrists, they work great
