Fighters that wear grant gloves
I don't know if its just me or what but I noticed boxers that wear grant gloves tend to produce less one punch ko's. Either the fight goes the distance or tko happens but rarely does a fighter get put to sleep. Examples of fighters are TIM Bradley, Floyd mayweather, Chavez Jr, Saul alvarez, and Hopkins.

grants have a better wrist protection that keeps punches straight. it's a glove more suitable for defensive style of boxing.

They're stiff, puncher's gloves. No reason why they would reduce someone's KO chances. Defensively, they offer nice coverage for blocking punches. Ergonomically, they fit certain hands better, which is probably why some fighters like them. I think they're really overrated but I like them for sparring.

grant gloves have a more dense foam and tighter leather that holds its form better
they protect your hands better and lessen the impact of your punches. the tight leather also decreases the likelyhood that a cut will occur (they usually occur when the glove has loose and soft leather)
reyes gloves are still a foam and horsehair combination i believe, with horsehair being the chief padding over the knuckles
a punch with reyes will bust a guy up faster than a grant
reduce less the impact of the punches than a grant does
cut a guy more
and your hand will be protected less.
winning gloves protect the hands the best and are a synthetic leather and layered foam. they are also insanely expensive.
everlast makes 3 pro gloves i believe
a loosely packed punchers glove - the MX
a more rounded glove (protection but also some pop)
and a boxers glove with lots of protection.
