    Dillian Whyte and Chisora wear Fly brand gloves.
    The bbboc said they're approved gloves.

    parker's wearing them.

    perhaps Usyk's team have not come across those gloves before?
    usyk wears rival gloves. Gassiev, Hunter, Breidis wore rival gloves.

    then there's the thing i mentioned, politics, k2 and usyk.

    Even what usyk said about the ring, was BS.

    the same ring/rope position was kept for the entire duration of the SSE arena/matchroom cards.



    What does Parker wearing them have to do with anything? They picked up the glove, and said that particular pair was no good. They weren't talking about the brand, they said that particular pair. And obviously the same ring was used for the duration, the argument would have been that the agreed on ring was to be used the whole show. Nobody is accusing them of swapping the ring out between fights when nobody was looking. And at least you didn't claim the Whyte/Rivas thing was BS.

      They were new/sealed gloves from approved brands. Both opened and tested from both sides in front of each other. What usyk's coach started questioning was the brand/make itself when he said 'bad gloves'. That was why David Haye said 'all gloves are different, some have thicker padding'.

      That's why when they took the issue to Eddie, Eddie referred back to the brand itself.

      If the argument was 'no we're not on about the brand, this specific pair has been tampered' then eddie won't be saying 'they're an approved brand and other boxers wear them'. You go with how the conversation flows, it's the glove type/brand they're challenging.

      Actually, here's the clip

      5:00
      usyk's guy says to eddie 'the fly glove, which we've never heard about'
      and eddie says 'they're used very often'



      Also, im watching Usyk's interview now.


      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zizD...channel=USYK17


      I havent watched this interview myself before, i only read some stuff about what usyk had allegedly said. So far usyk has not said anything bad per se, the interviewer was driving the narrative. Usyk was just keeping it simple, saying "k2 promotions should handle these things".

      The interviewer asked Usyk "why didnt you wear the same glove as usyk?"
      so it's not that THE glove was tampered it's more the brand/style they're challenging.

      Interesting stuff really...the interviewer was actually directly challenging and dissing usyk eg 'you were slower/crap in that fight vs chisora' and usyk's like 'really?' (he's clearly just annoyed at this idiot and putting up with him for the sake of the interview'.

      in fact this interviewer is such a prat that he's making up his own version of events TO usyk.
      Eg "and then eddie hearn said mayweather also wears that brand"
      no, eddie didnt say that. That guy had watched the same video ive linked.

      ​​​​​​Usyk then says he had an injury.
      etc
      i cba watching the rest of it, but i get the gist.


      As for the ring, no my point was the ring/size was exactly the same for every card Matchroom put on during the time they were doing shows there. I think they did about 3-4 on the trot inc AJs fight with Pulev. Same ring/size.

      Actually again, Usyk's interview he's said he texted eddie and eddie said "it was the same size as the one you were in when you fought Tony Bellew", so to Usyk's credit HE was not claiming the ring was a problem. He's just acknowleding the interviewer trying to create that argument.


      smh, cant believe the nonsense in boxing.
