Did anyone on here give a logical explanation for Fury's floppy gloves?

    If what you're saying is true - that it's just a flicking jab - after Fury flicks, he palm strikes Wilder. Not punches. Straight palm to side of the face.

    Now of course, palm strikes are illegal. But the ref was on the wrong side.

    The Ali jab always connected with the knuckle to face despite being a flick. He never palm struck anyone.

    But if he didn't actually flick, and his fist was lower in the glove, his fist would have connected square on Deontay's face.



    Now I'll ask again.

    Has anyone come up with a logical explanation for the floppy glove?

    here's the so called floppy glove on repeat at normal speed.

    I really don't understand what people are going on about. When you slow it right down it may have a baggy effect to it, as it looks like the glove had come loose and slipped down slightly. That's about the end of it as far as I can tell.

    Putting your fist in the wrist of a boxing glove is not a thing

      I actually saw a video breaking down the type of gloves Fury used and they had footage of a fight where Canelo used the same gloves and it had the same floppy action. It's because the padding in that particular glove moves around a lot which is good for punchers but also bad for the hands long term.

      It's the same model glove that Floyd wouldn't let Marcos wear and I think Wilder used to use them early in his career which may have contributed to his hand problems. I think it's the Everlast MX something?

        OK, so a possible logical.

        Then if Fury is wearing those same gloves in the third fight and they don't flop, it debunks the "this how dem gloves do" theory, and I expect NSB to be suspicious.

        If Fury wears Grant gloves in the third fight, and they're still flopping, I expect NSB to be suspicious.

          But he has a snippet of the floppy glove.

          Was there ever a logical answer to that?

          I know it's NSB where logic is scarce, but I know there's a few smart people here.

          They don't want to talk about it.

          Steve Cunningham made a video on it.

          We'll see what happens in the 3rd fight.

            Absolutely, as you should.

              And Fury's hand would get smashed to pieces. Gloves aren't worn to protect their opponent's face, they and hand wraps are worn to protect their HANDS.

              I'm pretty sure we've gone over this before. Unless he added gypsum to his hand wraps he won't have done a thing with his gloves.

              Maybe I've replied to this twice?

                Not on a "flicking jab" as you call it.

                You can't have it both ways, bro.

                Either (A) it's a flicking jab, which opens the possibility Fury was landing fist-on-jaw (which would NOT smash his hand if he didn't use full force), or (B) it wasn't a flicking jab, which raises the question about why it's a palm strike.

                  My honest answer about this controversy. Unfortunately when we moved West permanently I left my boxing equipment in the basement. Until I get some gloves and try to see how a floppy glove could happen I have not said anything about this controversy.

                    I was referring to the hook you were talking about, not the jab.

                      So if you're saying it's perfectly acceptable to palm strike on a hook (it isn't), then it's obvious why Wilder was thrown off balance with a busted ear drum.

                      The question now is whether Fury can do the same damage without using palm strikes. Because if he doesn't do the palm strike in the third fight and Wilder isn't thrown off, it adds fuel to the fire.
