    4- Winning gloves pure pillows


    i keep seeing people saying this. last i checked, which wasn't all that long ago, everlast had no less than three types of pro gloves. the MX is the punchers' glove you are talking about. maidana uses it.


    anybody willing to go to their website can verify this. i just don't give enough of a f#ck.

    Reyes-Like most of you guys have said Reyes as punchers gloves. I know my sparring partner feels my punches when I wear Reyes.

    Winning-Very protective to your hands and your sparring partner. Basically pillow gloves.

    Grant-A mix of Winning and Reyes but more on the Winning side.

    Any one used Rival gloves before? I been seeing a lot at my local gym but haven't gotten on to trying them.


    i haven't even put my hand in a rival glove yet, but i hear great things. i also see that they are rather expensive.

    i don't think i've heard anybody with anything bad to say about rival gloves.

    I'll still take my Everlast 10 & 12 oz gloves,made in the U.S. I've had them for 15-20 years now & have 6-7 pairs.

    The Reyes gloves always felt small, most lighter boxers who can pop wore Reyes in the "gym wars".

    Grants are for punchers with hand issues.

    Everlast makes a "tween" model for boxer/punchers like Andre Ward that I bought for my daughters. They all have pink 10 oz Everlast gloves.

    boxers choose gloves based on their style
    mayweather has hand problems and is a defensive fighter. He used to use cleto reyes till he started hurting his woman hands and switched to grants which have more padding on the wrist for support and stability . And softer padding on the handed
    I think he usses winning gloves to spar might as well wear pillows

    Pac man used Reyes as he is a puncher and what's to hurt you cleto are more packs and firm on the fist

    Cotto wears everlasting which are in between grants and cleto soft enough for protection but but also a stiffness for banging kinda like cottos style


    everlast has several pro gloves.

    it often comes down to money [a deal either fighter has with a sponsor.]

    certain commissions only allow certain gloves. many commissions require you to wear the same glove as your opponent.


    winning are the best gloves. they're made the best, wear the least for a modern glove, are the most comfortable by all accounts, and they provide the best protection for your hands. they don't allow you to do a ton of damage, as they have a more formed outer shell [ i think it's synthetic leather in a winning glove,] and are very well padded int he knuckles. grant are the same way, only they use real leather, at least in every grant i've ever owned.

    everlast has several gloves. the MX is the glove many punchers use, inlcuding chino maidana when he get s a chance. the other two are a boxer's glove [what ward uses, it's well padded and formed] and a hybrid of both. this may have changed some, as i haven't bought a boxing glove in around five years.


    reyes are a classic mexican puncher's glove. loose leather [this is what cuts people,] horse hair over the knuckles, soft leather, padding that moves around and is loose.

    a soft glove sounds nice, but a real puncher will put his knuckles on you, and that's what does the damage. a hard glove feels and sounds like it would be hard on you and your sparring partners, but once they're broken in they're actually much better.

    Grant are hit and miss. I've had 3 misses in a row. Their consumer gloves are often ill fitting because their QC sucks. The company doesn't give a damn.

    Winning tend to be a little soft in the ring but the most protective for sparring.
