    The thing is, Cleto Reyes gloves are also horsehair gloves so I'm not sure what the big deal it.

    I honestly believe Brook and Hearn are scared as hell. Of Rios nonetheless, I mean he's not even a big puncher.
    The competition Cleto's are half horsehair, half foam. I think there's a full horsehair model as well, but you gotta know where to buy them.

    A few guys at my gym have the Everlast MX in 16's and even then the knuckle protection is shyt. God knows how 8's feel late in a fight when the padding begins breaking down. I could see the need for a puncher's glove or people that like to feel their knuckles in their gloves, but those MX's are really pushing it as far as using it to hit people. We aren't savages.

      Good, boxing is dangerous enough as is. You can knock someone out with a standard set of boxing gloves. If a fighter feels the need to use gloves that have minimal padding around the knuckles, he'd be better off working on his technique and conditioning.

        Do you think Eddie Hearn is head of the commission? Kell Brook has fought multiple guys who wore those gloves incl. Shawn Porter. Honestly, if you think Kell Brook is afraid of Brandon Rios or those gloves..

        I don't know what to tell you. With that level of stupidity; life's going to be tough for you.
        Porter wore Powerlocks not MX against brook

If a glove is not fit for the purposes of boxing legally, it should be removed. Boxing is dangerous enough without unnecessary damage done by I'll regulated safety gear.
          The commissions tightening up regulation and establishing a glove rubric, is different than limiting boxers to only one type/brand of glove. Let's look at this weekend: Walters/Marriaga wore Reyes, Wilder/Verdejo/Najera wore Everlast, and Molina/Lara/Rodriguez wore Grants.

          If the American commissions feel as strongly as the UK about these particular type of Everlast gloves, then they'll follow suit and prohibit fighters from using them. Rios will just have to find some other glove to use against Brook, plain and simple.

                So Mayweather was terrified?

                That's very honest of you to admit.
