If you head down to the local boxing ring rockin’ a pair of these you better have a good idea of what you are doing. First off, I want to get it out of the way that these are sick boxing gloves. They are vegetable tanned cow leather, classic 12oz, hand made, with Velcro closures (much easier than trying to lace em up yourself). However, if you have such classy gloves you better be able to stick and move or you’ll look like a chump. With a little experience in the ring myself I always enjoyed preying on the new guy with shiny equipment and a swollen ego.
