Danny Green Caught With Un-Padded Gloves
 
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

The contracts called for Everlast or Winning brand gloves, but Green's camp arrived with Grants gloves, carefully screenprinted with the "Green" logo.

A proud Tarver refused to wear them, and armed with the wording of the contract he threatened to walk away from the fight unless they were changed.
But as this was going on Tarver's trainer Buddy McGirt, brought in a fortnight ago for just this reason, picked up a glove and walked away from the crowd.

He put the glove on and felt barely any padding over the knuckle. Beautiful, he thought.

He called Tarver over and told him to try the glove on, and Tarver also soon realised how little padding over the knuckle the glove carried.

"Shut the f ... up," McGirt said, and they walked back and, ahem, reluctantly accepted the glove. It had a devastating effect last night.

wow!

Removed padding from the glove, this has been done before, Hyder is shonky. Most likely had them specially made for the fight, who the hell is responsible for approving the use of these gloves? Hahaha no plaster casts so they use gloves with less padding and it backfired on them! hahaha classic.

fenech used to love reyes gloves. known as punchers gloves. even though fenech wasnt a puncher. gloves work both ways....

Reyes due to its shape is a punchers glove (not padding) but WAY more dangerous on your hands & lots of fighters avoid them fearing a broken hand.

If any of this true regarding Green...sad sad stuff really....perhaps Tarver having a lawyer was justified.
Buddy McGirt knows his stuff.

Jeff at times was too committed i might use the word "stubborn".
No shame tho, as in his prime Fenech was a beast.

I really don't understand this. Green wanted Tarver to wear gloves with the Green logo and Tarver refused. McGirt picked up A glove and walked away. Realised the glove he had had little padding. Now as we all saw Tarver was wearing a pair of blue Grant gloves.

The original article states:

The contracts called for Everlast or Winning brand gloves, but Green's camp arrived with Grants gloves, carefully screenprinted with the "Green" logo.

So where do these blue Grant gloves just magically appear from? Tarver brought them here himself? If anything it sounds like Tarver was doing a dodgy. Fair enough to refuse to wear the gloves with the Green Machine Logo but once again we all saw last night Tarver had on BLUE Grant gloves. The article goes on to state:

"Shut the f ... up," McGirt said, and they walked back and, ahem, reluctantly accepted the glove. It had a devastating effect last night.

This makes it sound as if they (TARVER) used the gloves with the little padding. Once again two thing I don't understand. If the contract called for Everlast or Winning where did these Grant gloves come from? Two if McGirt picks up the dodgy gloves and tells Tarver to not say anything and wear them, why are you people saying it was Hyder being dirty?

I am so happy about the result of last nights fight and I am absolutely no Green/Hyder fan but I don't know why you guys are saying it was the Green team doing a dodgy.

Sounds like a load of bull to me although what is that blue stuff in Danny Green's powerade bottle? It's clearly not powerade.

as far as i know, it is the weight of the glove that counts, not where the padding is situated. i know i fought a few times with old horse hair gloves where all the hair was down in the fingers and just leather on my knuckles. cant say i noticed during the fight though. you seem to forget everything except whats in front of you.

ps. i was a highly forgetable fighter....

Mundine and Green are two massive frauds and disgraces to boxing.

I hope you Aussies have some young blood coming through.
