an interesting point is....how come the ref did not notice anything?
Have wondered that myself - they took a big, and probably desperate gamble on that when they took the padding out.
Apparently, even though the bout was only a preliminary to Duran vs Davey Moore, there was a lot of money (most of it crooked I'm sure) riding on a Resto win.
Must have another look at the fight clip and see if it's ever obvious that the gloves have been hollowed.
