Interestingly I thought the idea was to land the shot. If the glove if too wide one way and it fits through the other I think I would make the Adjustment.

It also means that to get around the gloves you are going to go longer with the hook thus opening yourself up more. You can go long and be more accurate with the palm down because you are trying to land your knuckles to establish the power line. After all, the desired aim is to rattle that chin isn't it.
