I have used all sorts of gloves and I have gave you some good information . Maybe one day I will post a picture of my glove collection if I get around to it. The oldest I have is a 1980 pair of Seyer.

im having the problem too, i compete at 123 since they changed it from 126 :( basta*ds, anyway my middle knuckle on my right hand kills me and given ima a southpaw i tend to use my right WAY more than my left, i just ordered winnings like 5 days back but havnt heard anything from them, tried calling them in cali and nobody is picking up


i'd say go with winning, although i havnt tried grants (ima a reyes fan) will let you know how that goes if i get winnings anytime soon


I train with 16oz though, like i said ima a huge 123 lol normally walk around 146ish

Hah only 6 pounds? You have the luxury of just relaxing after your bouts ina tournament!
I get skipping some time after my fight to make weight for the next one lol,

But it really does help a lot, the height reach and power advantage I get is awesome



How tall are you?

Strangely those 6 pds are a bitch to lose, then again I train mostly for technique rather than weight loss

I'm 5'7

Depends the kind of frame you got you can't be a stocky thickly built 148 trying to get to 126 that would harm you sir on the other hand if your just fat or know you can lose some then try early morning empty stomach runs and sprints after gym at night

I bought a pair of 18oz winning lace up a month a go. The order came out to $345 shipped and it was worth every single penny. I was having lots of problems because I've always punched hard but I was coming back from a long lay off and weighing 288 lbs. So every punch had a lot of force behind it and my reyes bag gloves and hyabusa gloves weren't holding up. I had bruised knuckles everyday. I got fed up and ordered the winnings. Since they arrived(about 3 days after I placed the order) I haven't had bruised knuckles or any pain. They are literally a god send and they are great in sparring because I can go hard with no fear of hurting my sparring partner. Then theirs the quality. The leather is excellent and it smells great. The laces are really nice, the stitching is magnificent, and they still smell like new even after a month of boxing 5 days a week. Get them they are worth it. Hope my little review helped.

So tempted to buy some Winning gloves after reading all of the reviews and since I've had knuckle problems even when using 16oz gloves on the heavybag.

Anybody know how much a pair of 16oz gloves would cost to get shipped over to the UK?

Quality man.

So you just got the 18 oz pro gloves? I always wanted some I just wonder how they hold up over time on the bags.

I heard that winnings don't really wear down even after years of use, the padding just shifts
