PRO X-ILD 7 SERIES
WHEN GOING INTO BATTLE THE WEAPONS OF CHOICE ARE OF PERSONAL PREFERENCE.
Top champion fighters are a special breed but they are only human and very individual at that, they have strengths and weaknesses like any other, and although these are recognised and can be built upon, some traits whether good or bad are genetic and the true fighter will play to the strengths and compensate where they can for their weaknesses.
A great puncher will possibly require a less padded glove to take advantage of the force of the punch they can throw at their opponent, but a less powerful puncher but an endurance fighter may want a more padded glove to stave off initial attack and to tire their opponent out over many rounds before causing a late stoppage.
Iron Heart Sports calls this the Effective but Protective syndrome when looking at manufacturing their gloves and realise
that no one particular glove type will suit all boxers.
Ask any fighter on their favourite gloves and you may get a thousand different replies, some will choose for technical reasons comfort and fit, others may have superstitious reasons perhaps due to a winning streak and are reluctant to change the gloves, others may have received a hand injury and decided it was the glove that caused the damage and will never use again.
