GloveGate?

Postby Masato » Mon Mar 23, 2020 8:15 pm

Hey all

I just stumbled into this - how long has this controversy existed?

Folks are accusing Fury of cheating by messing with his glove or something?

Archiving for later, haven't looked into it yet:

Its just Wilder and his team trying to stir up interest for the trilogy, barely any boxing fans are biting though Wilder does have a legion of blind fanboys.

Have you looked into this yet? Is it true that 'barely any boxing fans are biting'?

I was gonna start the research with a Teddy Atlas video I saw.

They're saying that he was wearing his boxing glove in a manner that allowed him to land the equivalent of bareknuckle blows with the glove finger pad flapping unused.

It looks like a foul to me.

Atlas crushes it;



I’d be curious to hear if anyone could put up a rebuttal to that

Had to dig a few pages back on sherdog to find this:

pros don't seem to be buying it either:

I watched Teddys video and he is basically saying Fury is using his glove in a certain way that could be considered borderline illegal so a step down from the tampered gloves claim. Some have been calling Furys style dirty or "slap boxing" and I can see why with those clips, the floppy glove ones all seem to be from the first fight though. Also its not hard to find clips of boxers using the lower part of the glove if you go looking through their fights: https://gfycat.com/nervousgrippinggar-p ... ime-boxing
