I ordered the gloves in the beginning of December 2013 and received them on 25th of March 2014. No one keep informed me why the gloves are not produced, I had to ask Topboxer, because Bill told me so…Grant informed me every 20 days or so why my Custom Metallic Gold and Champagne gloves are not produced and sent to me!!! The Gloves looks very,very good, almost as good like Reyes Gold Edition or Grant Custom Metallic Gold and Champagne, or Perfekta Germina . The stitching is very good, but far from high end quality. The Gloves are snug on my hand, which I like very, very much. I never used wraps in my life, because official hand-to-hand style in Bulgarian army is Kyokushinkai Karate, famous for conditioning of the striking surfaces. The gloves feels ultra comfy, completely broken in. I received them at the same time I got my custom Winning SB-2000 and Grant customs and ‘till know I kept them in storage, but yesterday I finally annihilated the Winning and trained with the BEAULIEU’S! I put them on and went for some heavy bag work/Winning soft heavybag to be precise/ but during 7th round I started to feel strange pressure on my knuckles and after 8th round I discovered that I cut through the padding all the way up to the leather!!!! Why is that I don’t know. Maybe the padding is not meant for heavy bag? The Winnings served me well for 3 years and cost me less. BEAULIEU’s costed me 155 US$ excluding shipping, Winnings 150.
