    In case they were indeed made by topboxer (for somebody) they are the only Grant labeled gloves of a good quality on the market :)

    Take a look at the Bill logo. Very, very similar look as with the grant logo on the first pair linked.

    Definitely fake. Looks like they bought Top Boxer gloves with no logo on them, then screen printed the Grant logo themselves.

    Grants always have a white outline on the logo to contrast with the dark surface. Their triple cuff is all one piece of padding divided by the stitching as well, not three separate layers of padding like Muhammad's gloves. I seen the seller also has some white velcro gloves; I don't think grant makes velcro gloves either. The customer will end up with a better quality product, but too bad they won't know who the actual maker is.

    ^Grant do make velcro closure gloves. These are obviously fakes though, made by Topboxer, and the person who bought them then added Grant logos.


    For some reason Ive never seen fake Grants with welted seams. Youd think they would include that

    I don't think they are trained in spotting boxing glove differences since they don't hang around sherdog. Maybe if we all report him they might do something?

    Given the number of gloves for sale, I'm sure Top Boxer knows the seller. I wonder if he could avoid selling to him in the future?

    Why so? To save Grant company? :)

    It would not be as brilliant as it seems. You can never avoid idiots like this seller. His brother can buy on behalf of him or some of his friends or whoever. So why?

    Screw it. If he is buying from Top Boxer....then Top Boxer is making money. Why avoid selling to someone who is putting the green in your pocket? If I made gloves and some person was buying them left and right and spray painting a Winning logo on them....I wouldn't care. Im making money:)

    Notice that he labelled the gloves boxing gloves instead of Grant.

    I wouldn't support bootlegged gear regardless of the quality, and regardless of who might profit from it.
