Everlast is beloved by fighters for the legitimate reason that they're taken care of by fighter consultants like Ernie Gabion @eaner0919. Fighters get hooked up with gloves and gear for training, and they get customs for fights. This is also why Grant can do business the way they do (horrible cs) because folks see fighters with their stuff and pay premium for what they think will be "top of the line." Even with decent designs and materials, Everlast has horrible quality control and customer service. Ringside is going this way as well (which is sad). Supporting guys like 1V1, Topboxer, R2C is necessary, I think. Competition is the only thing that keeps companies humble and doing the right thing. Anyone considering getting into making quality gloves as a business should do it, if they're business savvy. Not only does it create more options for consumers, but it will force companies like Everalst that used to be quality to maybe go back to that quality or better it.
