    My gearbag is already huge. Shinguards, shoes, mouthpiece, headgear, cup, jumprope, wraps, gloves.

    Is it really that bad to use one pair of gloves? Somehow I lost one of my gloves recently. It must have fallen out and I didn't notice.

    I'd rather just get one nice pair of gloves like winning (what I have for my headgear and cup) than two cheaper ones.

    Am I going to ruin my winning gloves if I use them on the heavybag?

    Also, is Velcro ok? I got laces for my last gloves and used a velcro converter. Wwyd

    Just get a pair of bag mitts for the heavy bag. Easy peasy.

    I decided to just accept that I'll need 2 pairs of gloves and ordered bgv9s for bag. Will visit kazumichi for sparring gloves when my wallet is ready.

    Lmao that’s pretty hilarious actually. I would absolutely buy that just for the style points alone. Report back with your experience

    Lol .For bag/mitts only? Sure.

    But with such a low quality right glove like that, I would definitely use a high quality knuckle guard such as Winning NG2 or Skulltec green model.

    I actually use a combination of the 2 knuckle guards by stripping away the nylon band of the NG2s, then taping the remains (dual layer sheets) onto a single layer of the Skulltec greens.

    Phenomenal protection, but I primarily use them with pro fight gloves.

    On another note... I have a right hand 16oz velcro Cleto Reyes extra padding glove in near new condition... saw it on ebay last year and snatched it for $55 .

    Let me know if interested lol.

    Only semi-seriously. Each to their own.
