    Hey y’all I just got these winning. 16 oz gloves off eBay, so far it looks legit. The leather is real, but when putting them on I don’t feel much wrist support, but the padding is good, ready to spar. I was expecting more out of these gloves because they have been hyped up. It came with the winning box but no tag.

    Tbh my rivals and Cleto Reyes feel a lot better.

    Can anybody tell if these are legit or not?

    You should have purchased the lace up version if you wanted good wrist support.

    Stock velcro Winning MS gloves are notorious for their sub-optimal wrist support.

    Yeah you’re right , however for some
    Reason I have the worst gag reflex with my mouth guard so I have to quickly remove and pull it out. Also at our club I wouldn’t have anyone to tie me up. I have seen lace up adaptors that was a potential option but I wasn’t sure if it would work for quick release.

    The Lace N Loop is a game changer.

    They're authentic.

    The only thing "fake" about the B series is the wrist support. They're significantly bad compared to most velcro/hook&loop gloves.

    Then again, Winnings are made for professionals.

    Pros who can get all the wrist support they need from having their hands professionally wrapped in gauze/tape/wraps.

    Thank you @deh707 I noticed another thing, the box everything is the same compared to my winning headgear box from Koubudo but on the lip of the box it says No.2 instead of No.1 on my headgear boxes. However, at the top of the box has remnants of postage from Japan on it.

    The seller told me that it's not the original box but the gloves are new.

    What do you think?

    I wouldn't put too much thought or worry into the boxes.

    All that matters is that the gloves are legit.

    I actually used to have those same exact gloves; 16oz MS600B velcro Black, and they look 100% exactly the same as mine did before I got rid of them to get the standard Lace-up MS version, to use with the Lace N Loop glove converters (which turn laceups into velcros with wrist support just as good as a laced up glove).

    Awesome thank you agian. I think I’ll try those lace converters on my buddy’s lace up and see how it works for me.
