    I do not own any Grants, and have not researched that, however, several people on here do, and I believe the Grant website or telephone number is somehow linked in or together with Ringside (according to some post information that I have read) in some way. So, I am going to assume that they are a good place to get them. Maybe someone who has better information on that can add to this post.

    ^ This is what I believe.

    Here check out Title Boxing's photos, they seem up to date:

    Well Selling outdated products that aren't sold in Mexico is a pretty big deal to me and that's my point, those are not the gloves that people are looking for when they order Reyes gloves, they want the ones that are being sold in Mexico. Who's gonna guarantee me that Ringside or any of the other sellers outside of Mexico are out of stock of the old gloves and will send me the Reyes that I'm looking for and not the US version? And what is the Ringside tag for if there is no difference?

    And the video you posted basically confirms what i'm saying. Those are not the Reyes they're selling in Mexico. And they aren't outdated gloves either. It's a US version. The "authentic" Reyes in blue they're selling in Mexico don't have the black palm area. And the red ones (posted by royjoneschin) aren't outdated either. It's a US/UK version. The authentic ones are all red. They don't have a black thumb or black piping. They're all red. I know because i have them. :D

    There are so many people on ebay that confirm that the Mexican Reyes are not the same as the US version. I don't think they're lying.

    People have to decide for themselfs what they're gonna order.

    You're referring to my latter post, right? (the U.K. pics)

    What about the ones sold by Title Boxing? Those photos seem to be the Mexican Market ones, based on the colors matching the piping/inner thumb area.

    grants are all good, they are an american company that makes their gloves in mexico. their primary market is america, so they sell the best in america.

    i left them at the gym. just got them yesterday. i bought a pair from grupo hamd and these ones my girlfriend got from mexico also. they're the same exact glove. never seen or tried on the ringsides ones... so i cant tell you if they're different or not.

    i will post pics asap.

    This is speculation from my part, but I'm pretty sure boxing gloves are regulated in the states, and they probably have to pass some tests that the mexican market glove can't to get in. Not that it's a bad thing, mind you.

    and heres a pic of my sparring gear. i use the reyes for bag/mitt work and casanovas for sparring. reyes gloves actually have alittle more padding on the knuckle area but its the shape that makes these a punchers glove. it has more of a curved shape on the end of the fist... making it more pointy. while casanovas have less padding but land more flat.
