    i keep reading guys here think the best bag glove on the market atm is the fairtex bgv-9 series but i never see them when i try t search for fairtex gloves i seem t see the bgv-11 ect is the 9 really that much different from the others? curious as iv never even used fairtex

    the only thai gloves iv used were windy and sandee i prefer boxing gloves so never went after thais much also until now thai gloves use t cost a shit ton more minimum 65 dollars

    if they cost 100 dollars i dont see how they would be better than those of top boxer for around same price curious about them as i like the look but their are some great gloves atm for 100 bucks like the winning clones from ring to cage120 dollar stock top boxer gloves ect

    I own Topboxer and I own Fairtex BGV-9 The BGV-9 is my favorite glove of all time, I have only ever been able to get them off vendors on Ebay however. They're not the easiest gloves to source and I'm not even sure if Fairtex still make them to be honest.
    BGV-9's will last you a very long time, they're firm, they protect the hands and they are quality construction

    Topboxer is quality construction, customization and he is always looking for ways to improve. I use my BGV9's for bagwork and my topboxer's for everything else.

    I'm in Australia. Fairtex gloves are (or used to be not sure a little bit out of the loop) hand made. I've owned Cleto Reyes and I preferred my Fairtex ones over them. That being said gloves that work for someone won't work for another it comes down to personal preference.
    Do you prefer the mexican style or the winning style of gloves? Make your choice based off of that, I'm yet to try Topboxers Mexican Style gloves but they will be my next purchase.

    They are available on amazon.com shipped from Thailand. I have in fact just received my 2nd pair from the same seller as my first (still going strong). The colours/sizes available had drastically reduced, but thankfully there were some left in white 12oz. They are sexy as fuck!
