I love the Boxeo gloves! I’ve owned Boxeo in the past and have always been very satisfied. They are the best Mexican-made gloves for sparring in my opinion. You just need to break them in a little bit at first of course. Hand protection is great and the quality of the leather is top-notch. I think it may be goat leather but I’m not 100% sure on that...it does feel a little more supple and thicker than regular boxing glove leather. The gloves have that great new leather smell to them too. The only thing I’m not crazy about is the thumb positioning. However, I have this issue with pretty much all Mexican brands where it seems like the thumbs go out to the side too much. I might have just gotten spoiled by the thumb compartment on Winning gloves. But the thumb positioning on Boxeo gloves isn’t that bad, and it gets more comfortable as you break them in, so it’s not really a big deal to me. Have you been talking to the guy from 95erathleticclub on Instagram? His gloves definitely aren’t fake. I just bought a new pair of Juan’s TM gloves from him that arrived yesterday. What was making you think they might not be authentic?
