|As early as 648 BC, the martial art known as Pankration was introduced into the Greek Olympic Games. A blend of boxing and wrestling, the Spartans were taught to use this ancient technique with the sole purpose of fighting and killing on the battlefield.The Greek and Roman boxers of that time used an ancient battle glove called the Cestus to keep their hands protected during competition while they would strike their opponents using these gloves made of leather strips and sometimes filled with iron plates or fitted with blades or spikes – lucky for your heavy bags or sparring partner ours are just made out of leather and filled with foam.
Ahead of his 1964 world title bout with Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali makes his legendary ‘I Am The Greatest’ speech. Had the Main Event glove been around during that time and endorsed him, history may have been re-written had he declared ‘I Am The Greatest’ and I Have the Greatest Gloves’.
The Main Event Boxing Pro Glove (No. 1), five-layers of form-fitting, evenly distributed padding for your opponents safety and for your enjoyment, designed with shock-absorbing memory foam that lasts longer and protects better like a good anti-perspirant than the competition’s low-grade stuffing, made with breathable top-grain real leather and double-stitched seams for durability and quality.
These are the kind of gloves that when you wear them out in public, people are afraid to say anything to you because you are a bad ass. The name alone ‘Main Event’ speaks volumes to the type of person that wears these gloves as anything else is just an under card.
