What happened to Crawford’s gloves? Everlast explained everything


A few tens of seconds before the WBO welterweight world champion (up to 66.7 kg) Terence Crawford knocked out David Avanesyan, the fight was briefly suspended for event officials to examine the damage to both Everlast gloves used by the American.

The fight was allowed to continue without a change of gloves, and a knockout punch was dealt shortly after.

Some fans, as is customary, began to disperse the conspiracy theory: it is, they say, suspicious, did Terence cheat? Did you add plaster or?

As a result, Everlast blamed the incident on a “batch of defective leather” and said that Crawford had nothing to do with it at all.

Company statement
got long and 90% by PR. The only interesting part is this one:

“During the development of the non-standard combat gloves used in the fight between Crawford and Avanesyan, a batch of defective leather was used in production, which led to their damage during the fight,” the manufacturer admitted.

Further, they say in the company, a pause was announced in the battle to check the gloves, and the commission found that they were still suitable.

“There was no fraud, and there was no interference with the product by Crawford and his team,” Everlast wrote.


Terence, after the victory, said that he was “ready for anyone,” and he was far from being a fan, the absolute champion of the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) Jermell Charlo accused Crawford of empty chatter.
