Conor McGregor Shows Off Cleto Reyes Gloves During Training

Conor McGregor is notorious for being a fan of Cleto Reyes boxing gloves and of Mexican culture overall. Before his fight against Floyd Mayweather, he praised the handmade Mexican gloves and even laughed at Mayweather’s fear of the lighter glove.

McGregor recently made his love for Mexican boxing gloves evident once again, sharing a picture of him with a big pair of Cleto Reyes gloves during training. He also said the McGregors love Mexico, especially since his son was born on Cinco de Mayo.

“Working in the big Mexican gloves today,” wrote McGregor. “Made from either cowhide or goatskin, and stuffed with horsehair, they are a lovely weighty glove, and known globally as the ‘punchers glove.'”

He went on to talk about how some boxing contests ban the Cleto Reyes glove “because of lack of bottle.” McGregor also reminded fans that “Muhammad Ali was a big fan of these gloves” and how Ali’s fondness of the glove brought Cleto Reyes to the forefront of boxing equipment.

The Irishman admitted that although he prefers his 4oz MMA gloves, and that he didn’t know about Cleto Reyes until starting his pro career, he does “enjoy the fit and the feel of this [Cleto Reyes] glove.” McGregor ended his message of support for Cleto Reyes by reminding everyone that Mexicans and the Irish are very similar.

“The Mexicans are of a strong breed. Just like the Irish,” he wrote. “I have a lot of respect for Mexico. My son was also born on Cinco de Mayo. Mexico, the McGregors love you!” Perhaps the best comparison, though, was when he explained how tequila, just like whiskey, “puts hair on your chest.”

“Tequila, another phenomenal Mexican-made product,” wrote McGregor. “Just like my Irish whiskey, it is for the powerful, and the driven. There is an Irish saying that our whiskey ‘will put hairs on your chest.’ It is why there is a big gorilla on mine.”

Thank you for all the love, Conor!
