Leather boxing gloves probably from the sixties. Boxing gloves with padding, so called mufflers, were an invention of the Englishman Jack Broughton who created them for his students in the middle of the eighteenth century. Until then boxers only used basic straps of leather or rope, including those competing at the ancient Olympic Games. These gloves are made of genuine leather, the outer part is made in black colour, inner in natural white leather. The gloves can be laced up on the inner side of wrists. They are in a very good condition, with firm seams, without any major wear or tear.
