Ring To Cage have outdone themselves by creating the Ring To Cage C17 2.0 Japanese Style Boxing Gloves. It is not known to many, but this is the second iteration of the glove.
Instead of simply calling it Ring To Cage C-17 Boxing gloves, they now name it Ring To Cage C17 “Japanese Style” Boxing Gloves. Mainly because they used the Winning Boxing gloves’ construct and design as their template.
No brand can compete with the legendary Winning Boxing Gloves. However, the R2C’s C-17 boxing gloves did a good shot. It offers the same feel, protection, and security. However, the quality is obviously not at par with Winning.

The most notable feature of Ring To Cage’s C17 Japanese Style Boxing Gloves is its layered padding. The protection these gloves provide is almost on par with Winning.

More importantly, these gloves have little to no need of a “break in period”. That means no uncomfortable or painful phases from the start.
