New dude shows up to try Muay Thai class in the (rather gritty) place I train in. We do the usual "What's your name? Nice to meet you? Have you trained elsewhere?" formalities out of the way. Says he never trained before. Then, when he starts pulling his gear out of his bag, my boy motions for me to look. Dude breaks out a brand new pair of high grade Grant boxing gloves (Mayweather & Holyfield's choice) that I know run about $800. I was thinking "Who buys $800 gloves to TRY a class?... Must be nice. Hell, I have trained for decades and have never spent more than $200 on gloves.
I was thinking that If he doesn't like it, I'll offer him $200 for his "used" gloves lol. Crazy thing is that I heard him ask how much it cost to train there. Uh...probably not enough for you to concern yourself with my man. Yeah... I am a little jealous of his gloves.
