Two of Philly’s Finest Sign with Cov Glove, Plus Cov Glove Is Now USA Boxing Certified

PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 25, 2011 — Boxing’s latest innovation, Cov Glove has signed IBF Cruiserweight champion, Steve “USS” Cunningham and number-one ranked Welterweight Mike Jones to endorse the product.

Cov Glove has all been certified by USA Boxing and the product was worn by all competitors in the just completed United States National Championship tournament.

“I am ecstatic to have these two tremendous fighters as the first two guys who endorse the Cov Glove,” said Cov Glove founder David Price.

“Steve and Mike’s record’s speak for themselves and to have them represent the Cov Glove shows our commitment and I can’t think of two better fighters and men to be a part of our team.”

“This is a great product and I feel that all commissions should approve it,” said Cunningham

“I been using it for a few years now and I have never had a problem with it and I love that I know that the action will never be stopped due to tape coming loose.  I am happy to endorse Cov Glove and hopefully more fighters will see the value in wearing the product.”

Cunningham, 24-2 with twelve knockouts is a two-time IBF Cruiserweight champion who is known for taking on anyone, anywhere at any time as evidenced by him fighting, winning and defending his world title all over the planet.

Jones is one of the hottest fighters in the world as he is perfect in his twenty-five bouts with nineteen knockouts.  He has appeared on major Pay Per View shows and on HBO by beating Jesus Soto Karass.  On June 25th he stopped Raul Munoz in two rounds in Philadelphia

“Since I was introduced to Cov Glove, I was a believer in it.  It gives me the confidence that I know that my tape will never come loose.  It’s definitely a product that all fighters should wear.  Whenever I fight, the Cov Glove will be with me as it definitely goes hand and glove,” said the undefeated Jones.

As pertaining to Cov Glove being USA Boxing certified, the founder believes that it is a prelude to being a worldwide product on all levels.

“I am very happy that we received the certification by USA Boxing.  It’s an opportunity for the young men in the amateurs to get used to the Cov Glove and they will feel comfortable with the Cov Glove as they embark on their pro careers.  I know that some of the decision makers in boxing will also be able to see the benefits of the Cov Glove.  I think that success Cov Glove had at the Nationals shows that fighters should be able to wear it in major tournaments and world title bouts all over the world.”

 The Cov Glove is a leather sleeve that covers the tape around the wrist. The Cov Glove protects the fighter from having his tape come loose as well as protecting his opponent from Tape scraping against his head and eyes.
