1996 Roy Jones Jr. fight worn gloves v Eric Lucas
These are the original Cleto Reyes 10oz professional boxing gloves worn by Roy Jones Jr. in his 1996 fight with Eric Lucas. The match was for Jones' IBF super-middleweight title. Lucas was totally outclassed, and battered into retirement at the end of the eleventh round. The gloves came from the collection of Roy Jones' former corner-man Ronald Reese, who kept many of his fight worn items. Reese had them all bagged and labelled so he knew which fight they were from. The gloves were then purchased by a dealer who bought the majority of Roy's fight worn gear, from both Ronald Reese and directly from Roy himself. Included in the sale is original photos of him with Roy and Ronald. Also included is Reese's credential from the Lucas fight, and a signed letter of authenticity from the dealer who sourced the gloves, explaining how he acquired them. The gloves can be photo and video matched to the fight. They are the correct style & color, and show the appropriate signs of fight wear. They are a fantastic keepsake from a period when Roy was practically unbeatable!
