Is he not taping his hands? Every amateur fighter I have ever met tapes their hands under their gloves.

nope, amateurs only wrap their hands, not tape them... in AIBA amateur competitions taping hands isn't allowed, although I think it would not even have the same effect as when pro boxers tape wearing those gloves they fight in.

There have always been pro boxing world champions from the former Soviet Union's republics and Russia itself, and twice Olympic and twice amateur world champion Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko just now is coming to a pro boxing!... I believe in two years he will dominate 61 kg weight division leaving no chances to any Afro-American, Mexican, or Filipino boxer... unfortunately pro boxing is 45 % about promoters and business and only the rest depends on boxers...



........yeah that KO was crazy though........





Nothing crazy, it's boxing wearing thin gloves and taped hands, and the boxers are top hitters in the world... sooner or later it happens, and they have plenty of rounds to catch each other... but when Lomachenko enters the game you will see even more impressive knock outs.. he is even able to knock down in those extremely well padded safe structure amateur gloves, without taped hands...


Yeah it was like he walked right into that right hand from Marquez.....cray cray

Lomachenko is already world class. Delighted he has gone pro. Should be an exciting few years watching him come through.

Well, I just learned something new. In the US it looks like both are legal, so that explains why I am so used to seeing tape.

Link to U.S. Olympic Team rule book:
http://assets.teamusa.org/...er_from_CEO.pdf

Section 103.5 of Rule book reads:
Bandages (hand wraps) and tape specifications
(1) The purpose of bandages is to protect a boxerâ??s hands, not to add force to a
blow.
(2) For competitions within the United States, each boxer shall wear hand wraps
that are made of cotton gauze, or soft surgical gauze, or velpeau (velpeau
use reference (3) below).
(a) Cotton/soft surgical gauze - 15 yards of 2-inch gauze and a minimum of
3 feet, and a maximum of 6 feet of 1 inch adhesive tape per hand. The
tape must be applied 1 inch behind the knuckles. Only 3/4 inch tape may
be applied between fingers and may not cover the striking surface of the
hand.
FIGURES 14.3

(b) Velpeau - A boxer electing to use Velpeau is allowed to use a minimum
of 3 feet, and a maximum of 6 feet of 1-inch adhesive tape per hand.
(3) For International Competitions, each boxer shall wear hand wraps that are
made of Velpeau.
(a) Velpeau - All weights, up to 2.5 meters (equivalent to 8 feet 2 1/4 inches),
with a strip of 1 inch adhesive tape by 8 inches in length which may
secure the bandages around the wrist.
(4) Only the above substances may be used on the hand.

Yes, it seems that in the USA amateur gloves' standard is allowed to slightly vary from AIBA standard, and it looks that some partial taping is allowed but still - not cowering striking surface, and the length of the tape is very limited. While professionals are allowed to tape the whole hand including striking surface. But this could probably also vary from one federation to another:), and there are four of them, and some even have different weight divisions, I am sure you can find all the details if you have time:)
