What ever glove comes out. It will probably be surrounded by controversy

For everyone that said that the gloves are not the issue, I agree with you. The problem lies in the fact that there is not enough of a penalty for the eye poking.

A minor eye poke should result in a warning. Any eye poke after that should have an automatic point deduction.

A major eye poke that forces a stoppage prematurely to a fight should result in a automatic disqualification.

Oh, you lost a #1 contender fight because of an eye poke DQ? Tough shit, you should have kept your hand closed. It seems a bit harsh, but it's the only way to stop the eye pokes without altering the glove.



Exactly. If there was a true penalty for it, guys would never stick their fingers out like that again. It's really no more difficult to keep space with a closed fist, or even using the back of an open hand rather than a palm.

Daron Cruickshank is one offender, constantly keeping his hands open, pawing at Makdessi in their last fight.
