The World Boxing Association (WBA) regrets the death of Alberto Reyes, owner of the historic Mexican company Cleto Reyes gloves, which were used in a number of fights of the black and gold title organization through many decades.
Mr. Reyes branded the company with his father in 1975 and officially founded it in 1979, the their globes now being dispersed across the world on nearly every continent.
Reyes globes were used by many great fighters, too many to list, but notably Muhammad Ali, Julio Cesar Chavez, Roberto Duran, Mike Tyson, and many many more.
The WBA deeply regrets the departure of a great man of boxing and a great contributor to the development of the pugilistic discipline. May he Rest In Peace.
