The ‘Uni Boxing Glove’ [patent]

“Too often deaths occur to boxers because of the devastating head trauma received in a boxing match or during practice. A glove that would lessen the trauma without diminishing the excitement and skill of the sport, would certainly be a welcome addition to the art.”

The welcome addition in question was the creation of the ‘Uni Boxing Glove’ from inventor Aurillo Cummings (US Patent 7904967B1, 2008)

As the name suggests, the invention replaces a boxer’s pair of gloves with one uni-glove [see drawings]

BONUS Assignment [optional]

The patent document doesn’t go into much detail regarding how one big glove might be less damaging than two smaller ones. Elaborate.
