Fans were made to wait for the show and the problem with the gloves confused several on social media.

One boxing fan wrote: “Brooks changing gloves in the ring, what’s going on. Delay was down to a dispute about hand wraps according to ESPN. Don’t they agree on gloves being worn in advance to the fight?”

Another added: “Never seen gloves changed in the ring in all my years of watching boxing. You’d swear it was Brooks first fight!”
