Ok, I have recently taken up fencing and noticed that the gloves are VERY similarly padded to Boba's. I said something about it to the coach at my school and he said bring a picture and he'd see if he could tell. As soon as I showed him a photo he identified them as definately fencing gloves and even gave me the brand name. I have it written down at work but forgot to bring it home with me. I'll post the company tomorrow. Unfortunately they went out of business not long ago, but it's something we can look into.
