Cleto Reyes Castro was born on April 26th 1920 in Mexico City. Cleto had to start working at the age of 12 in a saddlery that manufactured baseball goods. In 1938, cleto reyes took part in an amateur fight. His performance was so outstanding that the public ended up throwing coins into the ring floor; however, the pounding was so hard that he was convinced not to fight again. He chose, instead, to mead the gloves he had used during the fight and this started his career in glove manufacture. subsequently his gloves obtained the approval of the local boxing commission (COMBOX DF), and in 1945 the Cleto Reyes gloves were used in a world championship fight for first time on Television.
