    kid gloves

    Anthony is a boxing coach trying to scout Teo and he says "kid gloves" which is translated as "when Teo was a rookie". Is it a rookie or a place name or what else?

    g.h
    Anthony- teo. Remember me? Anthony majors.
    We met in brooklyn, kid gloves, a couple years ago.
    Teo-
    You saw me fight fast louie leone.

    My guess is that "Kid Gloves," in this context, is the name of a boxing center for young people. Thus, it would follow that Teo was a novice when he boxed there.
    BTW, keannu, try to remember that proper nouns are always capitalized.
