“The Gloves Come Off at Amazon and Wal-Mart”

“The Gloves Come Off at Amazon and Wal-Mart” is the title of a front page story about a price war between the two retail companies this fall.

In normal boxing matches the boxers wear gloves. A blow is cushioned by the padded gloves both for the boxer hitting (punching) his opponent and for the opponent being hit. If gloves are taken off the match becomes tougher for both.
