Boxing gloves are a key element in the sport. Here’s what you need to know to choose the right one.

-Sparring gloves.

The purpose of these is the  protection for your hands, so they usually have extra padding, they’re not meant to hurt your opponent.  They’re weighted from 16 to 20 oz.

-Training gloves.

These are use for all training purposes, they come in a wide range of weights, sizes and colors. If you’re just starting out, you can just use these gloves for any type of training.

-Fighting/Competition gloves.

As the name implies, these are use during competition fights or events. The padding is firmer and they are designed to deliver a sharp blow. They’re mostly all laced up.  It’s best if you just use them in fights.

Make sure to check with your trainer the weight and size of your gloves. Check out our complete list of boxing gloves here:
