Muay Thai and boxing are both stand-up striking
styles that place a strong emphasis on punches.
Sport such as boxing incorporates pure pugilistic
elements, whereas Muay Thai uses different parts
of the body. As a combat sport, Muay Thai is
considered by many to be more complete than pure
boxing. A variety of techniques are employed in
the Thai martial art, also known as the "art of 8
limbs", such as punches, elbow strikes, knee
strikes, kicks, and clinching.
Muay Boran, the predecessor of Thai boxing,
refined the original moves for modern competitive
competition. As a result of its effectiveness, it
incorporates western boxing punch techniques as
well. Despite what many people believe, modern
Muay Thai derived its rules and format from
boxing, including the use of gloves for safety.
Both boxing and muay thai gloves have improved
over time to offer optimum protection and
performance for their respective sports, although
their appearance is similar.

Many gyms are now offering combat sports training
due to the popularity of mixed martial arts.
Various martial arts styles are practiced by
enthusiasts and competitors alike. Since boxing
gloves are often interchangeable for training, it
is common to refer to both sports as using boxing
gloves. Throughout this article, we compare the
basic differences between boxing gloves and Muay
Thai gloves to help you make an informed decision
before you make your next purchase.

In the UK, bare-knuckle boxing was popular until
the introduction of boxing gloves in the mid-18th
century. In 1867, boxing gloves were made
mandatory by the Marquess of Queensberry. In the
beginning, boxing gloves were similar to oven
mitts with minimal padding, but they grew more
padding over time. Comparatively to Muay Thai
gloves, modern boxing gloves feature more
streamlined silhouettes. In addition to the box
shape, there is extra padding concentrated in the
front area (knuckles) to reduce the impact of
punches. Additionally, the streamlined design
makes punches more powerful, piercing through
defenses more easily. Muay Thai sparring or
competitions are not recommended to be done with
boxing gloves due to their lack of overall
protection.

Features of Muay Thai Gloves
The history of Muay Thai begins with Muay Boran.
It was originally intended for unarmed combat on
the battlefield. Later, during periods of peace
in the early 18th century, it was marketed as a
competitive sport. It was common for Muay Thai
competitors to fight with hemp ropes around their
hands during the early days of the sport. At the
turn of the century, under King Rama VII,
significant steps were taken to modernize Thai
boxing. Among the new rules were the introduction
of boxing rings as well as the regulation of
boxing gloves for safety.

Due to changes made to the western boxing gloves,
Muay Thai gloves took on their current form. Muay
Thai gloves, in general, feature a rounded
silhouette with all-around padding to protect
hands completely. Extra padding provides
additional protection against elbows, punches,
and kicks. As well as being less rigid, Muay Thai
gloves usually have a flexible fit that allows
them to clinch.
Until recently, boxing gloves have been the
weapon of choice for boxing competitions and
professional boxers. For boxing training, Muay
Thai gloves are becoming increasingly popular due
to their excellent protection and versatility,
making them a great option for beginners and
non-competitive practitioners alike. Muay Thai
gloves are versatile and suitable for use in most
situations, regardless of whether you're training
Muay Thai or western boxing.
