  • Packing a punch in the gym begins with packing
    the right gear in your bag. For boxers, having
    quality gloves can help keep your hands
    comfortable and protected during training. Just
    like other protective gear, boxing gloves perform
    best when theyre properly sized. There are also
    varying styles of boxing gloves, ranging from
    general trainers to those specialized for fight
    night.

  • By understanding how to find the right size
    boxing gloves and how to determine which boxing
    glove style is right for you, youll be closer to
    putting a heavyweight swing into your boxing
    regimen. So go the distance with quality boxing
    equipment and find the right gloves with these
    important tips.

MEASUREMENTS NEEDED TO FIND THE RIGHT SIZE BOXING
GLOVE
  • Boxing gloves are at their best when they fit
    snug on the hand. In order to help fighters
    better identify which gloves they should train or
    fight with, glove sizes are displayed in ounces.
    These can range from 6oz. youth mitts to 20oz.
    heavyweight gloves. To find out which size is
    best for you, youll need three measurements
    your height, your weight and the circumference of
    your dominant hand.

  • While height and weight are rather easy to
    determine with a scale and measuring tape,
    measuring your hand circumference can be a little
    less obvious. In order to take an efficient
    reading, use a fabric tape measure and measure
    around your open dominant hand just below the
    knuckles. Your tape should meet in the center of
    your palm in order to get a clear number.

TYPES OF BOXING GLOVES
  • Despite all looking the same, boxing gloves can
    be specialized to perform different tasks. There
    are three types of training-related boxing gloves
    and two styles of competitive mitts. Each design
    has a unique quality that best suits its intended
    use.

8
BAG GLOVES
  • As the name suggests, bag gloves are meant to be
    used in heavy bag, speed bag or pad training. Bag
    gloves are designed with less padding in the
    knuckles than other boxing glove models. While it
    might seem counterintuitive to have a product
    with less padding, bag gloves are constructed
    this way to allow fighters to feel their punches
    and become accustomed to the impact. If an
    awkward punch is thrown or a fighters form is
    broken, they should be able to feel it in a bag
    glove and adjust accordingly.

TRAINING GLOVES
  • Training gloves are a great all-around option for
    boxers who are new to the sport. These gloves are
    built with sufficient padding and can be used for
    both bag work and sparring but arent necessarily
    specialized for either. Training gloves can be a
    great introductory glove with ample support for
    novice and veteran fighters alike.

10
SPARRING GLOVES
  • In contrast to training gloves, sparring
    gloves are built solely for sparring and have
    extra padding, not only to protect you, but also
    your sparring partner. Sparring gloves will be
    sized the same as trainers but can be a tad bit
    heavier due to the extra padding.

11
COMPETITION BOXING GLOVES
  • Competition-level gloves are designed with the
    fight in mind. With less padding in the knuckles,
    these gloves are built for your opponent to feel
    your strikes. There are two levels of competitive
    boxing gloves amateur and professional. Each
    follows sizing by weight division, with amateur
    gloves being more regulated due to the stricter
    rules at this level.
