  • If youre new to the exciting world of boxing,
    finding the right gloves can seem a little
    daunting, to say the least. There are literally
    hundreds of styles, types, and brands -- and not
    to mention how confusing the sizing can be!
    However, choosing the right pair of gloves is one
    of the most crucial things you can do when youre
    just getting started in the ring. In addition to
    affecting the quality of your training, wearing
    the wrong gloves can greatly increase your chance
    of injury over time.

  • They are an essential part of training, and
    having at least one or two reliable pairs is one
    of the first steps to getting started. But as you
    begin to sort through the sea of options
    available, youll quickly find that there are far
    more options than what you might have thought
    initially.

5
  • With all of these choices, it can be pretty
    difficult to know which one you should choose.
    This is especially true if you're not aware that
    there are some major differences between
    kickboxing gloves and boxing gloves. What are
    those differences, you ask? Keep reading to find
    out!?

Boxing Gloves vs. Kickboxing Gloves
  • Besides boxing, there are many different types of
    martial arts in the world. From Karate to
    Jujitsu, to Kung Fu and Krav Maga, martial arts
    comes in many forms. One of the martial arts that
    has become increasingly popular over the years
    is kickboxing.

7
  • Unlike boxing, Kickboxers use their feet as
    weapons of superiority over their opponent in
    addition to throwing a flurry of punches with
    their fists. The gloves used in kickboxing as
    well as in classic boxing are both used for
    protection, but how exactly do they compare?

8
  • The differences come primarily because of the
    intended use. 
  • Boxing is a sport that requires quick, heavy
    punches for prolonged periods of time. The main
    point of contact for each punch is on the
    knuckles of the hands, so its important they are
    well-protected.
  • On the other side, kickboxing is a martial art
    whose protective gear must be suitable both for
    striking, catching, clinching, and blocking
    kicks.

Here are the key differences
  • Shape and Style
  • Boxing Gloves. The primary weapon of every boxer
    is his or her fist. The clenched fist delivers a
    powerful and dense punch. Thats why most boxing
    gloves are rounded at the fingers - to help make
    a more natural fist.Since wrist protection is of
    the utmost importance, boxing gloves tend to have
    a larger cuff area that is attached to the hands
    with lace or Velcro. The idea is to make the
    gloves a natural extension of the forearms. 

10
  • Of course, there are many differences in the
    shape of boxing gloves that come from different
    brands. For example, some tend to have a rounded
    shape, while other brands are slightly flatter.
    Additionally, some boxing gloves are more angled
    in the fist area and thinner at the wrists. The
    overall goal of all popular boxing brands is to
    achieve a perfect position of tightly clenched
    fists.

11
  • Kickboxing Gloves. The shape of kickboxing gloves
    resembles that of boxing gloves, but there are
    some differences. For one, kickboxing gloves are
    squarer in shape and less rounded. They are not
    as aerodynamic as other types of gloves, and they
    are difficult to make quick combinations with.

12
  • Since the function of these gloves is different
    from that of boxing, most of them are slightly
    open at the palm and with a smaller cuff for
    greater flexibility. Kickboxing gloves usually
    dont have a mesh area in the palms like most
    boxing gloves do, which is one of their
    distinctive features. 

13
  • The Padding
  • Boxing Gloves. Boxers primarily use their fists
    to throw punch after punch in order to take down
    their opponent. As we mentioned, this puts a lot
    of stress on the knuckles, so boxing gloves are
    typically made with a lot of protective padding
    in this area.
