Boxing Gloves

Cheap boxing gloves are the equivalent of novelty running shoes. Would you do a 30-minute session on the treadmill in backless, platform, patent leather runners? Not without breaking your neck!

When it comes to purchasing boxing gloves, taking a cheap shot isn't an option. Gloves are worn to protect your hands and reduce any shock delivered to your wrists, elbows and shoulder joints. Boxing gloves weighing 16-ounces supply adequate protection for beginners and those who choose to spar. They should also fit snugly but comfortably. Since you should always wear hand wraps under your gloves for added protection, bring them along and wrap your hands before trying on boxing gloves.

There are 4 important factors to bring to the ring when choosing boxing gloves:

Size Boxing gloves are available in small, medium and large sizes. Medium will generally fit the average woman's hands; while large will fit the average man's hands.

Weight Boxing gloves range in weight from 10 to 20 ounces. Professional boxers want lighter gloves for faster punches, so they generally choose 10-ounce gloves. However, for basic training and beginners 12- to 16-ounce gloves are recommended. Keep in mind that heavier boxing gloves provide more protective padding.

Material Boxing gloves are either of leather or synthetic construction. In the long run, leather gloves cost a little extra, but they'll last twice as long and offer better protection and support.
