    Im gonna be using my gloves for bag work and possibly pads what weight do you recommend

    I go by how much it hurts when you hit the heavy bag. If you keep coming home with bruised knuckles and a bunch of cuts, and you know that you are wrapping your hands properly, you should move up in weight to 1. get more protection and 2. slow down your punches. I'm only 130 lbs, but I need 16 oz gloves, otherwise my hands are like hamburger after a couple of days.

    I weigh 175/180 and I usually use 18oz gloves but yeah ur right i should use a 16 oz. but like u said, I like to use the heavier ounce to build speed and strength. good video!!

    It's cool to play boxer at your house and everything but you have no business training fighters. You don't know the basics yourself. You don't choose a glove primarily on how much you weigh. 16 oz is standard for training regardless of weight class. You can always go higher but never go lower.

    I'm 6'3 and 163 lbs, I'm a pretty thin/weak guy. Should I aim for a 12-13 oz instead of 14 (cause I lack strength), or just go for the 14 oz? I'm planning on only using them for training, since I'm definitely not able to spar with anyone older than maybe 12.

    I am a beginner still looking for my first pair of glvoes. I think this video is simpler and clearer for me to understand but I also know that there are more reasons to choose different sizes no matter how I weight. Please advise me to choose the right size for me. Since each brand has different size formats, I will put my favorite brand (aesthetically) first to start off.

    – I would like to choose one of these brands: Title / Venum / Superare (new brand).
    – I am 130 lbs., 5’8”, 3.5” knuckle width, 8” circumference, total hand 7” length.
    – I don’t do sparring at all. I mostly use it for light/heavy bag work with my personal trainer and fitness.
    – My knuckles are still soft so i need a good pair of protective and fit gloves.
    – My price range is between $80 – $120.

    Please advise me to choose the right size! Any information will be helpful for starter like me! Thank you.

    Im 70 kg. And 5'4 ft. I do pads and heavy bag workouts. Not interested with sparring as I only do boxing for weight loss. What glove should i buy? Thanks.

    It's more about preference I'm 135lbs and I used to use 16oz gloves and now I use 12 and 10oz sometimes so like just pick a glove that'll protect your hand and you should be good

    What if you are 185lbs'ish 5'10 and just want to get #YOLO and use 14oz? I use 16oz currently but they feel to heavy

  17. Reply Kay Bee June 5, 2018 at 5:57 pm

    I weigh 185lbs and prefer to use 10oz gloves for pad and bag work. I feel I throw with better technique because I have to make sure I connect with the correct part of the knuckles due to there being less protection. Since using lighter gloves I have also noticed my power has increased which I presume is due to the extra focus Ive had to put on correct form.

    I always prefer heavier gloves for training (drills, heavy bags, etc.). For my other pair of gloves its sparring, I use lighter gloves

  19. Reply • PlatinumJack June 5, 2018 at 7:04 pm

    Use 16oz/18oz gloves for heavy bag and training. Then when you put on 12oz/14oz for sparring watch how fast and strong you’re going to hit.

    This isn't boxing, this is fighting with gloves. Also, both techniques are horrible, in a FIGHT, never slow down to think or pace yourself and watch the opponent, the more time he has to think the more of a chance your ass is hitting the floor.
