Boxing Glove Weights - Expained

Martial artists who are starting out and want to train in boxing should be educated on the right size and weight of glove for them. The size and weight of both boxing gloves is very important. Getting a glove that fits your hand correctly will keep you comfortable and safe. When shopping for the perfect pair of boxing gloves, you will oftentimes see weights instead of sizes. These weights refer to the actual weight of the glove. For example, 16 oz boxing gloves weigh 16 ounces. 12 oz boxing gloves weigh 12 ounces. In most cases weight also corresponds with size: The larger the glove weight, the larger the glove. This isn’t always true, but almost always. Gloves with more weight typically have more padding in them. 16 oz boxing gloves are usually preferred for sparring because they have more protection for both the striker and the opponent. Those are the basics. But watch the video to hear Revgear President and CEO Paul Reavlin to go a lot more in-depth on this topic. He explains the benefits of training with lighter gloves, the importance of know where a glove is weighted at, and the options for kids boxing gloves.
