For A Person Who Is Not Trying To Be A Quote "ring Boxer" But Really Just Wants To Have The Power, Speed To Be Able To Street Fight, Or Be Able To Knock Someone Out In A Bar Fight If Needed, Is Gloves Really Needed For Hitting The Heavy Bag? I'm A Workout Freak, But Used To Only Lift Weights. I Noticed My Punching Is Not Very Strong Because Im To Bulky. So Now I Want To Start Doing More Cardio, Mainly Hitting Speed Bag And Heavy Bag. I Want To Be Able To Punch Really Fast And Really Hard. Do I Need Gloves For This? Any Advice On How To Hit Fast And Hard? Thanks For Any Info.

If your going to go hard out on the bag you should definetly wear gloves, or atleast wear hand wraps or you will end up with alot of hand injurys, and very easily get swollen and bruised knuckles and after awhile your knuckles tend to sink in if you dont wear the protective gear..

The gloves are intended to protect your hand so use them.
