I'm a beginning amateur boxer. I have been using the gloves and other equipment that my gym already has. I was thinking about investing in my own gloves, headgear, etc.

Anyone buy Title or know anything about it?
Any suggestions on any online stores?

Ringside.com man. I suggest purchasing the IMF tech lace up training gloves and the MHG mexican style headgear. I've been extremely satisfied with both items.

Hope this helps.

thanks Migs!

The funny thing is that both of those items are back ordered.
What sizes did you go with on each of those?

I used a large headgear and I think the gloves were a large too. You can always call them too and they should be able to give a good idea of what sizes you'll need.

Ill be honest with you, In boxing 99% of the time the more you pay the better quality and life youll get! Ill start out from top to bottom.
Headgear- winning, grant, reyes all these three companies charge around 100 and up for their headgear and think about it man, Its your HEAD you only get one, why go cheap and pay for it in the long run by your braincells?
mouthpiece- you probley already have one but if you dont just get a brain pad double.
gloves- Once again your probebley more likley to get hurt or be less comfy if its a cheap glove, grant,winning,reyes, everlast, rival and ringside are great gloves but I wouldnt suggest title gloves due to them not lasting long with anyone ive met including myself.

I really want to get 16ozwell if its the gyms policy then i guess your forced to go 18oz. I think 16oz is perfect because its good protection and its only a pound in weight.

i just got the title gel training gloves after using a pair at my gym and loving them, and a pro at my gym says they're the best training gloves he's used lol

if your trainer said 18s, get 18s. we use 18s at our gym, but most gyms do spar with 16s. trust me, a lot of kids can still BANG with 18s on.

i like the title platinum headgear. it protects well. downside: it moves around when you get hit with grazing shots.

as someone else said- ringside imf tech lace ups. i just got these and i love em.

10's or 12's, depending on your weight class.

At my gym we use 16's for sparring, and 18's for heavyweight or above.

The Title Gel Training Gloves are awesome. The Ringside IMF Tech gloves are the best bang for the buck, IMO. They are stiff, comfortable, and low-profile, & they give a good thump even at 16 oz.

I use the new Rival headgear (search for the thread) and I love it, though I had my doubts at first. My foul protector is from Title and my shoes are Everlast low top. I use a Brainpad upper-and-lower mouthguard and highly recommend it. I like all my gear; if I buy it and don't like it, I donate it to my gym.

It's worth the money to get the good gear. Always. Buy the best you can afford.

YOO

i have bought online from title 3 seperate times... i HIGHLY suggest their site, not only for the title gear but becuase they have everlast and rival, and even more name brands to choose from.. their shipping is very fast, even overseas.. and equipment is always delivered in mint condition

if u want details of what i bought let me know.. quality is quality tho.. u will find it in title/ everlast / grant / rival / reyes , they all got online stores

what do you guys prefer or think is better: lace up or elastic cuff?

Lace up hands down. It's going to give you the best wrist support. You can only tighten the elastic cuffed gloves so much but the lace ups can be pulled tight so it's snug around your wrist. When I got my IMF gloves I originally wanted the hook in loop for convenience of getting the glove on and off but they sent me the lace ups and when I tried them on I was hooked immediately. Safety, comfort, and support > than convenience.
