I am looking for something with really good hand protection for all around training. Pads, bag, and sparring. Price does not matter. Just want to know what glove offers the best hand protection?

I have heard good things about "Winning"

any others I should know about?

winning gloves are the most protective, but the most expensive.

for the price, i like ringside imf gloves.

i also have grant gloves that are very protective and offer great wrist support, but ringside just upped the price of the grant pros to 150! ouch.

the new everlast pro training gloves seem quality as well. just tried out a lace-up pair the other day and they were very comfortable and seemed to be pretty well padded. they were sleek to and felt lighter than they weighed.

yea. they're nice, but get the sparring gloves if you want to spar. better to hit the bags with sparring gloves than spar with bag gloves. imo, bag gloves aren't even necessary.

i use a mixture of 18 oz gloves (for sparring "in-house" at my gym and for the majority of my training), 16 oz (for sparring "out-house" competition from other gyms and to change up my training sometime) and amateur 12 oz's (to get used to the harder impact of amateur gloves on my hands and to get used to my hands flying around faster than lighting after training with 18 oz gloves all the time!)

i use them for sparring too and they work very good imo.
i was thinking of the training imf tech gloves, but the issue with them is that its impossible to put the wrist band on your own, you need help :P.



btw look these everlast gloves, first time ive seen them on the everlast website, they are expensive but they must really be an amazing pair of gloves for that price, and they look very nice too. i would love to try them.

for FIGHTS >> everlast / winning / grant

for SPARRING >> ringside / winning / grant

for BAG WORK >> RIVAL / winning

well... if money is NOT an option, go with winning everything. there's a reason pros like pacquiao, de la hoya, cotto, margarito, vargas and mayweather all use it in training. its the lightest, most comfortable, most supportive/protective gear on the market.

I have said it a few times, people seem to be reluctant because they are a new brand but Rival gloves are the best gloves i ever used. I recently bought some 14 oz bag ones and 16 oz sparring ones and i couldn't be happier, not only do they offer the best protection but they are really comfortable and durable. I used grants, everlast and title gloves to hit the bag in the past and i go through a pair every 6 months, i had my rival for 2 months now and they are the same as when i bought them, padding hasnt even softened up.

I can't say they offer the most protection because I haven't tried every brand, but Rival gloves are great.

Depending on what model you get, they aren't very expensive either. I have the "Super Bag Gloves" (http://rivalboxing.com/e/rb2-e.html). They were only $60CDN +shipping and they are outstanding.

why would you recommend gloves for fights, you arent even allowed to bring your own gloves

IMO you just need a pair for sparring and a pair for bag work, so your sparring gloves dont wear out
