10oz or 12oz ....... i prefer using 12oz though because we fight in 10oz and if you can get power in 12oz you can definatley get more in 10oz

18 oz for training and sparring in-house (guys from my gym), 16 oz for training sometimes and sparring out-house (guys from other gyms, or sometimes guys from my gym who are heavier, or have more experience/skill), 12 ozs on mitts/bags to get used to amateur glove weights on occassion....

Bag gloves are 14oz. Wish rival made some 16's, but the 14's are the heaviest bag gloves they make, still great gloves tho.
Training/sparring gloves are 16, the ones i have. But sometimes they make me use 18 oz gloves when i spar the lighter guys.

16's for both, i kinda feel its a bit of a dick move to use like 12oz gloves to spar someone from the same gym as you, sparring is a mutual thing of helping both get better, not to hurt the other person

yea, that is absolutely ridiculous, and frankly, i have trouble believing that any knowledgeable and self-respecting trainer would let you spar in 12 ozs. the worst i heard was in some philly gyms they use 14 ozs but even that is ridiculous imo.

10 oz for bag/padwork and 16 oz for sparring, although sometimes i use 10 oz for sparring to get real sharp before a fight, or if my trainer lets me....it doesnt matter too much because my sparring partner has like 20 kg on me and a pretty solid chin so nothing i throw can really hurt him....but mostly 16 oz for sparring

16 oz for everything. I can't imagine doing lighter, doing any sort of body work hurts my hands bad enough if the bag has had time to settle -_-

16oz for sparring is standard at my gym, but I sparred with a guy a week ago who was wearing 12oz kickboxing gloves (Windy) and he also weighed 40lbs heavier than me and I didn't feel any difference.

Now why was a guy allowed to wear 12oz gloves when he's sparring against a guy 40lbs lighter who is wearing 16oz ones? I don't know. lol

I have to train with 14 oz, everytime I switched to 12 my knuckels would hurt like crazy after time, never with 14 ozs. And for sparring my gym I think only allows most fighters to spar with 16oz.

16oz for everything, occasionally I'll use 10oz just to get used to the lighter gloves again. Shadowbox with or without 2lb hand weights.
