yes you need heavier gloves in sparring with more padding to protect your opponents face basically. sparring is just training and you dont want to hurt your opponent. so as a general rule people use 16 oz gloves when they spar. if you are really small you can also use 12-14 oz for sparring. if you are heavy and you hit hard you can also use 18 oz. and since tyson was one of the hardest punchers he probably had to use real heavy gloves to protect his sparring partner
