It'll depend on the exact model of the glove, but usually the only thing that makes the measurements bigger is the extra thickness of the padding.

If you tell us what you will be using the gloves for we can help you decide what size/type you would need. Generally speaking if you want them for bag and pad work, you should use 12 or 14 ounce bag gloves (depends on how big you are and how hard you hit), and use 16 oz sparring or "training" gloves for sparring (again, it depends how big you are and how hard you hit. Don't go below 16 oz, but if your a giant you can get 18 and even 20 ounce gloves).

Don't use bag gloves for sparring, they will hurt your training partner too much. Don't use sparring gloves for bag/pad work. Even though they may be 4 ounces heavier than your 12 ounce bag gloves, they don't have as much protection for the hand because the padding is softer to protect your partners face.
