Default i have a big schnoz. headgear suggestions?

so my trainer says it's time for sparring but i need to buy headgear. is there any headgear that MIGHT protect my big nose a little more than others? or does it even make a difference? i'm looking to buy training headgear.

i see that some headgear has the cheek protectors that extend further towards the nose and are a bit more padded, does that make the difference?

No lets be real here, boxing is a sport where we get punched in the face round after round, theirs a reason a good deal leave the sport with unique noses. If getting my nose busted was my main concern i'd be exploring other options...just sayin...

it's not my main concern at all, i know its bound to happen again that i'll probably bust my nose, but i would say the less i do it the better. i'm fully aware that you cant enter the sport and not expect to get a few injuries.

no nose injuries, but concussions are a ***** and you can't avoid that in boxing
