Default Boxing gloves

Hey people,

i've got 2 question for you on this one.

1. Do different weight divisions wear different gloves? If not what weight does each division wear, if so, what is the universal weight of gloves?

2. I'm looking at buying a new pair of gloves. There primary use will be punching the heavy bag and working on focus mitts. I was wondering if i would be better of buying a pair of proper 10oz boxing gloves and getting used to the weight and feel of them, or, buying a pair of heavy bag traing gloves, the curled ones that dont have thumb support?

Any comments will be much appriciated, thanks in advance for your help.

Yes weight of the gloves matter in the pro's

Heavyweights wear ones larger then feather due to the size difference....

If you are wanting to hit the bag and mitts, I would suggest 12oz gloves they are heavier then most and if you decide to ever lace up a pair for a fight and the gloves are lighter your hands will fly...


I would have to give the nod on getting the ones with the thumb support, you need all the support you can get...

Also get some wraps first rule in bag work or whenever the gloves are on is WRAPS! Very important you dont need to hurt or break anything in your hands or wrist.

I weigh 76 kg (167 pounds). If i was to fight what weight gloves would i wear. Also i live in Australia and the only gloves i can find are Everlast Bronx collection. They do not lace up but have velcro straps, does this make much of a difference? Thanks for your help.

10 oz


Velcro straps are better for training, It is impossible to lace a glove up by yourself when one is on the other hand...

Go with Velcro.
