to a good poster - jas 
Default When did Heavyweights stop using 8oz gloves?

Today if up to 147lbs you can wear 8oz gloves, but are 154lbs and over you have to wear 10oz gloves.

Anyone know when Heavyweights were required to wear 10oz gloves?

That's a good question. I've only been able to guess it was sometime in the 80's.

Wasn't it around the same time they phased out 15 rd fights, in the 80s.. I think it was post Mancini-Korean fight and around the time the IBF came around
