Boxing gloves should fit like, well, a glove! We offer a range of punch mitts, sparring gloves and boxing gloves that will help reduce injury during training.
Punch mitts are required for various purposes which is why they often come in different weights. The main function of the gloves is to protect the boxer’s hands and minimise the damage done to the opponent’s face during a match. The lighter weight gloves are often used for competition matches whereas the heavier weight gloves are used for training. The heavier the glove, the more padding it includes giving you more protection. As training lasts longer than a match the heavier gloves reduce any potential damage. The benefit of training with a heavy glove is they will speed up your punches during competition when you are using lighter gloves. It is often advised that beginner boxers start with a lighter weight glove, this makes training easier as they will be able to hold up their hands to protect themselves. For training purposes, sparring gloves are often the best choice. Sparring gloves offer a little extra padding which help protect you and your sparring opponent. It is equally important not to overlook hand wraps. Often inexpensive, hand wraps are an essential for training as they offer you a little extra protection.
