How do you choose boxing gloves?
Boxing is a so-called "strike" combat sport. Boxing gloves are designed to protect both the boxer's body and hands (for example, when parrying), as well as their opponent. This is to prevent injury to both parties.
Which size glove to choose?
The size of gloves is given in oz (which is the abbreviation of "ounce", a British unit of measurement used worldwide for boxing gloves). The "oz" represents the weight of the gloves (and therefore their level of protection) and is chosen in accordance with the boxer's weight.
Weight of glove: Your weight
- 6 oz: < 45 kg
- 8 oz: 45 to 65 kg
- 10 oz: 65 to 78 kg
- 12 oz: 78 to 90 kg
- 14 oz: > 90 kg
- 16 oz: > 90 kg for even greater protection.
