Boxing gloves

How to choose boxing gloves? What kind of boxing gloves do I need!?

The best way to get started is to determine the purpose. There are several types of boxing gloves, each with its purpose.:

Bag Gloves: Bag gloves are designed to be used when doing bag work. They are designed to protect your hands when hitting a heavy bag. You are hitting the heavy bag and the gloves absorb shocks. This is OK but that makes them too solid for sparring.

-Sparring gloves: Sparring gloves are constructed from soft foam so as not to hurt your partner when sparring, but their soft padding wears out quickly when they’re used on the heavy bag.

There is one special type of sparring gloves that are designed exclusively for professional fighters only.

  • Competition (fight)sparring gloves: they are created for a fight. For the real fight. With less padding in the knuckles, these gloves are designed for your opponent to feel your hits.


-Training Gloves: These are multi-functional gloves that can be used for a variety of activities. They are the best choice if you are doing a mixture of sparring and hard bag work. The bad news is that most all-purpose gloves don’t last when they аre used for everything.
