Finding the Perfect Boxing Gloves: A Comprehensive “Boxing Gloves Guide” by BOXHAUS

In the world of boxing, boxing gloves are the essential tool. Our hands are not naturally designed to deliver punches, and the stresses of boxing can, in the long term, lead to hematomas, capsule and ankle injuries, and even broken bones. This is exactly where boxing gloves come into play — They protect you as an athlete from these dangers.

Another important aspect is protecting your opponent. When training, the focus is usually not on maximum hitting, but rather on testing techniques. The cushioning properties of the boxing gloves make this targeted practice possible. The boxing gloves commonly used today have thick padding above the back of the hand and in front of the fist. They are pre-curved to conform to the anatomy of your hand, and the thumb is sewn to prevent overstretching in the event of a miss. In Olympic amateur boxing, fitness boxing and often in training, the practical Velcro fasteners are common, which also stabilize your wrist.

In professional boxing, however, lace-up gloves are usually used, which fit slightly better, but may require the help of a partner to put them on.

 

The unit for dividing boxing gloves is the weight in ounces (oz), where one ounce weighs exactly 28.3495231 grams.

At this point we would like to dispel a myth: The unit “ounces” (oz) simply indicates the weight of the boxing gloves. It says nothing about the size of the gloves or the cushioning properties.

Boxing gloves How do you find the right gloves?

It's actually not that easy. Here are some selection criteria:

► For children up to 10 years old, we recommend selecting ounces based on age. So a child aged 6 or 7 should ideally have a 6 oz glove, while a child aged 8 or 9 should wear an 8 oz glove.
► Women generally prefer a weight of 10 or 12 ounces. Muay Thai boxing gloves are also suitable for women as they are always slightly smaller in cut.
► Men like to start with 12 or 14 Oz, for larger hands and advanced training we definitely recommend a higher weight, as the gloves fit larger as the weight increases .
► If you want to train dynamic techniques, a lighter weight of 10 or 12 ounces is ideal.
► However, if you rely on strength and endurance, you should use a higher weight of 14 or 16 ounces.
► In sparring it is important to protect the opponent, so a weight of 12 ounces or more is recommended; the higher weight and the greater cushioning that is usually associated with it effectively prevent injuries.

What number of ounces?

8 ounces = 226.8 grams

10 ounces = 283.5 grams

12 ounces = 340.5 grams

14 ounces = 396.9 grams

16 ounces = 453.6 grams

The more ounces, the heavier the boxing glove. However, heavier weight doesn't necessarily mean you can hit harder. The speed of your punch affects the power of the punch more than the weight of the glove. The rule of thumb is: "The more ounces, the lower the risk of injury during exercise." For training and sparring, we recommend boxing gloves from 12 oz, depending on your training level and body weight. If you are working on claws and want to train fast, dynamic punch combinations, lighter gloves like 10 oz are recommended. If, on the other hand, you want to exert your strength on the punching bag, the gloves can be a little heavier - Here 12 oz and more are the rule.

A different rule applies to competitions:

Amateur boxing:

  • All weight and age groups box with 10 oz boxing gloves, except for men (elite), for whom 12 oz is required.

Professional boxing:

  • From mini fly to welterweight 8 oz

  • Semi-medium to heavyweight 10 oz
