Choosing the best boxing gloves is not easy. Failure to own top-notch gloves can turn the boxer with severe injuries on hand. Not only that, but inferior quality gloves fall faster. Therefore, it is necessary to get a great pair of gloves which work perfectly for several months, if not years in training sessions or matches. A boxer can avail pair of gloves which is backed with a digital elasticity for fighting, sparring and grabbing. It not only helps to reduce the risk of hard blows but also acts as a protective shield in fights. While buying a pair, one must check the proper size as loose or tight pair can restrict the finger movements.

The gears are made up of either leather or polystyrene comprising a thick layer of foam inside for resistance. They are often worn over the hand wraps which ensure a complete protection and provide good grip for hands. Not only this, these gears protect fingers, knuckles and wrist from getting injured during fights.

The boxing gloves that fighters wear are available in varied styles and weight. Depending upon the size of the hand, one can avail small, medium and large gloves. The average man for instance can look for large size while average woman can check medium one. The weight ranges from 10-20 ounces per pair. The fighters prefer to wear 10 ounces in real matches.

One can differentiate the boxing gloves on basis of performance i.e. for punching heavy bags instructors suggest to buy bag gloves while boxing gloves are designed for advanced boxers. Both the categories are padded properly to support hands, knuckles, and wrist of a fighter.
