There are several licensed boxing gloves available in different styles and types to choose from.
The aspects that are similar in all of them are that boxing gloves must be laced, that their weight must be right, i.e. 8 oz or 10 oz, that the glove construction is sufficient, and that the materials used are of high quality.
In professional fights, approved laced boxing gloves are permitted for use by fighters.
