The Best Types of Boxing Gloves for Beginners

There are many different types of boxing gloves available which are made to suit everybody and each type has its own purpose.

Professional or advanced level boxers have at least 4 pairs of gloves for different training activities. When taking up boxing, beginners however, need one pair that will protect their hands well and at the same time be suitable for most beginner activities such as pad work or punch bag training.

The majority of beginners that start boxing often buy training gloves for pads or punch bag gloves. There are some differences between both of these two, so it depends on what activities you’ll primarily be involving yourself with. Many boxing gloves brands refer to both glove types simply as boxing gloves so it can be a little confusing for beginners starting in the world of boxing.

Boxing Training Gloves: These usually come in size 10oz 12oz or 14oz and are considered as gloves that can be utilised for a number of activities including pad workouts, punch bag sessions and also for sparring sessions. You should probably buy size 14oz boxing gloves to cover most boxing activities with just one pair of gloves, and as you develop your skills perhaps buy different types of gloves

Punch Bag Gloves: If your objective is to increase punching power and to improve skills when throwing big shots such as hooks then you should consider buying size 16oz boxing gloves (or 18oz or 20oz if you are a heavyweight). Many boxers use size 16oz boxing gloves against their punch bags at home, as well as for punch bag workouts at the boxing gym. Punch bag gloves weigh more because they contain more padding which protects your hands and wrists a lot more than the lighter boxing gloves.

Whichever type of boxing gloves you buy, the best boxing gloves for beginners must be comfortable to wear after you have already strapped your hands with hand wraps for additional protection.

A suitable pair of boxing gloves will perfectly fit over the shape of your hand, fingers and wrists. A good pair of gloves will never hurt your hands after a punch.

Remember that all boxing gloves have a break-in period and for this reason the chances are that they will not be 100% comfortable the very first time you use them, but after a few good boxing sessions your new boxing gloves should contour to the shape of your hands and become perfectly comfortable.

Just give your new boxing gloves a few weeks so that they can fully adapt to your exact fit.
