4oz & 6oz
Up to 45Kg = 4oz to 6oz
45Kg to 67Kg = 8oz
67Kg to 80Kg = 10oz
Generally 4oz and 6oz are for young Athletes (Juniors up to 100Ibs or 45Kg).
Typically used for fighting and competition under 67Kg and also padwork. 100Ibs to 150Ibs/45 kg to 67Kg.
The smallest practical Adult glove is a great choice for hitting pads with your Coach or on the heavy bag. We recommend that you train with a 10oz glove before a competition so that you can emulate the gloves used in the fight. Used in competition above 67Kg.
The 12oz gloves are more commonly used for pads and light sparring. They’re also excellent to use when drilling with your training partner. The best all-around training glove is a 12oz if you’re not sure which one to buy. 68Kg to 79Kg.
Used mostly for sparring partners & a very good “all-rounder” glove. This is suitable to use in free-sparring & hitting pads. They are slightly lighter than the large 16oz & don’t tire your arms as much, when you’re hitting the pads.
Used for heavy sparring if you hit hard, have big hands or weigh over 80Kg. These gloves are essential in protection for your partners safety.
They are bigger and safer because they have a wider area, with more padding. You should definitely use these gloves when sparring, but they will also work great for pads. Over 175Ibs / 80Kg.
