Boxing Gloves Sizes Choosing the correct size boxing gloves is not too difficult once you understand how the boxing gloves sizes work. The boxing gloves sizes go by the weight which is given in ounces and in increments of 2 ounces, starting with the smallest 2 oz boxing gloves designed for little kids. As the boxing gloves weight increases so does the hand size and the amount of padding on the gloves. The weight given in ounces is the weight of one glove so a pair of 10 oz boxing gloves should weight about 20 ounces in total. The more expensive higher quality gloves tend to be weighted more accurately. For regular training and sparring purposes a couple of ounces difference here or there in the weight of the boxing gloves is really not that critical. What size boxing gloves you should use depends on your physical size and what you want to do with your boxing gloves. For sparring in the gym you and your sparring partner will want to favour the larger size boxing gloves for more protection not only to protect your hands and your partner when punching but also larger gloves helps you to defend more. For punching the punching bag or other targets you should favour the heavier boxing gloves if you want more endurance training. If you want to train with more hand speed then you will go for lighter boxing gloves or bag mitt gloves that are more purpose built for punching targets. You can use the following size chart as good general guide only as you might wish to favour a smaller or larger size depending on your personal preferences and what you want to do with your boxing gloves.
