Boxing Gloves Size Guide


Generally, 6 oz is for young athletes (juniors).
(Up to 100 lbs – 45 kg)


Typically used for fighting and competition only. Very small on adult hands so reserved for full contact tournaments and fights. Best used for women and youths. Also very regular in competitions in the stadiums of Thailand.
(Up to 100 lbs – 45 kg)


The smallest practical adult glove, a great choice for hitting pads with your coach or on the heavy bag. A 10oz glove will be appropriate for someone with smaller hands looking to hone techniques. We recommend you to train with 10oz before a competition so that you can emulate the gloves used in the fight.
(100 lbs – 150 lbs / 45 kg – 67 kg)


The 12oz is more common use for pads and light sparring. Works also excellent to use when drilling with your training partner. The best all-around training glove is a 12 oz glove if you are not sure what size to buy.
(100 lbs – 150 lbs / 45 kg – 67 kg)


Used mostly for sparring and a very good “all-rounder” glove. This size is suitable to use in free-sparring and hitting pads. They are slightly lighter than the large 16oz’s and as such don’t tire your arms as much when you’re hitting pads.
(151 lbs – 175 lbs / 68 kg – 79 kg)


Used for heavy sparring. If you hit hard, have big hands or weighs over 80 kg, these gloves are essential in protecting your partner’s safety. They are bigger and safer because they have a wider area with more padding. You should definitely use these gloves when you are sparring, but they will also work great for pads.
(Over 175 lbs / 80 kg)
