Boxing Gloves are essential for the success and safety of every boxer, whether he is a beginner or an expert. They are manufactured with such a material and quality that they can be used equally in both practice and professional matches and protects both the fighter and his opponent.
There are different types of Boxing Gloves, and each serves a particular purpose.
- Sparring Gloves
- Bag Gloves
- Competition Gloves
- Training Gloves
- Importance and Use
As obvious from the name, Professional Boxing Gloves are mainly developed for use in Professional Matches and Competitions, and often sacrifice the safety of hand and sometimes ease to increase offense. Generally, the padding is much stronger that makes the Gloves more compact and smaller.
These Gloves are manufactured to deliver the as sharp blow as possible with every punch. Professional Boxing Gloves are not suitable for everyday exercise and should not be used much outside the contest. For most competitions, 8-10 oz Boxing Gloves are used depending on the weight. Pro Gloves are mostly always lace-up, as it is rare for high-level competitions to allow the usage of Velcro Gloves.
Boxing Gloves are not only used for Boxing. They are also used in a variety of Combat Sports and Martial Arts. As a result, a variety of Gloves have been manufactured depending upon the particular Sport. For example, ‘Thai Boxing’ uses Gloves that are slightly different from Boxing Gloves. Likewise, MMA Gloves are open fingered Gloves that are smaller in size with less padding.
Unlike other Martial Arts, Boxing is amazingly limited in its moves. In Boxing, only the fists are used, which means there is a high risk of harm done to the body parts and head. Before the modern rules were established, Boxing was much riskier. Boxing without Gloves creates a high risk of cuts and can also lead to the broken bones of the hand. It was also very common to use dirty strategies to provide harm to the opponent intentionally.
Boxing Gloves solved these types of issues and problems. The Gloves fix around the hand and form a fist shape with a protective boundary over the back of the hand, fingers, and thumb. The padding decreases the strength of the effects that are faced by both the hand and the enemy, significantly increasing the protection.
Although the effect that Gloves have on brain concussions and injuries is not usually huge or severe if special care or protection is not taken, these blows can sometimes lead to serious damage to the brain. So, it is recommended to use a glove that fits your wrist and is comfortable to put on or off.
Nowadays, many Professional Boxing Gloves are Velcro-type that provides more stability and protection to your hand. Besides this, high-density foam padding is also used to absorb shocks, etc.
While smaller Boxing Gloves are used in the fight, it is always better to use heavier padded Gloves for Sparring and Training to increase Protection. Headgear is an essential part of Training Gear that must be used for the Protection of the Head.
The Boxing Gloves of different sizes and weights are available depending upon the grade of the fighter. Professional Boxers usually use Gloves with a high level of padding as it provides them better protection and defense. They typically are available, ranging from 8-20 oz.
