Buying Guide: Boxing Gloves UAE


If you want to buy the right boxing gloves in Dubai, you should consider a few important factors. Without specialist knowledge it is just a matter of luck to order the right boxing gloves. We make our expert knowledge available to you here and recommend the right models for you. In this guide, we explain what is important when choosing boxing gloves and how to determine the right size.


Why are boxing gloves so important?


Boxing is a contact sport and the injury rate is correspondingly high. Wearing good boxing gloves is important to ensure your hands continue to function for the rest of your life and to protect yourself from injury.


The boxing glove protects the hands from serious injuries by stabilizing them. But diseases such as weakened joints and muscles as well as arthritis are also prevented by the boxing glove. Of course, that sounds scary, but it can happen.


You protect your head with good headgear when boxing, and you should also protect your hands by wearing good boxing gloves.


In fact, some boxing gloves are not only designed to protect your own hands, but have extra padding to protect your opponent from serious injury. This makes sense especially during daily boxing training, because you don’t necessarily want to knock out your partner right away. hit.


A good pair of boxing gloves will feel comfortable and fit around your wrist and fingers. The boxing gloves should not tire your hand or force you into an uncomfortable fighting position. This is where specific gravity comes into play.


First of all, you have to know that boxing gloves are not differentiated by sizes such as S/M or L, but purely by the total weight of the gloves, which is given in OZ, that is, ounces. Boxing gloves are divided into the following sizes:


Weight of the different boxing glove sizes:


  • 6 oz - Weight: 170.8 g

  • 8oz - Weight: 226.8g

  • 10oz - Weight: 283.5g

  • 12 oz - Weight: 340.5 g

  • 14 oz - Weight: 396.9 g

  • 16 oz - Weight : 439.6 g


Recommendation of boxing gloves size according to body weight:


  • Men and women for competition: Buy 10 OZ boxing gloves

  • Women for training : Buy 10 oz to 12 oz boxing gloves

  • For sparring - training body weight 75 kg : Buy 12 OZ boxing gloves

  • For sparring - training from 75 kg to 85 kg : Buy 14 OZ boxing gloves

  • For sparring and training from 85 kg body weight to over 100 kg body weight: Buy 16 oz


You should always buy boxing gloves for boxing training or sparring that match your body weight, since you have a much higher or lower punching power depending on your body weight. 


The padding of the boxing gloves increases the higher the number of ounces of the total weight of your boxing gloves. See boxing gloves size chart above.


Boxing gloves for men and women - are there differences?


Men's boxing gloves or women's boxing gloves differ only in the smaller fit that women's boxing gloves should have so that they should also fit women's hands. Women's boxing gloves should have a short shaft at the wrist and a smaller volume inside the glove.

High quality boxing gloves will withstand every punch over and over again without losing the cushioning properties. The material used in manufacturing is very important and can be an indication of how long the boxing glove will last before it tears and loses its cushioning.


But before you buy your new boxing gloves, note that a cheap glove can have a better fit and cushioning than an expensive one when you try it on for the first time. However, this usually does not remain the case in the long term and far more factors play an important role. So don't be fooled by the first impression.


Find the correct boxing glove size:


Beginners in particular have the problem of choosing the right size for boxing gloves and then usually buy the wrong ones. These are then much too big for them or simply much too small and therefore not ideal for boxing training.


If you also have the problem and are wondering which boxing glove size you should take, then here are some tips for you. Because there are some mistakes you can make when buying. It is normal for boxing gloves to be measured in OZ (ounces). It is noticeable that boxing gloves with 10 OZ are slightly smaller than those with 14 OZ, for example.


As a result, the punch with the 10 OZ boxing gloves can be much harder than with the larger models. That's why you prefer to use the models with 12 OZ to 14 OZ when sparring, so that you can't hurt your sparring partner too much.


In competitions, boxing gloves with 10 OZ are often used. We recommend that you buy boxing gloves in sizes 10 OZ and additionally in 12 OZ for your daily training. For the punching bag you simply take the 10 OZ so that your punch becomes more stable and harder. And with the 12 OZ you can do partner exercises and box sparring.


If you only want to buy a pair of boxing gloves or you can't afford a second pair as a student, then rather take the boxing gloves with 12 OZ. But be careful: the boxing gloves will wear out much faster if you use them for everything. Training on the punching bag leads to much faster wear and tear. 


Buy boxing gloves - what is there to consider?


When buying boxing gloves, as with all other sporting goods, there are a few important things to consider. Ideally, you should think about what and how you want to use the gloves before you start your search. Ideally, the general processing quality should of course be as high as possible so that you can wear the gloves for a long time without wearing them out quickly. So the outer material is an important choice as it is naturally subject to direct impacts during the shots. A very high-quality material is genuine leather, but it is also not cheap. As an alternative, you could choose faux leather, for example, which also looks chic but can be a little cheaper. Of course, the inner material is also important, as this provides the padding for your hands.


The wearing comfort should also be as high as possible so that you like wearing the gloves. In addition to the inner material, the size of the gloves is important and decisive for the wearing comfort. The gloves should be tight enough not to slip. Boxing gloves that are too large can be worn with bandages without them slipping. Boxing gloves are primarily specified or categorized by their weight. Depending on the application, models with different weights are required, so that this weight is one of the most important aspects when buying boxing gloves - in the next section we will deepen this point. Other important details are the closure, i.e. whether the handguard is laced or closed with Velcro, and the segment over and around the wrist, which is intended to give it additional stability.


Key tips for buying the boxing gloves:


  • If you're brand new to martial arts, you should lean towards training gloves or sparring gloves.

  • If you train primarily on the sandbag and with claws, you should use thicker padded specimens.

  • If you're preparing for a fight, you should also go for thicker padded, heavier versions. This improves your speed and protects your sparring partner. 

  • For a fight you should use light gloves to protect your fingers adequately and to offer your opponent a minimum of padding. Lightweight, smaller gloves also increase speed and accuracy.

  • For other martial arts such as Muay Thai or kickboxing, you should make sure that the gloves are a little more flexible than classic boxing gloves.


Buying boxing gloves and determining the right size is basically not a big science. Depending on the type of training the boxing gloves are used for, the right sizes result. In terms of quality, it is best to stick to the best brands on our website, so that basically nothing can go wrong. The boxing gloves protect your hands during kickboxing with special padding. With boxing gloves, it is not the size, but rather the weight that is the decisive selection criterion.
