Okay, i was wondering if any1 could help me. i started boxing about 2 months ago. im 20 and about 5"4 - 5"5 and weigh about 8 st 9 pounds or about 54 kilos. iv been hitting the heavy bag with sum really crapy gloves like so -

Sugar Ray's Boxing Store :: Gloves ( Sparring & Bag Gloves) :: Boxing Bag Gloves & Mitts :: Boxing Bag Mitts :: Ampro Pu Bag Mitt. : boxing equipment,Everlast, boxing gear, boxing store, boxing shop, boxing gloves, boxing headguards, boxing boot

and iv sprained my wrists a few times and bruised my hands a lil bit. i hit pretty hard for my size. so i know that u can get gloves in small, medium and large and different weights like 10,12,14 oz. so im looking for the right size and weight gloves to hit the heavy bag and i dont mind spending up to 60 quid or wateva just want a decent pair. iv got small hands so i guess i need a small size but i dont know what weight gloves to get. any help would be really appreciated.

How much you willing to spend? Those gloves are crap though. I can see how you hurt your hands and wrist. For heavybag training, most use 12-16 oz gloves. For your size though, I recommend 12 or 14's. Im not quite sure what kind of gloves are avaiable to you in the uk though.

The best bag gloves I've ever used are Title Gel Bag Gloves. 59.99 16 oz from titleboxing.com. I guarentee you will never have sore knuckles again and the wrist protection is great as well.

i don't know what 150 pounds are in kilos but if you weigh more than that then get 16 oz. gloves if you weigh under that get 14 oz. gloves. Don't buy 12 oz thats for 11 year olds or hitting certain bags with. And by the way I've never seen such horrible gloves in my life. Better off getting a plastic bag and putting your hands in them then that.

I recommend the 14 oz. Thats the gloves he's gonna be fighting with when he goes in the ring in competitions. Uuuuh...16 oz if you're gonna train with them. 14 oz. for fighting or lighter bags like cobra bag or double end.

Buy 14 oz cause i'm in your weight class and i have 14 oz. Stay away from cheap gloves is the best i can say all i have is competition gloves and regular everlast gloves you find in a models which i don't recommend.

14 oz is a good size for you. Only prob is that ringside, grant, cleto and other top brands tend to only make 12oz bag gloves, but as an upside give you an option to select small or large for smaller and larger hand pockets. Everlast and Title have better glove weight variation, so if your gonna get 14's you'll prob find a bigger selection with those two brands.

ok well after doin a lil more research i came across these gloves which sound good.

Campeón Super Bag Gloves - Campeón - Gloves - Grant Boxing

ok the problem is that they are only 12 oz gloves, andi was just wondering will they provide me with enuff protection for my hands and wrist for the heavy bag taken into consideration im only a lil dude but punch quite hard,
and also will the 14 oz gloves be to big and cumbersom for me, coz i dunt wana walk into my gym lookin like a lil wally with humungous hands like haha, cheers guys.
so really what im askin is are the 14oz to big and heavy for me considerin my small stature and will the 12oz gloves provide me with enuff protection for whakin the heavy bag?

oh last thing are thos gloves any good for me??? (open to any other suggestions for gloves)

These are my second favorite bag gloves next to the title gels, they are great. Great knuckle protection for yourself, medium should be a perfect size for you. They are 12 oz but they feel even lighter because of the balance of them. Great quality, great feel and great control. You will love them.

14oz will not look like big gloves you're talking about 18oz to look like that. 14oz will provide protection plus its for training i recommend 14oz

I also love the grant campeon super bag gloves, prob one of the best pairs of bag gloves I've ever had. Since their out of stock, consider paying the extra 50 or so for the professional grant super bag gloves. I've been meaning to get me a pair of those. They look like their just as good as the super bag gloves yet even better quality and longer lasting. Don't worry about 14oz looking to big on you, it really won't be noticable, the only thing that will notice them is your shoulders:). Besides that, you shouldn't worry to much about deciding whether your gonna get 12's or 14's for bag gloves, if you wanna get the 12's, go for it especially since your just starting and when you get to a further point in your training get 14's which will increase your speed and strength. Just make sure when you get into sparring, your training gloves need to be 14oz or larger.
