Having a great pair of boxing gloves is paramount to protecting your hands and your sparring opponents.
I have used and owned virtually every brand on the planet.
What are the top training glove Brands in my opinion? I rate these gloves in this order.
2: Grant -$ 350
3: Fairtex-$ 120 plus
4: Cleto Reyes- $ 150 plus
5: Twins- $85.00 plus
6: King- $85.00 plus
Winning gloves provide the best cushion for sparring, the best knuckle protection and wrist support for bag and pad work. The have a very long shelf life. They also have a hefty price tag at $350.00.
Grants do well but pay the extra $75.00 for orthopedic foam and they will have the cushion of the winnings but the extra wrist support grants are famous for.
At 350 many pass but I can tell you Winning and Grant are the best training gloves there are. Please notice I didn’t say fight glove.. For fighting you want a punchers glove that can hurt someone. Regular grants can do that in a fight for sure though without the ortho foam. For training you want to keep those hands from getting hurt and your sparring partners happy so keep the ounces heavy. I prefer 16-18 oz for sparring.
Keep in mind that replacing 100 dollar gloves every 3-4 months adds up and winning gloves last for well over a year as do grants.
