Boxing gloves

Where can I get some for good prices? They're used for training only.

I was asked to get 16oz ones but I am thinking I can get away with less?

There's a fight shop on 25th and Kingsway, it's called Xtreme Fight Shop they have some good stuff. It's probably the best place locally to find gloves and gear.

Where do you box? I have no idea when you say they are used for training. Pad work? Bag work, sparring?

I would suggest hook and loop and leather (invest in leather if this is a long term deal) If you are new and just want to get your feet wet, the everlast ones for $30-50 will do. You can find them at Wal mart, sport check etc..

And so you know, 160z is what is normally used for sparring. I would recommend 160z as well, to build your punching power.

I like the Select ones myself, but they retail for about $140. I only use mine for sparring only and my 12oz for padwork, and bag gloves for the bag sometimes.

Link for the Select golves:

Vinyl cracks. Be careful.

Here are the more affordable Everlast (youll find these everywhere)

And cruise craigslist, there are always lots of ppl that give up boxing when they get hit in the nose for the first time.

Thanks for the replies.

I'm doing some beginners kickboxing training. I will be doing pad work.
