Boxing Gloves Sizing
Boxing Glove Sizing
SMAI boxing gloves, unless specified as ‘Kids’, are all intended for adult use. Unless you have an exceptionally large hand circumference (greater than 9.5”) you should be able to comfortably insert your hand with wrap into any SMAI boxing gloves.
The Gloves are labelled as 8oz, 10oz, 12oz, 14oz,16oz which is a reference to the actual weight of the boxing glove. So a heavier weight will result in a larger glove size (slightly). Conversion of the ounces to grams is as follows:
8oz – 226.8grams
10oz – 283.5grams
12oz – 340.2grams
14oz – 396.9grams
16oz – 453.6grams
How to choose the right boxing glove?
Generally we recommend heavier gloves for sparring and general training (16oz), a medium weight for bag training, drilling and pad work (12oz), and a lighter weight for competitions (10oz& 8oz).
If you’re still unsure, check with your trainer as they may recommend something different to suit your training program.
