    What size gloves (oz) do you guys use for what?

    i would use 12-16 on heavy bag
    12 for pads
    16 for sparring
    12 for double end bag (rarley 4)

    I read that Duane makes tj use 16s for everything including drilling combos.
    (Interesting fact Blaydes uses 18s for sparring)

    After that i have started using 16s for everything (maybe 12 here and there for pads)

    Just curious what you guys think on this topic. Pros cons?

    14 Oz are best all-round IMO. Not too heavy, and still good conditioner.

    I honestly don't care, I just smack things. I'm not going to change gloves based on what I'm doing.



    Edit: Except hard sparring of course, I'm not going to cut someone's face off out of laziness.

    Coach: here are the heavy bags
    J: i just bang
    Coach: ummm okay... here are where we keep our pads
    J: i just bang

    Doesn't matter for me, only separation is sparring and "bag" gloves. Never got the whole bigger guys wear smaller gloves deal.

    16 for hard sparring 12 oz for mitts and bag why use 16 for bags n mitts? i think u should feel your knuckles hitting the bag it conditions your hands for hitting things it feels weird hitting a bag and not feeling any impact

    FWIW, 16s were never intended for bag use. There's things called "bag gloves" that are for bags.
