    How does the padding compare between gloves sized for Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin versus small dudes?

    Does the purported 4oz weight include the added material weight for producing a wider and larger glove?

    My suspicion is that the padding thickness is uniform and bigger gloves just weigh more.

    It should be much more. 4oz for a heavyweight is brutal, you'd be wearing probably 16oz in boxing at that weight.

    Its a tiny cushion for such powerful punchers

    No you wouldn't. 10oz normally. Ali vs. Frazier was 8oz gloves.

    16 oz gloves are for training. Boxers over 147lbs wear 10oz, lighter boxers wear 8oz.

    It depends. We have to wear 16oz for sparring to protect eachother, but yes you're right. In competition where you want to cause more damage, should wear 10 .

    Heavyweights wearing 10 or 8 Oz is brutal. In Muay Thai you are wearing 16 at that weight

    I always wondered the same thing. I would imagine the thickness of the padding is the same so bigger gloves would weigh more but not really hit less hard.

    I can’t imagine a Nganno with only 4oz of total glove weight. I could be wrong though.
