    I'm about the same specs 6'1 and 160lbs. My wrists are relatively small so I wanted a glove w/ good wrist support. I own the Hayabusa 16oz gloves. They are insanely nice. They have dual directional velcro which gives great support for my wrists. Bit pricey at $~90 but well worth it.

    wraps 180 inch always
    Gloves thats a whole different story whats your price rance and your probably just doing bag/ pad work, but your going to need two pairs of gloves once you start sparring.
    I would get bag gloves first.

    Two questions before I can recommend gloves... are you using them for sparring or pads/bag work? What is your budget?

    And get 180" wraps

    "tiger.shark" is right. The answer to those two questions (intended use and budget) will really help people point you toward specific quality gear. As for the amount of information you have already, I would say:

    * 180" Mexican style handwraps,
    * 12-14oz. superbag gloves or traditional bag gloves in your handsize,
    * 16oz. sparring gloves (which you may not need immediately, unless you are going to start sparring soon).

    and answer this question as well:

    "are you using them for sparring or pads/bag work?"

    That's what I was waiting for too. Without that information and with a $100.00 budget, for now I would say:

    * 12-14oz. Title Pro Super Bag Gloves for bag work at $44.99, and
    * 16oz. KO Fightgear Sparring Gloves for sparring at $38.95, and
    * 2 pairs of 180" Mexican style handwraps.

    Mission accomplished!
