Sherdoggers, My brother's birthday is approaching, and he just started boxing. I would like to get him gloves and a bag to train with, but need some advice. I've skimmed the information from similar topics, but would like to ask again just to get some fresh answers. Gloves - do I need to get something specifically designed for one task, e.g. bag work? Or can i get him something that would work for sparring and bag work? I would prefer something he can use for everything, but don't know if that's possible. I'd like to spend up to $75, and something that I can get within two weeks of ordering. Also how heavy should they be (e.g. 12 oz 16 oz? What about the material? He's about 205 lbs if that helps. Bag - What are some good brands, weights, and materials (e.g. canvas, leather, etc.)? Anything I should avoid? ANY other information you would have is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
