I'm looking for a pair of Muay Thai training gloves, and am interested in why the different weights. Since I would be mainly using a bag and focus mits, with little to no sparring, would 16 ounce be optimal? I only wiegh 170, so maybe 14?

Basically, why the different weight gloves--what are each weight best used for?

Stupid question, but can't find out any information anywhere else.

Thank in advance.
 
16oz gloves are the best for hard sparring. For bag work only the lesser weight (10 and 12oz) gloves are good. If your a smaller guy or not a very heavy hitter then the lower weight gloves are for you. The 14oz gloves are a good all around weight.

why are only the lesser weight gloves good?
 
There not. get different glove for bag work and sparing. your sparing partners will like you a lot more. I have 18oz bag glove and 14oz sparing gloves. both title. the pro bag gloves and whatever sparing gloves they have. they hold up pretty good.

DO WORK.
