    Hello,

    I'm going to start boxing next week, so I'm going to need some new gloves for sparring.

    I'm 152 5'7, from what I've read I need 14oz velcro gloves, but there are so many brands and types of gloves I don't know where to start.

    Any recommendations for 20-50 US gloves?

    Thanks!

    +1 on this. They only have 12oz and 16oz so I would go for 16. They are very compact and full leather. These gloves are workhorse gloves that won't die on you!!!!

    No fight gear is much better than ending Elwin that price range imo. You can upgrade later if you stick to it.

    I have a pair of twins and a pair of fairtex in 14oz. They are both awesome and not super expensive.

    You could just bite the bullet and get some clerk Reyes 14s.

    He said boxing..not muy thai..outside of custom gloves their are Everlast MX, Fighting sports Tri Tech, Ringside IMF, Booster Fight Gear training gloves (thai glove with western boxing qualities), Rival RB11, and various ring to cage stand up gloves..and it also depends on what you need this glove for. sparring or bag and pad work.

    Everlast MX are too expensive for his budget and are untested. If you have smaller hands the ringside IMF are a good choice based on their reviews here. I think the fighting tri-tech may be out of his price range, if not good glove.

    Kofightgear is the best glove in your range...2oz wont matter for the quality youre gonna get. 16oz are reccomended for beginners sparring anyways.
