    for your size those are a good match if you want to go the safer route just get bigger gloves

    Why didn't you go with 16 oz? That's pretty standard for sparring and I've even seen people go up to 18 oz. for sparring.

    Yeah, I agree with mvisit. I'd typically recommend the 16s too.

    Since you already got the 14oz, but are dropping down to 145, I guess those will be fine for you though.
