    What is the weight of Manny's gloves when he spars? This video at 1:43 says they are 10oz.

    Also does anyone have the link of the lace up versions for training? I couldn't find it anywhere on their official site. Thanks

    I think I watched the video more closely and looked at the website comparing 10oz and 16oz gloves. The 10oz gloves has the big sticker on them saying "10oz" which looks like he only uses them for pads and bag work. The 10oz sticker isn't there when he spars. Can anyone confirm that this is right?

    Thanks, I'll take a look in that thread.

    Quick edit,

    Just realized it's a 32 page thread. If anyone has a quick link, it would be greatly appreciated.

    No problem, but yeah. he uses 10oz for the pads and heavybag. 14oz for sparring. Also, he uses custom colored gear, so if you're looking for that green or gold colors, be sure to spend around 30% extra.

    Unless they were dropping a shit ton of cash in my lap to the tune of a bunch of millions and a pay per view, i would never let manny hit me with 8oz gloves.

    C'mon, Roach will give you an extra grand if you put Manny on his ass. :icon_lol:

    Anyone know what model of Winning mitts Roach is using in the third pic?

    He uses the 10-8 oz for mitts only. For sparring you should use 16oz, don't worry about what Manny is doing.

    16 oz winnings for sparring even if you weigh less than 147? I weigh around 125.

    I see him and other pro fighters use 10oz for the bag also. Are the Winning 10oz safe for the heavy bag for long term use? Or are they constantly buying new 10oz Winnings because they can afford it?

    At 125oz I would suggest 14oz. I am 220lb and rarely go above 16oz for sparring, specially on Winnings.

    I would say that it is definitely up to the discretion of your coach. I've only fought at 119, and my coach has always asked me to wear 16oz gloves. I think most coaches would be fine with 14ozs at that weight though, but it's best to follow the wishes of your coach.

    I see. Will probably go with 16s. Hate to waste $300 on gloves just to be told I can't use them to spar.

    I just bought the 10 oz though. Anyone knows if they are safe for the bag long term wise?
