Boxing gloves are a type of MMA equipment that come in a range of sizes. Ladies boxing gloves start at 10oz go up to 12oz or even 14oz depending on how strong you are. Men's boxing gloves start where the ladies boxing gloves end at 14oz and become as heavy as 18 oz.

When buying boxing gloves you should try to make sure you do not buy a pair that is too light; men should not buy 12oz boxing gloves for example. This is because if you buy boxing gloves that are too light not only do you risk hurting your sparring partner, but you will not be getting a proper work out. Cardiovascular exercise is important for MMA fighters and having a heavy pair of boxing will consequently help you become the ultimate fighter you can be.

When buying boxing gloves it is essential you use a specialist supplier otherwise your boxing gloves may not have enough padding around the hand and the Velcro may come undone and hurt your sparring partner.

Unlike MMA gloves, which do not vary much, boxing gloves are a type of mixed martial arts equipment that varies significantly in the style and colours available. This is something you might want to consider when buying boxing gloves. Brands such as Fairtex and Twins will offer you a large choice of boxing gloves and reputable stores will usually stock a wide variety of these manufacturers’ styles.

MMA gloves are a type of mixed martial arts equipment that never ranges in size; they are always 4oz. If someone tries to sell you another size of MMA sparring gloves avoid them, they will not be a reputable supplier of MMA clothing and fight wear.


After you have bought your boxing gloves and sparring gloves you may have decided to consider what you will wear on the mat when you are sparring. A lot of fighters prefer to wear specialist fight wear or mixed martial arts equipment to avoid injury. These can be things like Thai pads which will protect your legs when you are practising leg kicks with an opponent. This type of mixed martial arts equipment becomes more useful as you advance in the sport.

Although Thai pads were originally devised for Muai Thai which uses a lot of kicking, they are also a useful article of mixed martial arts equipment because mixed martial arts uses kicks too as you will know either as a fighter or as a fan of the ultimate fighting championship.

Most fighters wear fight shorts when fighting. This is because fight shorts are a type of MMA clothing which do not restrict movement on the mat. This is important when sparring. Another important factor when sparring is fight shorts are harder to grab onto than a GI which is why this type of MMA clothing is preferred when sparring. If traditional GI clothing was to be worn it would be a lot easier for an opponent to hold onto your clothing making it an unfair fight.
