This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Even if you consider yourself more of a lover than a fighter, boxing can be a great way to stay fit, provided you protect those knuckles from too much punishment. Our list of gloves features heavier choices for training and bag work as well as lighter options for MMA enthusiasts who engage in regular sparring. There are also a few small enough for kids, if you're raising the next George Foreman. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

1. Hayabusa T3

2. Venum Elite

3. Fairtex BGV14

Editor's Notes

October 24, 2018:

Added multiple options for training and heavy bag use that are high-quality without being cost-prohibitive. Professionals will benefit from the inclusion of the Hayabusa T3 and Venum Elite, while those without prior training will find several entry-level choices. Though there are many pairs that are ideal for Muay Thai and kickboxing, gloves that are designed specifically for MMA and not boxing are omitted from the list so that all options will work for those using boxing as part of their fitness plan.

4. Venum Impact

5. Trideer Pro Grade

6. Everlast PowerLock

7. Anthem Athletics STORMBRINGER

8. Everlast Women's Pro Style

9. Cleto Reyes Hook & Loop

10. Everlast Pro Style
