How to pick the right size boxing gloves

Boxing gloves are without a doubt the most important piece of equipment in the sport of boxing. It is vital to choose the right boxing glove for you before beginning your boxing session. Generally, boxing gloves come in three s (small, medium, and large). When choosing the glove, you need to choose based on the of your hands, rather than on your body weight. In addition, you should buy gloves that feel a little tight because they tend to stretch. After a short time using them, they will stretch and will fit you perfectly. Worst thing you can do is buy loose gloves, as they will increase the risk of injuring your hand and wrist because the glove moves out of place. Another thing you should do is before buying a new glove, make sure you have your wrist wraps on and only then try on the new gloves. Last thing you should do is buy the heaviest glove possible because they will offer your wrist with more protection than lighter gloves.
