I review over 60 brands and hundreds of different gloves…explaining everything from materials, padding, and stitching to shape comfort and protection. I also cover the history of different brands and how they evolved or even copied one another over the years.
Of the hundreds of “boxing glove reviews” out there, most are either a vomit of self-serving Amazon links or sponsored
reviews advertisements hyping up gimmicky features. Even the honest reviews are written by guys who’ve tried only a few brands and never worn out a single glove in their entire life. I’ll say this…
The best glove reviews should compare the best gloves!

Some of you guys know my story. I’ve been boxing for a while. Way back in 2008, I wrote a popular guide called the Boxing Gloves Buyer’s Review that circled the web a dozen times and spawned other copycat review guides that simply copied everything I said. Well…that was then, and now times have changed.
The current market for boxing/MMA/fighting gear is more confusing than ever for consumers. It used to be that you had only a few brands to choose from and it was easy to see who made the good stuff. But nowadays, you have MORE brands and MORE CHOICES (design, color, price-range) and they all claim to be the highest quality. You hear conflicting reviews and you don’t know what’s good anymore.
My verdict is this:
99% of the gloves out there are overpriced junk.
I’ve tried out MANY gloves and many versions of them. I’ve seen them new, used, completely torn apart. I can almost look at a glove and tell you how it’s going to feel and how it’s going to fall apart later. I can tell you if the cushion will harden quickly, if the glove will be hot and sweaty, if the glove will make it hard for you to make a fist, where the glove will tear, those kinds of things.
This experience comes from being in a serious boxing gym—over a dozen champions training inside at any one time. You get to try out many different gloves and you know what everyone else uses. I also get free gloves all the time because of my website. I’ve seen many brands and how they’ve changed over the years.
I hope to shine some light on the boxing glove industry (instead of confusing you with more pretty pictures and BS features). I’ll tell you how boxing gloves are made, which qualities are most important, and which ones to buy. I can even give you the background and history of many companies and how their gloves have risen or fallen in favor with boxers.
I will probably make enemies but here it goes check out this website
