    Are you allowed full contact sparring with these gloves? Those are Fairtex's MMA fight gloves...I can't imagine your sparring partners enjoy getting hit in the face with those over a wrapped fist.

    I currently use a set of 16oz Title Boxing gloves and have had a reasonably good experience with them. I use a set of bag gloves when hitting the heavy bag, but know people who use their 16oz for all their training activities, including kickboxing.

    Every place I've been to will only let you spar with MMA gloves if you actually have experience fighting MMA. Boxing/kickboxing/muay thai places will want you to have boxing gloves.

    I don't train anywhere so I'm not sure if they are allowed in normal classes.
    none of the places I've trained at like people using MMA gloves. Wearing heavier gloves for padwork and stuff can also really help your hand speed.

    And you probably waited 6 months to get them . . . fucking Fairtex. On the other hand, they send me a Christmas card every year, so maybe they aren't that bad.

    How can I tell a regular glove from a "sparring" glove?
    I'm looking for something I can pickup this week.
    Oh and I'm looking for 16oz Boxing style sparring gloves.
    would any of these be considered sparring gloves

    Training glove = sparring glove "in general"
    For sparring, fight gloves or lightweight bag/mma gloves are the only thing you need to avoid.

    These are the glove rules under the WMC if this helps:

    Item 3: BOXING GLOVES

    3 1 Only gloves certified by World Muay Thai Council are allowed to be used in any match.

    3.2. Boxing glove requirements:

    Glove usage should correspond to the following weight divisions:


    Mini Flyweight - Junior Featherweight
    6 ounce (132 grams)


    Featherweight - Welterweight
    8 ounce (227 grams)


    Junior Middleweight and upwards
    10 ounce (284 grams)


    The weight of the leather shall not be more than half of the total glove weight, including the internal cushioning, which should always be in good condition.
    The laces are to be tied at the back of the wrist band.

    3.3. To ensure compliance with the regulations, all gloves will be inspected by a member of the match committee prior to the fight.



    Probably best to talk to your trainer, and your gym can probably get you a decent deal on gloves anyway.
