    I use Title MMA gloves for my competition gloves. I do not recomend them for bag work though as they are pretty rough on the hands. But they offer up a free range of movement and good wrist support and they have a pretty aggressive profile so a good glancing hit has a better than average chance of opening up a cut.
    Sounds great, thanks. Are the CS MMA sparring gloves any good for bag work, or should I just drop some cash on a pair of 16oz Everlasts too?

    You can use them on a bag but I don't. They are kind of designed to save your sparring partner a black eye not for bag work. I just wrap up good for light bag work or wear a pair of gel shock knuckle protectors for heavier work.

    *celebrates* Since my birthday is coming up at the end of this month I put a pair of those Level 4 MMA gloves on my list and I just found out yesterday that they've been ordered. Woohoo! I'll be getting them at the end of this month.

    I'm looking for a decent pair of (boxing) sparring gloves in the $60 dollar range.

    I want something with as much padding as possible as I'm not interested in hurting my sparring partner.

    There seems to be much more variety at that price range in Muay Thai gloves than in boxing gloves.

    My question is: what's the difference between Muay Thai gloves and boxing gloves?

    Another question is: for those who box, what wieght gloves do you spar with?

    As far as I can tell the only relatively consistant difference is that MT gloves have a little extra pad that goes on the outside edge of your palm under your pinky. It is for catching kicks. You can see it in Wolf's picture if you look closely.

    I use 16oz gloves for kickboxing sparring.

    Just ordered a pair of CSI Thai style 14 oz trainers like Wolf's.

    Can't wait to try them out.

    You mean these (or something like these)?

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
