    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Quick question

    Guys, alot of places today train with 16 oz gloves. Maybe its just me, but I swear they hurt more, and also are more dangerous due to more pressure on the brain. Maybe its my lack of headgear which makes me see this differently though.

    There is no question here, just statements.

    I just re-read what I wrote, and yes it doesn't make sense. I blame this on being awake for 24 hours. Basically, why are 16oz gloves used?

    Theoretically, the extra padding makes for more "cushioned" blows. Its easier for you to defend against them as well, because they are so large they are easier to cover up from. But the extra weight of the glove means extra weight behind the punch. Its a two-edged sword.

    We break it down by a fighters weight in our gym. Anyone up to about the 130-ish range can use 12oz gloves in training. Above that up to heavyweight (190+) should use 14oz. Above 190 must use 16oz.

    Hmm, thats interesting, We're about 130-150, (I forget, I hate working in pounds, we're about 68kg though) and we use either 10 oz, or 16 oz.
    About the brain pressure thing i said. Surely by having more mass, and a greater surface area, the pressure is transmitted over a greater area, so although it would be less concentrated force, surely its still greater pressure and would still juggle the brain about?

    Nah man. Same force, smaller area = more damage. Same force, larger area = less damage.

    The drain bramage comes in when people can take 12 rounds of punishment and keep standing.

    Ah yes, but I meant the extra few ounzes would have increased the force. But nevermind.
