Generally, there are two types of gloves that boxers and fitness boxers use-boxing gloves and bag gloves.
Bag gloves may be used to train on heavy bags and speed bags. Bag gloves tend to have less padding than boxing gloves and are usually less expensive. Bag gloves are designed to withstand the repeated pounding on heavy bags and speed bags and are usually constructed of top-grain leather. They may also be made of cowhide, horsehide or synthetic materials (horsehide tends to be more durable, but may be heavier). Padded palm grips and metal palm grips provide better fit and comfort.
Bag gloves are available in youth sizes.
