I'm new to boxing and am now looking to buy my own gloves. Don't want to spend a fortune and would be looking to spend £65 max. Would need to be 16oz. What would you guys recommend? Thanks

For training I was always a big fan of Twins 10/ 12oz but they come in the full range of weights. They are a Muay Thai brand in Thailand, gloves are really good quality and affordable at around £50. Easy to pick up online, lots of eBay sellers who specialise in sending them over.

I like Madison for gloves, they're not too expensive but pretty good quality. I've had my 12oz Madisons for 12 years or so and they're still pretty decent enough condition all things considered.

I like Ringside gloves. Not sure if it will be in your price range but Google them and check them out if you are interested.

I second the twins 12oz. Mine are starting to wear, but have got a lot of mileage out of them!

Ringside gloves are good. They have better and thicker wadding which is suitable for starters. I started with them too.

I used twins 16oz gloves for many years - they are durable and great for training. No inhibitions on drilling the bag with power punches - the gloves held up and they are affordable.

I have a pair of Rival Rs2v now, which are a higher quality glove. I love them, but they are pricier.
