Question by newyorkfightnights: What are the best amateur boxing gloves i can use for a tough man boxing event?
Ok, so i am interested in putting together a tough man boxing event. I want to take as many safety measures as i can. I was wondering what amateur gloves are best for safety? I know that they have gloves out there that reduce shock. I just don’t know which ones. Can i get some help? Also what headgear is best to use for safety?

Thanks for the help

If it’s for a Toughman… 16 oz, no less. And since the fighters probably aren’t trained, the cut of the glove probably doesn’t matter.

Ringside.com usually has live representatives on their website that you can check with and ask their opinions on different gloves. Ringside.com sells Ringside, obviously, but also Grant and Reyes, I believe, as well as Adidas Amateur gloves.

Let us know which ones you pick.

Ringside has a large selection of fight gloves, from MMA, sparring, boxing, any martial arts type of gloves. They also come in many different weights. Usually in tough man contests the fighters wear 14 or 16 ounce gloves [most states that allowed sanctioned tough men contests require this], seldom 8 and 10 ounce gloves are worn, but this is for matches not sanctioned by the state. Everlast also makes a decent glove, check the padding on the knuckle area, remember to wrap your hands, this will protect your knuckles. I prefer Everlast head gear, with no sissy bar. Real men don’t use sissy bar head gear. I wish we had a tough man contest near me, it would be fun.
