I recently ordered some gloves from combatsports.com. These are more padded than normal MMA gloves, for the purpose of sparring. Supposedly, they have the same force-dispersing ability of 16 oz boxing gloves. Does anyone know if that is, in fact true?
to me it's all about the thickness of the padding if the thickness is only 1.5" there is no way it will protect your training parnter as well as a pair of boxing gloves that has a thick 2" padding and is 2-3" wider hen a mma glove. just my opinion
3" inches wider not thick but there are boxing gloves that are 3inch thick over the knuckles. hell the only boxing gloves that we sell that have less then 2inches of padding over the knuckles are our kids gloves or old school bag gloves.
regardless i'm glad the gloves are working out for you
