lighter gloves = faster hands and less protection for both you and your training partner

heavier gloves = more protection for both you and your training partner, builds better speed and helps condition you to keep your hands up. not to mention they are bigger to block incoming shots.

when sparring or shaddow boxing i prefer 16 oz gloves, but for bag/pad work i'll use 10 oz gloves. spar for 3 rounds with 16 oz'rs and then put on some 10 oz'rs and hit the focus mitts - instant speed! you'll never believe that a measly 6 ounces could make such a difference.

if you get used or get comfortable with 16oz... then doing the same thing with 10 or 12 isn't gonna be the same thing anymore... ur hands will fly faster and longer

i use 12oz for all my bag and mitt work, but when it comes to sparring i always use 16oz. your sparring partner will thank you for it, after all your sparring not trying to kill your partner but push him to be better while he pushes you to be better.

Wearing heavier gloves builds more speed. Train with a 16oz glove and them a few monthes later when you put a 10 or 12oz glove on. You'll clearly notice the difference in speed. then when you get mma gloves on, shit you'll be Floyd Mayweather on speed.

the Fairtex I go to requires 16oz gloves for sparring just to make sure no one gets seriously hurt.
i train with 16oz gloves because it helps work out your arms faster.

Same here, My gym required us to have only 16oz gloves when doing muay thai. So you might have no choice.
