The link did not work but I have 4oz bag gloves and they work great, Iíve never hit any one in the head with them though. Iím sure if I did hit some one in the head with them I would be fine, as far as the other person not getting hurtÖÖ If you want to punch some one in the head with out hurting them that bad, you might want to try 16oz. Does that help you at all?

Like I said I use 4oz gloves on my bag and those work great, so those you posted would definitely work on a bag. I would also say that 12oz would be enough to do some sparring as well.

Yeah, they are sparring gloves, so they should work fine. 10s hurt when you get hit with them, but it's supposed to hurt: IT'S SPARRING!

They're heavier, so you're trading padding for weight, and that's not much of a trade off. Just keep that in mind.

It all depends on who hits you.

Actually, 12oz gloves are fine, and it's not really the weight of the gloves, but the intensity of the sparring session that will determine the level of contact. Must people don't spar at a balls-to-the-wall level, especially when they're set to compete in a bought. It doesn't make sense to risk getting injured during sparring if you have a paid fight to look forward to. In that aspect most go 50% to 70% intensity while sparring. Just enough to keep sharp and honest while still allowing the development of skill.

Speaking from experience, yes it will still hurt. It will definitely sting if you get popped sharply in the mouth, nose or chin. No, headgear doesn't help that much either. Headgear is more there to help prevent cuts, but it won't stop you from getting your lips or nose busted open. The only difference is that the force gets dispersed over a wider area when wearing headgear. Instead of a sharp crack, it feels like someone is slapping you in the skull with a 20lb sack of gel. It doesn't hurt per se, but your sense of balance gets real loopy; like the floor won't stop moving under you.

But 12oz should be more than fine to work some stand-up. Just make sure you have a dependable and reasonable sparring partner that won't try to flex his manhood or spaz out on you. If that's the case, it won't matter how big the gloves are.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
