If you're new to boxing and train once a week, opt for boxing gloves with good palm ventilation. Look for a breathable material such as mesh or a design with micro perforations.
If you're an advanced boxer and train two or three times a week in a club or on a punch bag, choose a pair of gloves with a thick outer such as leather or synthetic leather. Over time, your gloves will begin to wear at the impact zones, so it is key to find a durable glove that can withstand lots of action.

Top tip: Use boxing hand wraps (or mitts) to absorb perspiration and extend the lifespan of your gloves.
