Re: What's the Difference With These Types of Headgear?
It's not an amateur bout. Mine's not at least. It's a 2-day event with different age groups competing, younger guys on the 1st day and older guys on the 2nd. I guess the level I'll be competing at is white collar, hobby boxers in their late 20s. My coach told me to either use the headgear I have or to buy the face bar style. I recently bought boxing shoes and training gloves though, so I don't know if I wanna spend $100+ on new headgear. Not unless it'll offer significantly more protection, but since my nose got busted up wearing the face bar style, I'm not sure that it will. I've also gotten a black eye before wearing the face bar style.
