Default Re: I'm a pro boxer; any questions about pro boxing let me know?

In The states 8oz gloves are used by welters and under, 10oz for anyone over welter. Is that the same in the UK? I heard fighters who turn pro say that 8oz gloves are a big difference when you first get hit with them especially facing a puncher. In the amateurs here they use 10oz gloves is it the same in the UK? Is that a big factor? In Vegas it's 10oz for lightweights and above. I found an article on the move to make 10oz gloves in Vegas, I couldn't find the link so I am posting the article.
