Default Re: When to wear 16 oz gloves

The standard is supposed to be to spar with them, and train with 12 or 14, but in my experience people just spar with whatever they're bringing to the gym with them. I think it may have put me at a bit of a speed and power disadvantage.

Also, an aside, having been bullied in the ring and simply gone along, I'm going to purchase 14oz Reyes gloves for all purposes and simply make sure anyone pays for any abuse from a gap in experience or size/weight that they choose to exploit.
