Default what is the best brand of boxing glove for training/sparring?

are "rival" a good brand? or "title"? i live in UK so we don't always get the brands USA get. but we get some gloves in the rival and title range. apart from them, usually we get lonsdale. but then they go onto the expensive pro gloves like cleto reyes and grant. i only want a pair of 16oz for training in. i am willing to pay the money for some good ones. i bought a pair of lonsdale ones recently which cost me 50, but i'm not happy with the feel or comfort of them, so i'd rather invest in a really good pair.

are these ones any good?

You should really try before you buy.

See what feels most comfortable.

+1 boxing gloves can be expensive so you dont want to buy ones that will suck for you. if you can try some out to see whats best.

For me personally it has to be rival, those gloves are made for boxing and fit so well

I can attest that Rival is a great brand. And many pros are starting to wear them as well.

I bought the 16 ounce long cuff lace up Rival's and their top of the line head gear. Couldn't be happier. Total cost around $350.

What do you do if the only stores around you sell Everlast stuff? Most of the reviews I read are not sunshine and rainbows for this $50 area glove.

My son has the Rival RS2V gloves in 14 oz. I like them a lot although I have only done a couple of rounds on the bag just to try them. Very good for all round training. Very good knuckle, wrist and thumb protection. Shouldn't be too harsh on your sparring partners either.

Not sure about the durability has he's only had them a month or so, but the quality seems very good for the money.

I would recommend these.

I got Rival 12oz RB1's and they may well be the best bag/training gloves I've had.The hook and loop for the wrist is great for getting on and off with your teeth which may sound strange,but is a big help if you've no one to help out.
Comfy and durable.

When it comes to sparring gloves, I like to use the gym's. I feel like using my own, is doing myself a disservice, as the gloves in the gym get used again and again, and it kind of gives your sparring partner an advantage. I also wouldn't want to break the gloves in by using them for bag work and other training, because it is dangerous. Additionally, sparring gloves are usually a pretty penny, I am sure you can utilize your funds and resources more effectively by purchasing boxing shoes, headgear, wraps, and maybe some cool boxing gear. If you have the money to blow however, I bought these Lonsdale gloves from ringside which weren't very expensive. I hardly ever use them though.
