i spar with 16 oz.
id rather that because not only will i get the benefits from better muscular endurance but its also nice to have two big pillows in front of my face to protect me.

you fight with 10 oz so the closer the weight of the gloves the more sport specific your training/sparring will be, but you are more likely to get cut if the person your sparrin wears light gloves
