Buying boxing gloves for combat sports; how to make the right choice

It's a question we get asked a lot here at, and we've had various experts give their take on buying boxing gloves, what to look for, and what money to spend. Check out Boxing Gloves Buyer’s Guide: Spending Your Money Wisely for some information from our resident pro fighter, Jay Furness. Next up, we thought we'd throw the question to Fightstore CEO Alex Wright who has thirty years in martial arts as a student, competitor and coach. He also has a decade in the business of martial arts equipment, helping brands and running a retail store, as well as online shop. Alex knows quality when he sees it and has had to dispense advice on buying boxing gloves daily for many years. Instead of trying to flog a certain product, he's keen to stress that each individual has different needs when it comes to their own anatomy. As well as suggestions on picking the right size, padding and support for you needs, Alex suggests some options for your sport and budget. Featured in the video are the: Fairtex BGV-9 RRP £94.99
