The history of boxing gloves, how to choose a boxing glove that suits you?

In fact, boxing has been around since the beginning of mankind, but at this time boxing was a means for humans to protect their lives in order to survive. The rudiments of boxing already existed in ancient times. Scientists in ancient Egypt found that boxing As early as the 40th century BC, there was a way of fighting by wrapping leather bandages on the hands, and the murals excavated by scientists in Baghdad also painted scenes of boxing fights. Later, boxing spread from ancient Egypt to ancient Greece, and modern boxing, which originated in the 18th century, was born as a competition event.

For a long time in the history of boxing, boxing gloves were absent. Even in the early years of modern boxing in England in the 18th century, boxers did not wear gloves. It was not until 1847 that Broughton, the father of modern boxing, decided to reduce the number of matches. Injuries in the boxing industry led to the invention of modern boxing gloves. It became the norm for boxers to wear gloves to participate in competitions. With the development of professional boxing for more than a hundred years, boxing gloves have also undergone great changes, and there are many types.

Boxing gloves are essential for the practice of all striking sports, such as Boxing, Muay Thai or MMA. In fact, although boxing gloves can cushion the collision between bones and protect fragile parts such as eyes and nose, their more important role is Protect your hands, because human finger bones and wrists are much more fragile than the skull, so if you don’t wear gloves, your hands are more likely to be injured.

Boxing gloves are available in sizes ranging from 8 ounces to 20 ounces by weight and are made of leather on the outside and soft padding on the inside. Secondly, you need to base your punches on your weight. Boxing punches are not just about the strength of your arms, but the rotational force of your waist.

If you want a particularly fierce confrontation, it is recommended to use red. Black is generally used defensively, and can also create a feeling of depression for the opponent.
