Fairly new to the forum. I'm looking for help on how gloves are rated and standardized.
I know gloves are categorized in oz, but is this the total weight of the glove? There is so many companies making gloves out there and they say 16oz, 14oz, etc. If it is the total weight of the glove then do some companies put less padding in the knuckle area and more in other areas for a harder hitting glove? Or do some companies put more padding in the knuckle area and use lighter materials in the rest of the glove to make the total ounces? Also, is the padding the same in all gloves? Do they send them anywhere to be verified?
Just been curious about this.
