FAQ

  • How does Fly boxing gloves compare to winning boxing gloves?

This is a question I often get asked and the truth is they are two very different styles of glove. Winning boxing gloves have a roomier hand compartment, thicker padding, and is a very protective glove. Fly is a snug fitting glove, with an ultra smooth liner, and very soft padding. Fly gloves offer great feedback, but the padding is also protective. Both Winning and Fly are great gloves, both are durable, and can be used for bag work or sparring. Ultimately the decision of what glove to choose depends on your preference.
