  1. Alejandro Amezcua

    WOW, really impressed always. The fit, support, looks, just everything always perfect. thank you PUNCH for making equipment so good.

    Pros: Fit, support, looks

    Cons: haven't found any

    Best user for: Training

  2. Christopher

    I own 8 different pairs of gloves and these are by far my favourite, I highly recommend these, I bought the red colour a few months ago in 12oz for training. The highlight for me is the comfort, as soon as you slide them on you can feel the quality in the fit and padding. I’ve been smashing these almost daily and they still feel good as new.

    Pros: °comfortable °durable °great protective features

    Cons: Honestly can't think of any.

    Best user for: Good all rounder glove, go for 16oz If you only want to own one pair of gloves and use for everything or sparring, go for the 12oz if you want a pair just for pads and drills.

  3. Shaun

    Nice gloves. The fit is pretty snug, so you won’t need thick wraps or knuckle protectors. Good fit on the wrist also. Not super padded or soft so you way want to take it easy if you’re sparring with these otherwise your sparing partner will get knocked around a bit. Very good for bag work and pad work with a nice clean snap when making contact,

    Pros: Snug fit. Good hand protection. great for pad work and bag work.

    Cons: Not the softest leather for sparring. If you have thick/big hands these might be a bit tight.

    Best user for: pad work and bag work.

  4. Kristen

    Pros: Fantastic quality and workmanship

    Cons: I don’t want to use them for everyday use because they’re limited edition lol

    Best user for: General purpose gloves

  7. Luke

    Quality workmanship and good fit. Good value.

    Pros: Snug fit over entire hand and wrist. Easy to form a fist. Not as bulky as some 16OZ gloves from other brands.

    Cons: Not as stiff at the wrist as I was expecting.

    Best user for: All round training, but particularly Muay Thai sparring.

  8. amanda smith

    Great comfortable gloves for everyday training….my first set of 16oz gloves and I use them 5 days a week. They fit great, well padded. Use these gloves for bag workout and I find them comfortable and sturdy.

    Pros: Comfortable, great padding, solid gloves, well fitting, durable.

  9. kesfahani

    16oz are awesome! Thick padding and a comfortable inner lining they feel like real 16oz gloves not thin and flimsy like a lot of 16s you’ll come across. Highly recommend this gloves and Punch in general for any fight gear and apparel.

  10. Jan

    This was only my second purchase of gloves, my usual were the Trophy Getters 10 ounce. I loved the look and after watching the video clip the design of these gloves. Unfortunately for me they were not a good fit, I ended up with a blister on my middle knuckle on one hand and they just weren’t snug, it felt like there was not enough padding in that particular spot where I got the blister? I am not sure if the fact they were 12 ounces made a difference? But it’s not the gloves fault, just one of those things it didn’t match up with my hands. It’s a shame as I really liked them. If there were a 10 ounce I would have surely tried them as well. But all is well I was able to pass them on so they will get used.
    I would have loved to given a 5 star rating and say how fabulous they are as the other reviews, but it just wasn’t my experience. 😖

    Pros: I loved the look of them.

    Cons: Just for me it wasn’t a good fit. Not to say it wouldn’t be for others.

    Best user for: I used them for pad work with my trainer and only used them 2 times. When I started on the 3rd session I swapped back to my Trophy Getters.

  11. James Matthews

    16Oz glove, solid, good protection. Excellent for training in Muay Thai.

  12. Damian Chong

    Absolute delight to use. Solid protection and feedback and good quality.

    Pros: Protection, feedback, quality of glove

    Cons: Design might be slightly flashy for some people, palm padding might take some getting used to if you're using these for traditional boxing.

    Best user for: Muay Thai, padwork and sparring

  13. Sara

    Nice sparring gloved comfortable good quality and affordable

    Pros: Does the job looks like the top king ones for a fraction of the price thank you

    Cons: Nill issues

    Best user for: Used for Muay Thai training and sparring

  14. David Vitali

    For 16oz. Solid in every way. Love them.

    Pros: Similar pitch and design to Venum’s flagship Hammer Pro h/e $140 vs $270 (Punch = AUD$130 better value), much better padding knuckle to fingertip esp, better interior feel, more supple and stands on its own as a superior glove to almost everything in its class. Impressive..

    Cons: Nil major issues for me in 16oz.

    Best user for: In 16oz: Sparring/fighting - kickboxing/Muay Thai definitely, possibly Western boxing.

  15. Ash Sparkes

    Great open palm glove for thai,
    If you enjoy clinching alot,
    These gloves provide great feedback when striking & grip when trying to work hard in a clinch with your partner!

    Pros: Crisp padding, nice open handfit to comfortably grab kicks & clinching!

    Best user for: Muay Thai training.
