Are K-1 Gloves Smaller then Boxing Gloves?

Postby matttoma3 » Mon Mar 23, 2009 2:51 am

I've watched some K-1 matches and some boxing matches and it seems that the k-1 gloves are smaller. Am I just imagining things or what?

the same criteria is used when picking a k-1 glove as picking a boxing glove. some fighters prefer larger gloves over smaller gloves like mayweather cuz the larger gloves compliments his defensive style, while a guy like manny pacquiao likes smaller and lighter gloves to compliment his speed. it basically is decided by both fighters prior to the fight how many ounces their gloves should be, but they are basically the same size (i mean ive seen some k-1 fighers wear larger gloves than some boxers).
