Where to buy small-size 16oz sparring gloves?

I'm looking for sparring gloves to buy online or in Sydney, Australia. My gym says 16oz is required for males.

I understand that the Oz rating describes the padding and protection and in theory 16oz gloves could come in small, medium and large sizes, but most suppliers seem to offer one size at one weight.

I am a small person with small hands (about 8cm or 3.1" across the knuckles) and have hurt my wrists before using gloves that were much larger than my hands.

How do other people cope with this? Is it ok to get three or four wraps and just keep wrapping the hands until the gloves fit?

Does anyone know of a manufacturer of really small 16oz gloves?

If there's a previous thread on this please direct me to it, but I can't see one.

Hi Sydnee. I can see the predicament you are in. I wonder if a suitable solution might be going with a 14oz with extra padded gel handwraps. This would equate to roughly 16oz padding but will fit a lot better for you. You can browse 14 here -, and here are some gell wraps - bx-ac-17.

You might have to check with your gym first though.
