    Pretty good

    The product description reads: "SAME GREAT MEXICAN-STYLE QUALITY, HALF THE PRICE OF REYES" and the clue is in the phrase "MEXICAN-STYLE" as these Mexican-branded products are made in China, not Mexico. Can't complain at the price and I suppose PRO-CHIN wouldn't be a great name for a pair of boxing gloves...

    That said, they feel great, seem quite well made and offer a reassuring sound on either heavy bag or mitts. Previously using Everlast training gloves and the ProMex feel like a step up.

    I bought the 16oz and my only complaint is that they run small and are a little tight around the thenar part of the hand (the big bit of the palm below the thumb) and so I've been stuffing them with tennis balls between training sessions to try and stretch the leather a little.

    That said, a good purchase.

    Boxing Gloves Expert FAQs
    1. What type of boxing gloves should I get?

      Boxing gloves are constructed to enhance different aspects of your game. Some gloves are designed to be small and compact and place more of the glove weight toward the wrist, increasing speed and impact. Protection is minimized, but punching power is increased. If your primary focus is on punching power, this is a good choice (consider the Cleto Reyes brand). Other gloves do the exact opposite, favoring more padding over the knuckles. Boxers that have had hand injuries or who wish to be mindful of safety prefer gloves that have extra padding over the knuckles. Gloves that are fluffier also make for better defensive tools as they can cover more surface area with less movement (consider the Grant brand of gloves). Other brands range in between these two extremes and you can gauge just how much padding you need, and where you want it.

    3. What weight gloves should I get?

      The weight of gloves are measured in ounces. The higher the number the greater the shock absorbency and the heavier the weight. The standard for sparring is 14 - 20 ounces. Go on the heavier side if you want to increase your cardio or have a joint injury. For bag work 12 ounce is standard. For competition 8 or 10 ounce is the standard for pros and 10 or 12 ounce is standard for amateurs.

    5. Boxing Gloves vs. Bag Gloves

      Boxing gloves are designed to use a softer less-dense foam combination, mold or gel that increases shock absorbency for both you and your partner. Bag gloves utilize a dense foam that can withstand the day-in-day-out pounding they will receive in the gym. The closure of boxing gloves protects your partner from abrasions.The closure of bag gloves are easy-on, easy-off. Bag gloves also can contain a grip bar in the palm, which provides you an enhanced (and safer) fist.

    7. Can I hit bags with my boxing gloves?

      You can do bag work with your boxing gloves, but they will break down faster. The foam and outer in boxing gloves are designed to protect your opponent, which is great when sparring but when you use boxing gloves for bag work they will break down faster than comparable bag gloves would.
