What is Sparring?
Sparring is pretty much when you “THROW DOWN" at the gym... (LOL) Sparring is termed as a simulation fight with a classmate or some sort of live action drill to test moves to appear like a real fight.
WHY 16 OUNCE BOXING GLOVES?
Why is 16 ounce the standard for heavy boxing gloves are?
16 oz gloves have been the standard size boxing glove since the dangers of the sport has been recognized, we suppose.
Boxing gloves were first invented by an English, men's self defense instructor named Jack Broughton in 1743, his gloves were made with lamb wool or horse hair, but we don't know how heavy the boxing gloves were. (horse hair is still used today in some competition boxing gloves) Even though boxing gloves were technically invented in 1743, boxers chose to fight bare fisted until gloves became an official boxing rule under the Marquess of Queensbury rules in 1867.
