Boxing Glove Guide

Do boxing glove colors make a difference?

The answer is sometimes yes and sometimes no.

If you are using the gloves for training then you can use any color you choose. It is common these days to see gloves in pink, white, black, red, yellow and other color patterns.

In amateur boxing glove color is important because red and blue are used to denote different corners. The different colors helps the judges in scoring the competition. For amateur boxing you will usually see gloves that are either red or blue and have a white knuckle area. The contrast between the white knuckle area helps the judges determine what punches are landing/scoring.

In professional boxing the color of the gloves is usually chosen or approved by the promoter of the fight.
