Choosing Your Right Boxing Glove Size and Handwraps

When picking out a pair of boxing gloves, choosing one that best fits your hand is not exactly the right criteria you should follow. Try putting on handwraps underneath the gloves. 120" handwraps are right for small hands. For medium to large hands, you will want 170" or longer.

Why bother with handwraps?
When boxing, you will need to support your wrist and thum to protect your bones and tendons from injury. It is important that you always wrap your hands before working out or boxing.

SEOUL, May 20 Kyodo

Female boxers from North and South Korea, the United States and Japan will hold world title matches in Pyongyang on June 28, the head of South Korea's boxing commission said Friday.

''A final agreement has been achieved (with the North Korean side) to hold amateur and professional boxing matches in North Korea on June 28 for the first time since the division of the nation,'' Park Sang Kwon, president of the Korea Boxing Commission, told a press conference.

North and South Korean female boxers held matches in October last year and in March this year in the Chinese city of Shenyang.

Park said the agreement on the international boxing matches was reached through talks with the (North) Korea Commission of Physical Culture and Sports Guidance.

Two North Korean world champions, one in the bantamweight division and the other in super flyweight division, will meet two challengers from the United States to defend their respective titles.

A South Korean boxier will have a bout with a Japanese boxer for the world flyweight champion's title.

Before the three events, six matches between 12 North and South Korean amateurs and two men's bouts between Chinese and North Koreans will be held.
