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.

Boxing: JANE'S NO COUCH POTATO
Sunday Mirror, Jul 17, 2005 by DERICK ALLSOP
JANE COUCH aims to capitalise on Britain's boxing
boom to boost women's standing in the sport.
The country's best known female boxer takes on one
of her biggest ever challenges when she fights Jessica
Razocky for the WBC lightweight title in California
Couch admits she is up against it but believes Ricky
Hatton's thrilling victory against Kostya Tszyu
last month will inspire her. She said: "Ricky's
win was the best thing that could have happened
for British boxing and I'd like to think I could
do the same for women's boxing.
"We are both ordinary, straight talking Northerners
and I fight with the same determination as Ricky.
He was the underdog against Tszyu and I'm the underdog,
so hopefully I will get the same result."
Couch, who hails from Fleetwood but trains with
an all-male stable in Bristol, wants women's boxing
to be part of ITV's new coverage.
She said: "It's great that boxing is back on
ITV. I hope we can get them to put women's boxing
on as well."
