Proper Boxing Apparel
Like any other sport, in boxing proper apparel and clothing is also needed in order to feel comfortable in a fight. Some people who is just watching the game might not be very particular into the apparels that the fighters are using during the fight. Each boxer needs to have suitable boxing gears, apparels and clothing; it would also based and must be tailored fit or even based with the preference of the one who will wear it.
Let us name some of the things that a boxer would need:
1. A pair of Gloves – If you think that boxers will go into fights just wearing whatever gloves they like, well you got it wrong. A professional boxer will take brand into consideration. They would love to invest into expensive gloves rather than to a cheaper one which will not give enough quality for a fight. Next to consider is the weight, it would vary depending on which division they would be in. The heavier the weight of a glove, the more padding and the harder it will throw punches. Color of the gloves has no physical effect on the punches but it will have impact on a psychological well being of the boxer; it would also depend on the characteristic of a boxer. Say for example; Floyd Mayweather is a flashy boxer who would go for white, while a raw brawler Ricky Hatton would prefer a black glove.
2. A pair of Mitts – The mitts lies in the inner part or the inside of the boxing gloves. It would help to protect your knuckles from being hurt during the fight. Mitts should be placed properly, not too tight and not too loose.
3. Trunks – The boxer should feel comfortable in what he is wearing. In a boxing fight, the trunks contained the name of the boxer, sponsors and the flag of the country where the boxer came from. The design of the trunk must also be in accordance with an idea and should be in details; because it will represent the boxer’s disposition.
4. Boxing Shoes – Shoes of a boxer should match with the trunk. The shoes must be comfortable for the one who is fighting inside the ring, it must be durable and flexible; so that the fighter will not mind any inconveniences during the fight and just focus well on defeating the opponent.
There are still many things that needs to be considered when it comes to choosing the right apparel and gear for boxing, the above mentioned are just few. The decision will still depend on what a boxer prefer.
