    Hi all,
    I am new to this forum and this industry so please be patient.

    My younger cousin has decided to take up boxing and has not told any of his family. He's approached me to help him on his new venture.
    I know nothing about boxing apart from the usual general stuff.

    Anyway I want to buy him a pair of gloves and I have been looking online and the prices vary quite a bit. I do not know what to get and what size.
    I've seen some that look identical but the prices different and the oz is different. What oz would he need?

    Would you recommend getting training gloves, or just a pair of normal gloves, is there a difference?

    The ones i've seen on eBay are made by Voco Sports, I've never heard of them actually I haven't heard of any of them apart from Everlast? Does having a branded pair mean they are better or last longer?

    The ones I have seen are: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VOCO-Cyclone-Boxing-Gloves-Alpha-Series-Black-Yellow-Grappling-MMA-Muay-Thai-/111848388130?var=&hash=item1a0aaef622:m:mIcc-MRb66RkUOmhLGyao1A

    Do you think they are worth it? Can someone suggest anything better?

    I realise it's a present you're buying so your budget will be limited,but weight wise I'd think about getting him a pair of 12-14 Oz gloves because what people don't realise is how heavy gloves feel,especially when starting out.
    I wouldn't rush to recommend a brand when you have a low budget but you're doing him a big favour in the long run if you get him a pair with some weight on them.Even 8's or 10's feel like 20kg Dumbbells when fatigue is setting in.
    Good luck to both of you anyway.
