I also read reviews of verified purchases on amazon. Considering these I compiled a list of best groin protectors for boxing. I am sure that below you will find a protector for your need. And also there is sizing information for ALL products on amazon product pages and you can choose it accordingly.

  1. Hi, thanks for taking the time to put this review together. this is really useful for newbies like us. I have a friend who is considering signing up for boxing. She’s very sporty and loves going to the gym. For someone starting boxing for the first time is she going to require the groin, protection cup and shorts? I assume this is for ladies as well.

    1. Yes females can also use any of these.
      Even though we are not supposed to get hit in groin area, sometimes we get hit. So if she will do sparring, she definitely should use it. .

  2. Love that Winning Protective Cup. I had no idea that they made so many models!

    I think what has made the biggest difference for me was when my gear was both durable and flexible. I can’t stand it when I can’t perform martial arts well when my gear is getting in the way.

    Does this hinder movement at all? Thanks.

    1. Winning’s design is just great. The sides and design allow you to move freely with it and I literally could not find anything bad online about it. There are also many people in my boxing gym who spar religiously with it.

  3. Hi Furkan:

    I found your review fascinating. Are groin injuries common?

    It looks like these allow freedom of movement. What about their weight? Is that a factor that can slow down a boxer?

    I must say that the Cps500 does indeed look “bulletproof”

    What are you seeing as far as kids entering the sport of boxing? How about girls?

    1. Even though we are not supposed to hit in this area, accidents happen so everyone should wear groin protectors during sparring. The construction of Winning is quite solid and I can easily say that you will be “safe” with it. I also had comments from people who were comfortable with it.

      Women need to wear these as well.

      Many parents are hesitant to send their kids to boxing gyms however it has a lot of benefits and they may regret their decision in future. You can check out this writing for more in-depth information about it.
