Venum is an MMA company and offers a wide range of martial arts equipment and gears including rash guards, boxing shorts, and MMA gloves.
The company’s products, which are made in Thailand, are significantly better than the products, which are made in Pakistan and hands down Venum Sharp is one of the top boxing gloves of the company and definitely deserves more attention and below I provided a lot of details why this pair deserves it.

Leather and Construction: Nappa leather is softer than the many other leather types and it looks “nicer”. Another interesting fact is that this leather can withstand the lighter deformations better. When I consider everything about this leather, it can last around 3 years. Guys, this is the signature material of Venum and the leather provides heat exchange between outside and inside. It also repels water (moisture, sweat) quite well. It has more seams than usual and these gloves look a bit smaller than it should. The seams improve the sturdiness and thanks to more seams, the gloves look awesome.
Training Performance: So this is all around training pair and it is suitable for all boxing training types. So you can punch the heavy bag, spar in the boxing ring with it… The padding style is same as other Venum Gloves like Venum Elite which is considered as quite good by literally a myriad of people and gets incredible ratings.
Safety (B+): This glove has attached thumb and as you may know it is necessary for sparring so you will not hurt the eye of your partner and the leather is soft. Nappa also does not irritate your partner’s skin. These make it suitable for sparring sessions. The wrist closure is not really tight however it is still decent and covers your wrists quite well.
Comfort (A+): As you read above the leather is incredibly suitable for rigorous boxing training sessions. It repels the water quite well and heat exchange is also a really important factor for comfort so your hands will definitely sweat less.
Padding: Foam is denser than usual. So what does this mean? When the foam is denser, the shock absorbing area actually enlarges so it protects your hands better. It also adds a bit extra weight but it is only a couple of grams and remember that the leather is lighter than usual so the speed of your punch will not be affected.
Does Venum Sharp Have Break-in Period? As many other handmade gloves, Venum Sharp also has a break-in period, however, thanks to Nappa leather’s qualities, it is way shorter than the others. After only two sessions, Venum Sharp will be fully broken in. So it is not much at all.
Cost Efficiency: Nappa is the most quality cover material, which Venum uses for boxing gloves, by far! However, in my opinion, the price should be a little bit better. But if you have the cash, you may want to spend extra a few dollars for this leather.
Looks: This pair looks absolutely amazing. It has cool color selections and hardcore design which is one of Venum’s signatures. When I look at boxing gloves even if I don’t see the logo I can understand whether it is Venum or not. Also, the logo looks awesome, right? Keep in mind that it is actually 3 dimensional and in real life, it looks even better.

Handmade: Some low-quality Venum Gloves are made in Pakistan, however, this pair is handmade in Thailand.
Who Should Get Venum Sharp Boxing Gloves: It lasts a long time and it is all around good quality gloves and the protection is not bad at all. In my opinion, if you are a beginner or intermediate level fighter you can get it. If you fall in any of these categories, then get your Venum Sharp.
However, if you have advanced skills and know your style, you can get a more suitable pair for your preferences. Let’s say that you are looking for more speed Cleto Reyes might be a better fit for you or you think of sparring a lot and don’t want to knock out your partner’s tooth, you may need to prefer gloves which have really soft padding.
Fitting: Venum uses pretty standard sizing for a lot of training gloves. Elite, Challenger are just a few examples for that and even though I never tested these gloves the fitting reviews are quite good.
In conclusion, I think that Venum Sharp is a unique pair and if you need any more information or you want me to compare it with other gloves, just leave a comment below.

Wow these look like a very nice pair of gloves. Venum can make some hits and misses when it comes to boxing and mma gloves, but I know you cannot go wrong with a pair made in Thailand. It doesn’t get much more legit than that. The padding looks excellent, and I love the look of the gloves as well.
Venum’s some gloves are above average but some definitely just should not be used for boxing. And I also realized that if the pair is made in Thailand it is better. It is seriously strange but it is what it is. These gloves also have that hardcore and colorful design which makes it appealing to the eyes.
