  1. Again, as a profane to the sport,I really didn’t know you could have such a wide choice Furkan. My son when he was sparring and ended up taking part in some minor local competition, did get a couple of sets, very different from each other in weight and shape. But me, I’ve never got the hang of it all, other than his safety. It is reassuring therefore to learn that clubs are quite strict on what is allowed and not, as it shows their interest for the safety of the boxer is paramount.
    Thank you for the info, Furkan.
