One more equipment thread if I may, I have got kit on the brain at the moment. Decided to buy myself some high quality sparring gloves to save for sparring only. This will mean I will be doing all my pad work, focus mitts and heavy bag work (ie 90% of my training!) with a pair of 14oz Ampro 55 sparring gloves that I am currently using for everything. These are leather and seem pretty well made, but it seems strange saving a pair of £60 gloves for infrequent sparring whilst using a pair of £25 gloves four times a week. Is there a reason (other than cost) to invest in a pair of proper bag gloves for every day training and retire my Ampros to spares? To clarify (because I know this gets asked a lot) I am not asking whether I can use the same gloves for sparring and pad work. I'm going to save my sparring gloves for sparring. This is about whether I can use my cheap leather 14oz sparring gloves for pads/mitts/bag without ill effects to my hands/joints etc.
