I'm 6ft tall and weight 80kg. I'm not fat and neither slim. I'm of average build. An ideal glove size for me is 16 oz. Since Decathlon doesn't offer 16 oz, I went for the next closest one, 14oz.
I used it for one day for heavy bag workouts and sparring and here is my experience.
During heavy bag workouts, you will punch hard. During my third round of punching, I started to feel soreness in my left fingers. It's not due to my incorrect punching style but due to less padding a 14 oz gloves offer.
The style of the gloves is also different. Unlike Everlast (the only other boxing gloves I have used that is free to be picked in my gym), the front portion of the gloves is flat. Everlast gloves has a cushion type front which makes it more comfortable to do heavy bag workouts.
This box is amazing for sparring. It's sleek and comfortable to wear.
I haven't used it for Mitt work and I don't think I will have a pleasant experience due to the less padding it offers upfront.
My verdict: Anyways you have decided to spend, spend little more and get a 16 oz gloves.
It is awesome I suggest all of you to buy this product
Good first pair for 8 year old.
Great for beginners and low useage
Purchased for nephew for his birthday, he loved them, well made, fast delivery, would recommend
Very poor quality- spend a bit more and get something of higher quality

Bought 6oz gloves for my son and the 10oz for myself, so we can playful box.
