These beautifully hand-crafted boxing gloves are primarily designed for sparring.
If you’re looking for a hard-hitting fist position, premium sparring glove, this boxing glove is for you.

What do I use for bag & focus pad training?

The Mexican Fuerte™ range of equipment includes professional leather bag mitts for extended bag and pad work sessions to ensure your sparring gloves have the longest life span.

Ultra VS Elite

It’s all in the feeling!

The Ultra boxing gloves have the most luxurious, soft, & relaxed hand-fit/thumb in the Punch Equipment range.
These stunning gloves are also made with the highest grade cowhide leather available to aid in maki the most effortless fist possible.

The Elite boxing gloves are closer to a traditionally shaped Mexican Boxing glove which houses a streamlined, firmer hand-fit & SNUG fist shaping making this glove feel impressively compact with its specialist deeply turned in-thumb as an added glove feature.

What should I wear under my gloves?

While cotton inners should be the bare minimum underneath your boxing gloves to increase the lifespan of your gloves,
We recommend grabbing a pair of Mexican 5m hand wraps to minimize the sweat getting into your gloves provide protection/stability over your knuckles, joints & palm.

  1. Luke Woods

    Luke absolutely loves his new gloves and has been punishing them on bags, pads and sparring. Just to see how they would cope. He’s amazed. Never thought he would ever wear 16oz spending last 12 years sparring in 12oz and 10oz on bags but their balanced weighting and fist forming comfort makes his hands feel great and no soreness.

  2. Lisa Garton

    This glove is amazing! The comfort is exceptional; very soft and secure while moulding to your hand. The wrist and hand protection is superb and durability is unquestionable. I have no fear of injuring myself thanks to the support it provides. As cliché as it is, this glove truly upholds the old saying “fits like a glove”.

    Great gloves – light weight and moulds beautifully to your hand. You certainly don’t realise they are a 16oz gloves whilst using them.

    Would highly recommend.

  13. Uzair Khan

    After using it in sparring sessions.

    Pros: Comfy ,attractive, nice padding, thumb protection.

    Cons: Would be nice if valcro is more thick and firm like cleto ryes gloves.

    Best user for: I bought these gloves for sparring only and they are fantastic gloves. Got in white colour they are very attractive. With other gloves i would worry about hurting my fingers (as happened to me in shi**y hayabusa gloves) and would hesitate while throwing bigger shots . But with these gloves i go as hard as i want and i dont feel my knuckle and fingers.

  14. Gino Vallelonga

    The quality is unbelievable. They have taken a beating in the past 12 months and are still is great condition. The fit and wrist support have really helped me as my wrist have given me problems in the past but no problems with these. Highly recommend.

  27. Joel Hannah

    I recently purchased a pair of these Mexican Elite Fuerte Boxing Gloves in yellow – and they are without doubt the best boxing gloves I have ever worn!

    The snug fit is extremely comfortable, the leather is soft and of top top quality and unlike many of Punch Equipments elite Mexican and U.S. competitors – these gloves seem to only be getting better with wear!

    The weight of the gloves is superb (perfectly balanced) and have served me wonderfully as a great all round training/bag/sparring glove.

    I will be purchasing these gloves again without doubt (in green next time).

    Thanks Punch Equipment!

    Pros: Soft strong leather Superb fit Perfectly balanced Stunning to look at

    Cons: None

    Best user for: All round training glove

  28. matthew_norwood

    Have sparred in these for the last 12 months

    16oz feel more like a 12oz glove due to weight distribution and balance.

    Will stay my go-to glove for many many more sessions

  29. Jarryd Sullivan

    These things are the boss! I have been using these multiple times per week for a while now and they are still like brand new. They are soft and fit well and perfect for a variety of training. The weight distribution is really nice also.

    Cons: None

    I have been using PUNCH brand in my boxing gym for many years, along with other brands.Usually if you want the best top of the range quality boxing equipment you have to buy overseas products, not anymore. An Australian based company is finally producing a high-end line of boxing products, if your like me, and only like the best for your boxers stick with PUNCH, you won’t dissapointed.

    Pros: You can support Aussie retailers.

    Cons: None.

  31. Jeff (verified owner)

    After buying the Ultra gloves I was super impressed which lead me to also purchase the Elite for comparison. Again, impressed with the comfort and design, since the first wear without any break-in period. The protection you get from such a slim model is fantastic. With some experience in product development I must give my admiration for the thought and design that’s put into these Mexican style gloves. They nailed the value for money in the Fuerte range. Personally the comfort and quality of the Ultra has my favor, still glad to add this glove into the rotation. Especially for the heavy bag the Elite has a great feel and feedback. Because of this I will sell my Cleto Reyes gloves. Thats a big complement towards Punch Equipment.

    Pros: Comfort, style, feels light for it's size and versitality.

    Cons: My only worry would be the Velcro . Feels a bit flimsy. Hope it will last.

    Best user for: Perfect for allround in boxing.

  32. Brad

    An excellent glove that meets all advertised expectations. Very comfortable and great hitting power

    Pros: Comfort and style are great

    Cons: None

    Best user for: Perfect all round

  33. Rey G

    Great gloves with awesome padding!

    Pros: Easy to dry and so far my 12 month old gloves doesn't smell (just air it after finished using) after 6 hours of weekly use. Velcrow is durable

    Cons: Fit medium to larger hands

    Best user for: Long term investment for beginners to semi-pro for pad work or bag work

  34. Tyler Nugent

    These gloves are absolutely FANTASTIC bought 16 oz for sparring. Not to mention the white gloves are stunning with the red inside. Perfect balance and feels like your wearing 10 oz gloves. 100% would purchase over and over again not that you would need to with the amazing quality.

    Pros: Amazing balance through out the glove, amazing quality and stunning colours!

    Cons: The red on the inside seeps through abit but don’t really notice it

    Best user for: Sparring

    best boxing gloves i have owned period!

  40. Syed Gillani

    Punch equipment Australia is the only Australia company that I believe is manufacturing world class equipment and their Mexican Fuerte line is simply the best. Mexican Fuerte Elite boxing glove is my second favourite glove out of Punch equipment entire line while Mexican Fuerte Ultra boxing glove being my No. 1 favourite.
    I am a big fan of mexican style gloves, Cleto Reyes being my favourite but these gloves give me almost the same feeling but at a better price. This glove can easily match the $360 – $450 range Cleto Reyes glove. The stitching is the beautiful, the leather they have used it extremely good quality. I personally don’t use these for hitting the bag as I have proper bag gloves for hitting the bag. I would recommend that if you want to increase their life, use them for sparring and hitting pads. I also own Mexican Fuerte ultra boxing glove and I don’t use that one on bags as well as I have spent my hard earned money on them and want them to last as long as they can. But that’s just me if you want to hit the bag with it then you can absolutely do so. They provide you with excellent wrist support and amazing knuckle protection. The padding is immaculate, very intelligent design.
    I would advise everyone if you can afford it then use Punch equipment bag gloves or Trophy getters (My third favourite Punch equipment boxing glove) for your bag work while using these Mexican ones for hitting the mitts or sparring. If you are low on cash then Punch Trophy getters is an excellent glove as well but the Mexican line is worth every penny.
    They are really comfortable from the get go, minimal breaking in required.

    Pros: Hand safety, comfortable, beautiful leather, practical design , value for money.

    Cons: None.

    Best user for: Sparring and hitting mitts.

  41. Sean Bowes

    Great gloves. Not as good as the Ultras.

    Pros: Good solid glove. Lots of wrist support. Firm punching surface. Not too much padding.

    Cons: More stiff than the Ultras. They hold your fist a bit too straight/in extension.

    Best user for: Flogging people.

  42. Michael

    Great gloves. Bought mine a year ago and they’re holding up great. So comfortable and supportive.

    Pros: Comfortable, supportive and really well made.

    Cons: None

  43. Sidney Dracotte

    Closet thing to a pro glove i have felt without being one. So well balanced and fitted. made me wonder where the flaw in it is and after a solid 3 moths of heavy use they are still like new. ‘
    right up there with the well known Mexican, American and Japanese made gloves.

  44. Jason Lakomy

    Incredible glove for sparring, the weight distribution is second to none and the design is also aesthetically pleasing. Love the turned thumb for a comfortable fist position. In 15 years of boxing and coaching experience, this is one of the best gloves I’ve ever seen!

    Pros: Compact, weight distribution, sharp punching and perfect for sparring

    Cons: Some may not like the curved thumb and want a more relaxed fist (best get the Ultra instead then)

    Best user for: Sparring, serious fighters
