Fairtex has been making elite-level gloves since 1975. The Fairtex BGV1 Muay Thai Style Sparring Gloves is no exception. Although these gloves are not seen in pro boxing rings, its quality is undeniable. If you’re in a gym that trains MMA and Muay Thai you probably seen this gloves.
People normally don’t necessarily think “Fairtex” when asked about the best boxing gloves. The brand has been proactively promoting Muay Thai Figthers ever since it started. That’s why these gloves and the brand are not synonymous to “boxing”.
The reason behind Fairtex’s amazing built and construction is the people who made it. The gloves are created by experienced craftsmen in Thailand by hand; that’s why the stitches and seams are solid, well placed and its weight is evenly distributed.
At first glance, you can immediately see the materials are top notch. The gloves are made of premium grade leather; it feels and looks great, won’t swell as fast, and won’t degrade easily.

CUSTOMER REVIEW AND SCORES
Fairtex has continued to be relevant because of its quality. The gloves are time-tested by Muay Thai figthers and MMA fighters. Recently, boxers have also fallen in love with Fairtex. It’s because of the simple and yet effective design.
NEGATIVE – Tight fit for people with big hands
We asked user of these gloves. The comments that always pops up are that they are “small for my hands.” These are the recurring negative feedback. However, only a few people said these.
People with bigger hands will have a hard time using these gloves. They are a bit fit. Fortunately, they have recently created new sizes – they even have 18 oz gloves now.
POSITIVE – High quality product
Most of the feedback were positive. A lot of users praised the gloves. The words “high quality” would always be on their lips while describing these.
One user even compared it to the cheap $20 Everlast. After investing with Fairtex gloves, he said “I now know what a good pair of gloves feel like.”
The manufacturers made these by hand so there is bound to be a break-in period. After the break-in period, though, you will feel as if the gloves are tailored made for you. Since they’re Muay Thai Boxing Gloves, they are more flexible compared to other boxing gloves.
This is a great alternative to the many other big boxing brands. They have been in the industry for 40 years and their quality has not declined. These are best for people that box for fitness or leisure. Sparring, mitts training and heavy bag hitting is what these gloves are made for. If you’re into MMA, Muay Thai or other combat sports, these are great, too. They offer great hand protection and will take a hell amount of punishment before they break.
