What do I use for bag & focus pad training?

The Mexican Fuerte™ range of equipment includes Fuerte Leather Bag Mitts for extended bag and pad work sessions, ensuring your Elite Boxing Gloves have the longest life span.

Fuerte Elite VS Ultra Boxing Gloves?

It's all in the feeling!

The Fuerte Ultra Boxing Gloves have the most luxurious, soft, and broken in hand-fit in the Punch Equipment range.

These stunning boxing gloves are also made with the highest grade, garment quality cowhide leather available to aid in the making of the most effortless fist possible.

The Fuerte Elite boxing gloves are closer related to a traditional Mexican designed boxing glove which houses a streamlined, firm hand-fit & 'punchers' style feedback making this glove feel impressively compact, delivering sharp feedback to the boxer.

What should you wear under your boxing gloves?

Punch Equipment always recommends wearing a pair of boxing hand wraps underneath your boxing gloves.
For the Fuerte range, we highly recommend grabbing a pair of Mexican Fuerte 5m boxing hand wraps to minimise the sweat and moisture absorbing into your boxing gloves and provide protection/stability over your knuckles, joints & palm.

Product Care Tips

  • Do not use training gear wet - this is abuse and will dramatically increase the effects of wear and tear.
  • After training, always dry your training gear out of your training bag in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight.
  • Where required use a small amount of baby powder on the inside of your gloves to assist with removing excess moisture/sweat and preventing odours.
  • Always use cotton inners or boxing wraps to prevent excess sweat and moisture from deteriorating your products, wear and tear caused by sweat/rot are not covered under warranty.
  • Ensure you have enough training gear to always use a dry set, especially in a fight gym or commercial training environment as overusing an insufficient amount of equipment is abuse and will void your warranty.
  • If you train more than 3-4 times a week, we recommend utilising a second set of equipment to ensure you always have dry equipment.
  • Do not complete push-ups in your boxing gloves unless they specifically state "push up zone" on them.
  • If the product is marked "washable", hand wash the product separately with cold water, do not tumble dry and avoid washing more than 4 times per year.
  • All speed-balls/floor-to-ceiling balls require weekly inflation and maintenance.
  • Never strike a speedball/floor-to-ceiling ball with bare knuckles.
  • Do not overinflate bladders, especially in hot and humid conditions.
  • Inflate the bladder until the ball feels firm (not rock-hard) allowing your thumbs to gently push into the casing material approx 1.5cm.
  • Changes in temperature will affect require the user to give regular "topping up" of the air into inflated bladders.
  • Lick or lubricate your pump needle before inserting it into bladders, monitor the needle during inflation to avoid accidental bladder punctures.
  • Ensure floor-to-ceiling ball straps are not set too tight, the ball should have a minimum of 25cm of movement in any direction, any less will cause added stress and damage the ball/straps.
  • Straps and bladders are perishable, high wear and tear items and are excluded from manufacturing faults warranty.
  • Set your floor to ceiling ball to the approx. height of your chest for optimal training results.
  • The fitting of non-Punch Equipment accessories to your speed ball/floor to ceiling ball will void your warranty.
  • As wall brackets and ceiling hook attachments can take a considerable amount of force with general boxing bag use, Punch Equipment recommends your boxing bag is installed by a qualified tradesman to ensure proper installation is followed.
  • Review this installation video to increase the durability of your boxing bag bracket and chains: https://youtu.be/AtpZWNTzPyw
  • If you change the fittings/filling or adjust the strap/chain lengths you will void your manufacturing faults warranty.
  • Metal on metal sheering of chains, swivels, replaceable eye-bolts and hooks are effects from wear and tear and are not covered under warranty.
  • Only use stretchy rubber-type materials to fix a boxing bag to the floor with the tie-down anchor feature.
  • Avoid D ring and figure 8 ring wear on boxing bags by hanging them with 10mm rope instead of chain.
  • Boxing bags hung with twisted straps/chain is negligent of assembly and may void your warranty.
  • Beating punching bags with weapons, striking with bare knuckles or shoes may puncture/damage bags which is not covered under warranty.

44 reviews for Mexican Fuerte™ Elite Boxing Gloves

  1. 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 used for: Sparring, serious fighters

  2. 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.

  3. 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

    Best used for: Sparring

  4. 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 used for: Flogging people.

  5. 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 used for: Sparring and hitting mitts.

  6. ervin tomeldan

    best boxing gloves i have owned period!

  7. Jason

    Excellent high quality glove. Very well balanced design for boxing sparring with excellent feedback and good protection

    Pros: High quality leather, excellent craftmanship, good weight balance, good hand protection. Decent for muay thai too.

    Cons: Not the best protection for your opponent

    Best used for: Boxing, kickboxing & muay thai sparring

  8. Daniel Jacobs

    Best gloves I’ve used in over 15 years have 3 pairs

    Pros: feel Padding Wrist support

    Cons: None really

    Best used for: Heavy bag and pad work

  9. Joshua smith

    I have a few set of punch gloves but these are now my go to. They are a comfortable fit with or without wraps. The thumb placement is perfect for my style, and they have great support around the wrist. Just an overall great design.

    Pros: comfort and support

    Best used for: Great all round glove

  10. Tori

    By Far the best glove I’ve used. Feel great connections when landing and wrist is well supported.

    Pros: I’ve had them for 2 years and still feel great.

    Cons: None

    Best used for: Sparring

  11. 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 used for: Sparring

  12. 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 used for: Long term investment for beginners to semi-pro for pad work or bag work

  13. Brad

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

    Pros: Comfort and style are great

    Cons: None

    Best used for: Perfect all round

  14. Jeff

    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 used for: Perfect for allround in boxing.

  15. Troy Richards

    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.

  16. 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.

    Pros: Comfort, fit, durability.

    Cons: None

    Best used for: All round

  17. 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

  18. 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 used for: All round training glove

  19. Tori_work

    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.

  20. Taylor

    Very well made glove can tell from first use

    Pros: Keeps thumb protected and allows for punches to land accurately

    Cons: Padding can wear down a bit if used on heavy bag a lot. This is more of a sparring glove

    Best used for: Sparring

  32. 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 used 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.

  33. paul_delprete

    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”.

  44. 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.
