- Protect your hands when boxing
- They are worn inside your boxing gloves to keep them clean
- Skin is protected when striking
There are a number of reasons as to why you would want a pair of boxing inners. Firstly, they help to protect the skin and stop abrasions. When striking with bare knuckles, your skin may rub against the glove and cause damage, wearing inners will help to prevent any rubbing/abrasions.
Secondly, during classes the gloves are often shared. After some time not wearing inners can leave the gloves pretty unsavory. Not only that but swapping gloves after sweating inside them will not feel good or be hygienic for the other person needing to share. Wearing inners keeps the gloves fresh and clean for all.
