How to measure Boxing Glove size for your Fit
If right handed, measure your right hand, if left handed, then measure left.
Small size: 6″ to 7.5″ circumference = 12 oz. glove
Regular/Medium size: 7.5″ to 8.5″ circumference = 14 oz. glove
Large size: 8.5″ to 9.5″ circumference = 16 oz. glove
XL size: 9.5″ & above circumference = 18 oz. or 20 oz. glove
Most females generally wear a 12 oz. or 14 oz.
Boxing gloves brands are like different sneaker shoes brands, some run smaller or wider than others. Try them on with your hands wrapped. Always leather gloves are the best, they will conform nicely to fit your hands like custom, and will air out nicely, should last 1 to 2 years. Faux leather PLU, will last approx 4 to 6 months, they do not breath well at all. Of course all depends on how much you box and if a heavy hitter.

We know of two locations that offer the physical for $20. There are many places that do offer the sports physical, but if over 18 years old, the cost can be up to $75, so be sure to call first and state you only want it for sports, and not a full body physical.
