Today in class our friend Ryan showed us his boxing equipment. He told us what each piece of equipment was for and where you wear it. First he showed us his headgear and gum shield. He told us that he wears the helmet to prevent head injury. He told us that the gum shield stops people knocking out your teeth. Then he showed us his special shoes and gloves. The shoes have extra strong grip and flexible toes so he can move faster in the ring. He showed us his gloves that he used for training and he said they weighed about 16 ounces but he would normally wear an 18 ounce pair of gloves in a competition. He told us that he has won 28 trophies and has a few titles.
