I need some new boxing gloves, shit got hectic whenever I fought back
Sam cannot fight his feelings for Salem anymore so he needs some new ‘boxing gloves’ to fight them as they are worn out from all of his over-thinking. He is now having a difficult time contending with his complicated feelings of love. Cupid has great aim! ;)
This also relates to the last line, “I accidentally caught that” — It is extremely hard to catch things while wearing boxing gloves, especially feelings.
