QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What is master’s boxing?
Masters Boxing is an Amateur division sanctioned by USA Boxing for those ages 35 and older.
How can I compete in the Master’s Division?
You first must be 35 years of age or older. You must register with USA Boxing as a master boxer. You must also have a yearly physical with your Doctor clearing you as fit to box. For those ages 45 and older, you must also have a stress test, also known as an exercise EKG every 5 years. Once that is complete, you send your paperwork to your local boxing commission that in return, sends you a yellow passbook and now you are ready to compete. Full details below on our HOW TO BECOME A MASTER BOXER.

I will not have a coach with me to corner me, what do I do?
We will have certified coaches at the tournament ready to help and corner you. We understand that not everyone can have their coach or trainer travel with them so we are here to help. Let us know ahead of time so we can assign a coach.
How do we get matched up for the tournament?
You are matched up by age, weight, and experience.
USA Boxing allows ages to be within 10 years up or down, however, we try to keep it within a 5-year difference.
USA Boxing has weight classes that allow a difference in weight of 8lbs, 10lbs, and 15lbs depending on your weight class. Our goal is to keep each match within 5lbs. The list of weight classes will be posted below.
USA Boxing uses a Novice and Open class. 0 to 10 bouts being a novice and 11 or more bouts being Open. Again, our goal is to keep the matchups as close as possible. Novice, especially those with no competition experience, we try to match within 0 to 3 bouts.
What if I don’t get a match or I have to drop out of the tournament, what is the refund policy?
We understand that things happen and changes sometimes have to be made. With that said, If you do not get a match you will be refunded 100% of your entry fee without question. If for whatever reason you have to drop out. A full refund will be given up until May 2021. No refunds will be given to drop outs after May 2021.
