HOW WILL I BE MATCHED UP?

We take our matchmaking seriously and safety is our number one priority. The goal is to match you as close as possible to your potential opponents by using age, weight, and experience as our guidelines. USA Boxing allows masters to compete within 10 years of each other but we will do our best to keep it within 5 years or less. USA Boxing has weight classes that allow 8, 10 or 15 pounds weight difference. We will again do our best to match within 5 lbs or less. We have two divisions for experience and that is Novice being 0 to 10 bouts and Open being 11 or more bouts. We will work to keep the novice bout difference to 3 or fewer bouts and the open division as close as possible.

WHAT IF MY COACH CAN’T TRAVEL WITH ME?

We recommend that your coach travels with you if that option is available, however, we understand the challenge so we will have USA Boxing certified coaches ready to help out. Let us know that you will be needing a coach so that we can pre-assign. This will keep things organized and allow you to fully focus on your bout.

WHAT EQUIPMENT WILL I NEED TO BRING?

We will provide the 16oz USA Boxing approved masters boxing gloves. You will need to bring your USA Boxing approved masters headgear (Title and Ringside are the only companies that sell them). You are responsible for your boxing trunks and top with the trunks waistline being a different color than your top. You are also responsible to bring your boxing shoes, protective cup, boxing hand wraps, tape, and mouthpiece (mouthpiece cannot have any red on it). If you forget any of the items, not to worry, we will have plenty at the event, we’ll have you covered.

HOW MANY BOUTS WILL I HAVE?

If you are in a 3 boxer bracket, a name drawing will take place with 1 boxer having a bye on Saturday and advancing to the Championship bout on Sunday. The other two will compete Saturday with the winner advancing to the Championship bout on Sunday for the title. If you are in a 2 boxer bracket, you will compete, either Saturday or Sunday, depending on the schedule and the bout will be for the title.
