Nope. Not in the US. Masters Division is what a regular amateur fight is in the US for over 35; exhibitions don't go in the US, or aren't supposed to happen. And if they do they won't count for any record and usually you aren't going to be wearing normal competition gloves in an exhibition if someone puts one on.
