Masters boxing is exactly the same as any other ABA bout.

You train at a normal ABA club and box on normal club shows with juniors and seniors. The only differences are that you have to have a medical every year and your coach has to match you with lads between 34 and 40. There's no special way of getting into it - it's just normal am boxing.

There aren't many masters available to box at present so you may have to travel to get bouts and I wouldn't expect to be boxing too often.

Hope this helps mate.
