Re: Can you do amateur boxing in a country or state you're not a citizen/resident of?
I know here (Canada) for advancing tournaments you do need to be a resident, or landed immigrant, or some such thing. I am fairly sure it is similar in the states also, as I know I can't just go compete in their golden gloves, or any advancing tournaments. But I do fight there and in their club shows. I'd look into it more here but seeing as you are going to the states, why not send the commision an e-mail and ask them what the procedure would be? They may have some sort of thing in place for this for students and who knows, maybe have a form or something you could do ahead of time to allow for it, the advancing tournaments.
