I was wondering because I want to keep doing amateur boxing while I'm getting my Master's Degree next year(hopefully, provided I get accepted to another college), and the American colleges I'm applying to I won't be a resident of when I get there(Washington, Wisconsin, maybe California). I also thought about applying to a Euro college like the University of Stockholm(the tuition there seems to be "free" and paid for by the government) and I know Euro boxing has good opportunities. But I was wondering if you could do any type of amateur boxing matches in places you're not a resident or citizen of? And I'm guessing being a part of tournaments or any types of advancing events would be tougher to be part of for nonresidents?
Just wondering.

It doesn't matter if you're a resident of the state you live in. You're registered with USA Boxing, all you do is transfer your LBC when you move.
