You do realize you don't get paid in amateur boxing, right? Go to college, if you're this new to boxing and are old enough to be joining the Army you're not going to make money in boxing as anything other than a tomato can; and going off your spelling you probably shouldn't kill many more brain cells.

Which headguards are allowed in the UK? I really hate the adidas ones.

I started boxing at 23 but haven't taken an amateur fight yet since my training has been so broken up. If you have you're a novice but are over the age of 18, do they generally match you against other beginners or are you pretty much thrown in the open ocean?

You are matched against other beginners.(If you have a half decent coach)
I had my 1st against another guy who was having his 1st

You can enlist in the Army at 17. You don't think anyone can become more than a tomato can if they start boxing older than 17...? Not true.

I guess it depends where you're from. I live in Southern Ontario, Canada. We have 2 boxing associations that I know of and their rules may vary slightly tho i'm not certain.

Personally, i'm 37 and have competed against guys ranging from 21-28. We have a masters division, but the boxing world here is small, and I have yet to find an opponent in my age & weight category (age 35+ and 139 lb). I know of one other guy from another club who is 38 and also fights in the 19+ division.

USAs, PAL, Armed Forces (obviously limited to servicemembers), the Ringside tournament isn't a ranking tournament but is really popular.

I was wondering if someone could explain the University Boxing in Britain, my uni has a boxing club & I know others have and there is a tournament for all the unis BUC. I was wondering if this is considered actual amateur boxing or just seen as exhibition ala white-collar boxing and that. Ive been told it is but im not sure. Thanks

Absolutely, you should be matched against another novice. I don't know how hard & steadfast that rule is, but it's a standard rule of thumb.
After 34, I guess someone from the UK can answer that. I'm from Ontario, Canada and we are a little more lenient, and have 34+ competing in the regular amateurs.

Good luck in your first fight - let us know how it goes.

What country is this in? I have a friend who's a qualified trainer I normally compete out of a gym, but i'm just wondering if this is a possibility for me
