Default cities with big amateur boxing scenes?

i am from a small town and i am lucky to have the one boxing gym 10-15 min from my house but i am looking to move to get a more serious about boxing.

Would i be wrong to think that its just the bigger cities that have a larger boxing scene. Or are specific cities known for amateur boxing ?

Chicago, Philly, Detroit, LA, Vegas, NYC, Miami would probably have the most choices.

Gleason's is the famous gym in NYC, but I'm sure there are tons more.

i've been trying to find a listing of amateur events in the Chicago area but they always seem to be far and few between.

I would start by calling local gyms and asking about upcoming tournaments.

I think Pugs Gym in Chicago has fighters in the Golden Glove tourney (according to Google).

Past that, you can try these as starting points for more phone calls and investigating. I'm sure if you call enough people you will find what you are looking for.
