You can always go to public weigh-ins, press conferences, training days etc. Going to gyms is also feasible; I've seen both Arnie and Billy Nelson say their gyms are open to anyone from here that wants to go.

As for contacting fighters/trainers, you could always use Twitter. As a matter of fact, I recently seen Kevin Mitchell signing gloves for people that asked on there. Frankie Gavin in the past also offered anyone on here a signed glove if they wanted one.

We're lucky because boxing figures are so accessible, so you really shouldn't have a problem getting some signed stuff

I seen on Kevin Mitchell's Twitter also he was getting gloves signed for people who asked.

You can get allsort's of signed thing's, just got to make sure it's real. I got a signed Floyd Mayweather picture with COA off eBay for 11 (with P&P) because whoever was selling it never put a reserve on the item. Sometime's you can grab a bargain, but always make sure there's a COA.

Then as people said, there's alway's going to fight's (i've got thing's signed by multiple fighter's, trainers, promoters, etc by attending fights). Then there's press conferences, training sessions, etc

I normally just take a few gloves when I go to weigh-ins. Got McGuigan and Watt at the Froch-Bute weigh-in which I was pretty happy with.

Most fighters are more than happy to sign stuff if you just ask nicely & don't pester them. Carl Frampton signed some gloves for me & I have to say he couldn't have been helpful! Top,top guy!
