Yes, I've fought a professional MMA fighter in an amateur contest.

That will be different in the US, once you're a pro in any combat sport here you can't box in USA Boxing.

if you are a registered amateur do you need a trainer to sign up for tournaments?

Depends. I BELIEVE an AIBA book, which is what most of the world uses, it valid worldwide. When Canadians come to the US they use their blue AIBA books and our Chief of Officials at the shows in the US fill them out just the same. I don't think however that a USA Boxing book would be valid overseas, typically when our national teams go over they have an International book they carry as well as their domestic USA Boxing passbook.

I have a question.

If your over 35 I heard you have to fight in something called "the masters division", where you can only fight against others in that same division and extra padding and extra large gloves are often required.

Is there any what to get around that and just fight regular amateur fights, like exebitions maybe?

Nope. Not in the US. Masters Division is what a regular amateur fight is in the US for over 35; exhibitions don't go in the US, or aren't supposed to happen. And if they do they won't count for any record and usually you aren't going to be wearing normal competition gloves in an exhibition if someone puts one on.

I have a friend who is ready to compete. Can he register and fight right after that or does he have to wait until September? I ask because I seem to remember something about a registration freeze from July 1-August 31, but I don't know if they still do that.

That's up to your trainer. No set time frame for that.

I don't think you need a trainer. At the last GG I was in at least two of the fighters weren't attached to any gym and trainers/coaches were assigned to them to be in their corner.

Competing in USA Boxing:

To do this you'll need to find the registration chair for your LBC. USA Boxing is composed of LBCs (Local Boxing Committee) and is responsible for the registration of all people in their jurisdiction. For example, if you live in Washington DC, you would register in the Potomac Valley Association LBC (and as an aside, you would need to go to Sugar Ray Leonard's gym to do this). This is a full list of the LBCs in USA Boxing: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

To register you'll need 2 passport photos and a copy of your birth certificate, and if under 18, you need a parent signature. It costs 40 dollars a year and you're registered for the whole year that way. You'll be given a USA Boxing passbook which will over time reflect the record of the fights you've had. From there, you just need to get in a gym and get to work (typically, you would get your passbook after being in the gym a while, though). Also, as a note, you don't need to be with a gym to get registered. When the registration chair asks what club you're with, just say you're unattached.

Also, an extra note: the Golden Gloves is NOT a seperate sanctioning body. It is a franchise that is a member group of USA Boxing, along with the National PAL. Golden Gloves is a major ranking tournament that, like the USAs, begins at the LBC level, progresses to the regional (or in the case of Golden Gloves, franchise) level; and if you win that are on to the National Championships.

can you add the existing page as the link you added isnt available ( it is 8/29/11) so maybe it just ran out but if you could post a recent page it would be very grateful, im new to this, and am very interested as i dont not know how the army is going, and i need a fall back plan (sry) was this or college.. so hear i am if you could inform me it would be greatful if not its ok i can find out for myself.
