  • Chris

    Can you enter without a coach?

    • admin

      You need to have a US Boxing certified coach in your corner for all of your bouts.

  • Candelario Lopez

    Rule questions.
    National PAL ‘Fact Sheet’ has that male athlete may have a mustache. Per USA Boxing 2013 rules- Male athletes must be clean shaven.
    National PAL ‘Fact Sheet’ has that trunks must have a contrasting waist color than top. Per USA Boxing 2013 rules- Athletes must wear red or blue uniforms.

    • admin

      As you know USA Boxing rules have changed and continue to change year to year. So we still struggle to update our rules, with that said USA Boxing Rules will govern this event. Thank you and please refer to your USA Boxing Rule Book for the rules.

  • Jonny Toews

    For registration and weight check on Saturday/Sunday- do the fighters need to be on weight or within 2 pounds or something else? Or do they only need to be on weight the day of their bouts. The fact sheet isn’t specific to this.

    • admin

      There is no official weigh-in at registration there will be a test scale available to the boxers. At check-in/registration every boxer must declare weight, and they only need to weigh-in on the day they box.

  • Manny Flores

    Do all divsions need open face headgear, or just specifically the Mens Elite divsion?

    • admin

      All divisions need to have open face headgear in every division for every bout.

  • Ali Nasser

    For each boxer (1) , 2 coaches are required. Is that true?

    • admin

      Every Boxer must have at least ONE (1) USA Boxing Certified Coach in their corner. A Team of 7 or less are allowed up to TWO (2) Coaches Credentials, and teams of 8 or more will be allowed up to THREE (3) Coaches Credentials. Credentials are only issued to USA Boxing Certified Coaches.

  • Ali Nasser

    May I send my entry form in the mail, but pay the registration fee later during the 2 days of registration
    (Sep. 28/29)?

    • admin

      A Pre-Registration is not complete until payment is received. If you mail your registration without payment and your division fills you may lose your spot due to an incomplete registration.

  • jn

    If I only have one fight can I compete in the
    Men’s 19-40 , 201+ super heavy weight ?
    There is no 201+ really in my area . I’m 29 250lbs.
    what level clinic is my coach sposed to be level 1 ok ?
    Is there going to be a lot of people in 201+ weight class?

    • admin

      - Because this is a OPEN National Ranking Tournament all Male Boxers must be classified as Open with a minimum of FIVE (5) Certified Scored Bouts.
      - The Coaches need to have a Current USA Boxing Coaches Passbook and have attended a Coaches Clinic with the past 2 years.
      - Unfortunately there is no way to tell how many people will be in a specific division at this time.

  • Carlos Carrillo
