U.S.A. Masters Boxing

Welcome to the new USA Masters Boxing website. Our goal since we started in 2003 has been to create a central location of information for master boxers and those looking to become master boxers. We understand it can still be a challenge to gather the information needed to compete or to find events for master boxers. This is why we are here and hope you find the website helpful. Along the way, we also created some platforms so master boxers can share their journeys and inspire others. Masters boxing is unique and we consider all that are part of the division family. So welcome to the family!

So what is Masters Boxing? and who can compete in this division? Masters boxing is an amatuer boxing division sanctioned by USA Boxing. To compete you must be 35 years of age or older, have never competed in any combat sport as a professional, and must be registered with an up to date USA Boxing Masters passbook and yearly physical. Those that are 45 years of age or older must also pass an exercise EKG also known as a stress test (the ekg is valid for 5 years). The process can sometimes be a challenge so we built this website to help guide you and hopefully answer any questions you might have. For a step by step guide on how to get your yellow USA Boxing Masters passbook, click on the link below.

HOW TO GET YOUR YELLOW USA BOXING MASTERS PASSBOOK 

Master Boxing Donations

If you would like to support and donate, all donations go to help with the yearly cost of the website. Donations also help fund additional services to our tournaments, specifically our live streams. We understand we have masters competing from all over the world and not all friends and family can travel with you so a livestream of the bouts are very important but often unbudgeted do to other expenses. Take for example the 3rd Annual Las Vegas Masters Invitational that had 2 rings but only able to stream 1 ring do to other expenses taking priority over the live stream. Sponsors are little to none at this time so often expenses for a live stream comes out of pocket. We want to be proactive so our next tournament we are able to live stream  all bouts no matter if it’s 1 or 2 rings. Your donations go a long way. Below find the live stream of Ring 1 at the Las Vegas Masters Invitational.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MASTERS

Though masters boxing is sanctioned under USA Boxing and the majority of the rules that apply to the younger amateur divisions, there are a few rules that are specific to the masters division only. When competing, the headgear that you are required to have is currently made by only 3 companies. Title Boxing, Ringside, and Sting. The difference is the master headgear is 16 oz vs 12 or 10 oz of the regular competition headgear. Masters also use 16oz USA Boxing approved gloves that are provided by event that you are competing in. The Masters Division also has it’s own forms for the yearly physical that is required in order to compete. If you are 45 years of age or older you also require and exercise EKG also known as a stress test. The EKG is good for 5 years.

We now have new weight classes will be used in the masters division so it is important to understand where the weight class starts and ends and what the weight differential allowance is. You can find more detail on weight classes by clicking on the link below, weight classes explained.

Age differential can not be more than 10 years and master boxers may not box other boxers under the age of 35.
