HOW MANY BOUTS WILL I HAVE?
How many bouts you will have will depend on the number of boxers who are in your bracket. If there are only 2 of you in a bracket then you will have 1 bout. If there are 3 or 4 in your bracket, you will need to win your first bout in order to advance to the championship bout on Sunday.

2 people in a Bracket = 1 bout

3 people in a bracket = 1 or 2 bouts (1 person would have a bye and would automatically advance to the championship on Sunday. The other two would compete Saturday to advance to the Championship bout on Sunday) There would be a drawing Saturday morning after weigh-ins to see who gets the bye.

4 people in a bracket = 1 bout if you lose Saturday 2 bouts if you win Saturday. If there are 4 people in your bracket then you have to win Saturday to advance to the Championship bout on Sunday. If you lose Saturday then you are out of the tournament.

HOW LONG WILL THE ROUNDS BE?
Novice = 0 – 10 bout experience will compete in 3, one and a half minute rounds.
Open = 11 or more bouts will compete in 3, two minute rounds.

CAN MY FRIEND CORNER ME FOR MY BOUTS?
Only if they have a valid and up-to-date USA Boxing Coaches passbook. Without it, they will not be allowed to corner you, no exceptions. Can I corner someone with my masters passbook? You can be a second but you can not go step on, or go into the ring.

WILL A CORNER PERSON BE PROVIDED?
We made arrangements with coaches to help those that are traveling without a corner person. We ask that you give them a $20 donation for their time and help. More information coming soon.
