The San Antonio Regional Golden Gloves Tournament is the first step a local amateur boxer takes towards possible national recognition. The tournament is open to any individual 17 to 34 years of age who qualifies under the rules of the sanctioning body, the United States Amateur Boxing Federation. Each boxer must also pass a rigid physical examination. There is no charge for participation.
The boxers compete in three divisions – Open, Novice and Sub-Novice. A Sub-Novice boxer enters the competition with no fights. A Novice Division boxer is a beginner with generally less that ten recognized matches. An Open Division boxer is more experienced and can participate in the National Tournament.
A winner in the Open division weight class here in San Antonio will move on to the State Tournament that will be held in Fort Worth. If he/she is a winner, it’s on to the National Tournament of Champions!
The local tournament is organized and benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio and you can join the fun and become a sponsor of the tournament.
