USA Boxing hosted the first USA Boxing Masters Open in conjunction with the Western Regional Qualifier in Albuquerque, New Mexico, March 8-10, 2018.

The event had 16 different bouts over two days, showcased in their own ring alongside our Elite and Youth finals.

“With this event, USA Boxing was able to serve an underserved group within our membership. Masters boxers were able to gain great competition while being highlighted alongside some of the best up and coming prospects in our ranks,” stated Michael Campbell, USA Boxing Manager of Boxing Operations and Events. “The enthusiasm and resourcefulness of the boxers was amazing, and I look forward to continued growth for Masters boxing.”

USA Boxing’s Masters division is comprised of male and female boxers aged 35 and older. The inaugural event crowned Open winners from California, Colorado, New Jersey, New Mexico and Texas.
