What Experience Level Should I Fight In?  BE FAIR!

  • EXAMPLE: An Honest Trainer needs to ask themselves this question “Is my fighter good enough (regardless of their record) to fight against a fighter with 11-20 Full Contact Fights which will put them in B Class whether they have 11+ fights or not?” (this is only an example)

Note: You Can Fight Up but not down in regard to your fight record – whether semi contact experience or full contact.

  • SEMI CONTACT: We do not Count Semi Contact Bouts (PKB, PBSC etc) as real fights! However, the trainer should consider the experience of their fighter and place them in the correct experienced class…regardless of their full contact record -based on the aforementioned statement above. Example: if your fighter has over 10 PKB Fights, ideally, they should go in C-Class Open Division at minimum – See more below. Sand Bagging will be taken seriously.
  • A, B, C Classes:  We are in the process of implementing A, B, C Classes to try and create a safer competition for everyone. This is not done in all divisions at this time…only where we feel it is needed and, or requested. More to come in this development as we want to make sure we keep our event safe, quaint and with limited fighters. Note: If you have the proven experience and skills and not an official record, you still may be able to fight in a higher class but must be approved. Also, if it does not state a class on the division and says OPEN…it is for a belt- Novice is for a Cup…hope this is clear to everyone as we are in transition.

Classes to Register: If you have the experience level (not necessarily fights) to compete in the divisions below.  Proof may be requested.

A- Class OPEN – 21 Fights and Up – Belt

B- Class OPEN – 11-19 Fights – Belt

C- Class OPEN – 4- 10 Fights – Cup

NOVICE – Under 3 Fights – CUP AWARD –   If your next fight is your 4th – You will need to go into C-Class OPEN or above.  There will be an option to merge into another similar Class Division if you do not have an opponent as the tournament nears.

The reason that we are doing this is because when you have a fighter just breaking out of the Novice 0 to 3 fights’ range and go into the Open Division to fight a fighter with a huge record…we feel that this does not give this newly Open Fighter a fair chance.  However, bigger than that…it poses safety risks that we feel we do not have to take at this time in these young fighter’s careers.  This is not a reflection on how any other group is doing their events…it’s this promoter’s opinion of his over 45 years of experience in the fight business.  Thanks for your understanding…Forward March!
