Difference between Amateur and Pro
- Amateurs don’t get paid.
- Amateurs fight less skilled fighters.
- Amateurs fight 3 – 3 minute rounds.
- Pros get paid.
- Pros are serious fighters. You can turn pro anytime you wish, but I wouldn’t recommend it unless you train 5-6 days a week and have been doing so for a year or two.
- Pros fight 3 – 5 minute rounds.
- Once you turn pro, you can’t go back to amateur.
Savage Entertainment only works with trained, licensed fighters per the Boxing Commission rules. You must be licensed by the Boxing Commission.
