Just for fun - The real rule is as as follows (and do NOT apply to the JO Division!):
109.2 Classification of boxers.
(1) The following shall establish experience classifications.
(a) Sub-novice class. A boxer who has not competed in a sanctioned USA
Boxing boxing match.
(b) Novice class. A boxer who has competed in 10 or less sanctioned USA
Boxing boxing matches. Said boxer’s 10th bout shall be in the novice class.
(c) Open class. A boxer who has competed in more than 10 sanctioned USA Boxing boxing matches. Said boxer’s 11th bout shall be in the open class.

Fowler used constant pressure and great conditioning to win.
Combs aka Zabo
Ibarra aka TinTin vs Charlo aka Twin was best fight in Houston, amateur or pro, since the Olympic Trials.
Magallanes lost controversially, very close, 3-2 with one scorecard reading 49-48.
Newton was ahead but Woods laid him out, RSC-H
Baker was star of tourn, IMO. Beat Q on Wed. and RSC in final.
I would think most local GG tournaments will be similar to this one, being the year after Olympic qualifying. Mostly young champions and new faces.
Last year's tournament included Juan Leija, Manriquez, Hylon Williams, J.T. Mendez, Omar Henry, Joshua Garza, Fred Allen, Clarence Tillman & Justin Jones.
