You can fight in the open class is you choose to. But unless you have exceptional talent I would stay in the senior novice.

Back in '85 I fought in the silver gloves in Michigan. I had 5 bouts at the time and decided that instead of fighting in the c class (novice) that I wanted to fight in the A class (like open). I did well, fought the defending national champion, who had 80+ bouts, lost a close decision but went on a tear for my next 10 fights or so with the boost in self confidence.......Rockin'
