Question
Hi I was wondering if in the state of nj I could still enter the sub novice division if I have two fights?

Answer
Every LBC usually has a novice division in their Golden Glove and USA Boxing tournament for boxers 17-34.  You are considered a novice until you have your 11th scored bout - at which time you become an 'open' boxer.  Since sub-novice generally means no bouts, I doubt there would be a tournament.
