I dont know of any states that allow fighters to fight under the age of 18. but stick with it till you are 18 and you will b all the better and can make a hell of a scene when you do get to start fighting.

I know Cali and vegas both allow younger kids to fight. I know Josh grispi started fighting in MA when he was 16 but that was before the laws passed this month so now its outta the question.

Im in Washington State, and our gym has "smoker" shows that occasionally has modified amateur rules to allow minors compete. My thoughts would be to work with your coaches connections up thru the amateur fight circuits. Eventually you should run into something. PM me if this is not clear.
Good luck.
