I guess it depends where you're from. I live in Southern Ontario, Canada. We have 2 boxing associations that I know of and their rules may vary slightly tho i'm not certain.

Personally, i'm 37 and have competed against guys ranging from 21-28. We have a masters division, but the boxing world here is small, and I have yet to find an opponent in my age & weight category (age 35+ and 139 lb). I know of one other guy from another club who is 38 and also fights in the 19+ division.
