Re: Starting out at 31
Some states are also doing the whole corporate boxing thing if you want a taste of the pro fighting thing later on. Bunch of fat old guys without headgear. You'd be fine.
Go for it, man. I watched a 50 year old man with bad knees and a years training get after it with a young golden gloves champion in his weightclass and he did great.
Make getting in shape your first priority, basics and comfort your second, and before you know it, you'll be ready to rack up some wins.
