I'm behind you 100%. Go for it. Hell, martinez didn't start boxing til his 20s and look at him now at his age. He may be exceptionally athletic and talented, but he had to put the work in. Go for it. Even if you don't make it, you tryed, you worked hard, you'll be in the best shape of your life, and you will have no regret. Best of luck to you

I used to box as an amatuer, and I had a job as a Boxing coach. This sport is my passion.

He'd be lucky to have me.

If the responses of anonymous people matter so much, then you have 0 chance.
If you're going to ignore negativity and set your own goals, then yes there is a chance.

If you win the ABA's next 2 years in a row & win the GB championships, you might get a look in, but you still have to qualify, so that means medalling in the 2015 world championships or fighting for the remaining places through the European qualifying event,

All the while there'd be an established GB boxer who you'd have to prove that youre better than

Very hard but not impossible,

What weight class are you? Because Anthony Joshua only started boxing in 2008 and he won Gold at Super Heavy this year. The US super heavy I think only started when he was like 23.

If you really wanted to do this you'd already be training, not giving a **** what negative people tell you and not creating a silly thread like this looking for approval from people on the internet.

May sound harsh to some, but it's true.

I'm 20 and I'm giving it a go. In the next season or two I'll have my answer as I have only had 4. Always wanted to be a boxer, you only live once. I'm giving it a go. Deotay Wilder took it up at 20 and won a bronze at 22.
