Of course. You can join a gym, get in boxing shape, learn a few skills. Now, could you turn PRO and have a successful career. NO. Maybe make a few bucks as an opponent. Then again you would most likely get hurt.

I'm a newly registered member on here, but I've been reading through this site for a while on tips, nutrition, etc...and I love the amount of knowledge and advice available here.

I'm 32 in the Wash DC area and have thought a ton about fighting at this age. I joined a local gym here and have been progressively getting into better shape and learning more and more about the sport (with a trainer), and I'm really just enjoying it. Do I wish I had gotten into this A LOT earlier, hell yeah. But, time passes and other things have obviously taken precedence over a desire to fight in pro-circuits. All that unnecessary information lead me to say...

IMO 33 isn't too old to get into boxing, but I would have to agree that 33 seems like quite a late age to look at going pro. Amatuer's, maybe...I'm don't have an in-depth knowledge of the amatuer circuit. I'm personally just shooting for getting back into great shape and working on becoming a better all around boxer so I can still hold my own with the young ones that have that desire in our gym to be amatuers and maybe head on to the pros.

Plus I like the idea and humor of now being the "old man" that gives them a run for their money when they step in the ring

but, if pros are your goal and that's what you're hellbent on becoming...good luck and I wish you the best.

I honestly believe it depends on you. Are you a quick learner? How dedicated are you? What are your goals? These are questions you will have to ask yourself. Everyone is not the same. Your as old as you say you are. Don't even question weather you can or not. Just hit the gym give it 100% and see where it takes you. You wont get any closer to finding an answer asking on a forum.

Hi Friends,

After one month hard extra training by myself. one week back i go to one boxing gym and practicing there. Our coach called us for fight practice on last Sunday and i get chance to fight. My opponent were of 21 years of age(12 years younger then me) and he were practicing from last 2 years. The fight were of 3 rounds for 3 minutes each round time, And it become shock to everyone when in the first round of fight that man get knocked in first round with one minute left and i become winner in first round...(I start attacking on him from start by throwing heavy punches and huks continously and one of my left hand huk punch hits his nose and he start bleeding )
