No. If you have dedication and determination, it's almost never too late to start. Look for gyms in your town or surrounding area and check each one out. I'm sure some other posters can give you tips on how to spot a good gym, I'm far too lazy to do that right now.

Good luck.

Starting a 14 gives you plenty of time.

14? Youre damn near retirement age. Way too late, your prime years are already behind you.

Hell, I'm 31 and just got started. Three practices down and I'm learning slowly but surely!

I plan to have my first fight this year at 30. Fourteen is definitely not too late to get started.

I wish I had started at 14 or even cared about boxing back then. I'm 21 now and love every minute of it
