Default Looking to get into boxing

Hey, my name is James. Im 18 years old and Ive always wanted to get into boxing but never did. My parents were always against it and I just never had the oppurtunity. Im not the biggest guy in the world , Im about 5,7 and weigh about 150 pds. By reading Sam Sherdian's book " A Fighter's Heart", it created a real effort to want to get into boxing and I was wondering if somebody could point me in the right direction and help me out.

Just do it. I always wanted to get into boxing as well, one day I just packed my training gear and went for it. Best decision I ever made. My mom was against it too, but now she knows I'm really serious about it and how much I like it, when I'm having a day off she asks me why I didn't go. Let the world and yourself see how much you really want it. Go for it.

Dennis had it perfect... just go for it. and stick with it. Theres a chance u wont get to throw a punch for a little while in the gym and u might get real ****ed off... its all worth it. for me, i felt like training was a waste of time until my first sparring session, it made everythign seem worth while
