I'm relatively new to the sport myself. I'm working on my 3rd year. But i am a little older...26. I've been training and competing in martial arts my entire life, but boxing is a whole different world.

My advice, that's one mistake of a beginner. A lot of newbies who are green think that they can turn pro.

Yes, you can turn pro. But there's a lot of collateral. You don't want to be the professional that everyone beats up on.

Boxing is a durty durty business. It takes more than a fcuk load of dedication and skill.

Good luck. If you want to turn pro, i say do it. I've been training super fcukin hard, and turning pro is something that i'm taking in very small steps.
