Boxing for fun? At what age would you say it's not wise to
start boxing/Training/Fundamentals (for fun)? Haha I'm 25, I know basic stuff
as when I was younger my cousin who used to train taught me some basics but I was interested in re-visiting some of that for fun.
What do you think? Thanks for the input.

At 25 I don't think any trainers would want to mess with you unless you are serious about taking fights

Yea, I know its far too late to be seriouse.
Its more about the fun of it for me at this point.
I really just want a better understannding of the sport,
and IMO theres no other way to do it than to actually try.
Nothin' too crazy.
Thanks for the input.

just go to a gym and tell the trainer u just wanna do it to get in shape and have some fun. he'll probably put you in with some guys. at my gym we had a 26 year old guy who was there all the time to spar. good stuff.

You never know... You may be good sparring for some of the younger guys.

I feel you. This would best describe me. I recently started training but I have no illusions of becoming pro. I simply enjoy the sport.:boxing:

Nice, yea I'm itching to go to a gym and give it a go.
LOL, I wasn't sure if i was being irrational in thinking that I could go pick up some fundamentals. Thanks for the info.

I think you can go to any gym and train there "for fun." At my gym, my coach lets anyone train, young or old. 25 isn't that old. You can train and still do some amateur fights. A pro career is probably out of the question, but you can definitely become a good amateur.

As long as you train hard, the sky is the limit. Bernard Hopkins came into the sport late, and look at what he's accomplished. Audley Harrison didn't have his first pro bout until he was 29.

yeah, it's possible

I'm a pretty decent boxer and I've had a couple of the trainers at my gym try and get me to sign up and compete in fights more regularly but I'm realistic about my talents and future in the sport ( I wouldn't make it as a pro). So now I just like to train and spar as a hobby

of course u should be able to box for fun, ot atleast for the fitness of it.

mid twenties is not to late for anything either. just means that you should have a more mature attitude and be easier to work with.

finding the right gym is perhaps most important***12290;


good luck. and sparring is fun once you get used to it.
