If you have to ask, you're not ready to be one.

Eventually as your skills progress and you gain more experience, someone will touch base with you

Is it possible to turn pro with very little amateur experience?

If you have a death wish.

Search YouTube for "Zelenoff vs. Hartley."

What happened to that Zelenoff guy? I remember him making alot of noise here when first joined the forums.

To rephrase my original question: how important is an amateur pedigree if the fighter in question has immense natural ability. Would he be able to learn what he would need to learn through pro fights?

Please see this post (http://www.boxingscene.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6033657&postcount=99). It actually covers going pro without any amateur experience, Zelenoff, and why it's a bad idea.

Technically, if you had the money for a trainer (and could find a good one who was nuts enough to take you on) the ability to train full-time for a year or two, and an immense amount of patience and natural ability, sure. Maybe. You could get a license and have some fights on the books and something to tell the grandkids about someday.

But you're not just going to get a license, step into the ring off the street with no training, and become a champion. Never.
