Its best to find a good gym and leave that to your coach, your coach will arrange bouts for you when your ready.

I fought this one guy who rushed into fighting, i dont know why his coach let him fight because he'd only been training for about 6 months!! needless to say i KO'd him in 1 round and the last i heard he had quit!! It was quite funny because i was fighting in his home town and his girl was ringside, after i knocked him down for the second time she threw her drink on me!! :D :rolleyes: silly *****!!

your trainer will look after those issues mate. Just keep training and stay focuses.

As far as weight and height go, you should (whenever you feel like starting fighting) just go with your current weight. Its different for everybody, but i stopped growing at about 15 but am still getting up to my natural weight. Obviously you wanna be in shape, but dont worry too much about weight until you are fully grown because it wont be healthy for your body and probably take away a lot of strength and endurance too.

for now just focus on your training, let your trainer take care of ur amateur career since they have connections with other trainers from other cities, for example my trainer gets me fights and the fights are set in san francisco, also the golden gloves are gonna be there so im lucky :D
