It's a long process..
you first need to attend local boxing clinics..link up with your city's LBC president..and get certified for the amateurs as a ref/judge..you'll start at level 1 and have to work your way up in the amateurs before going on to the pro's which will take quite a few years..
good luck..oh and in the amateurs..it's rare to get paid..so don't think you'll do it as a side job with pay..it's mainly volunteer work.
