Nah, he started super young. His dad gave him boxing gloves to learn how to fend off bullies at school when he was a very, very, very small child. The rest is history. He had various jobs and whatnot but was a fighter from an early age.

I've seen pictures of him as a schoolkid and he was super tiny. My take on his career is that he learned how to defend himself as an ubermidget, woke up one day as a heavyweight and said to himself "oh man everyone's in deep **** now."
