Rocky Marciano - Had his first professional fight when he was 23 but got serious in the professional ranks when he was 24. Before that, he had only a few amateur fights.

Larry Holmes - Started boxing at 19, I believe, and had 22 amateur bouts.

Dwight Muhammad Qawi - Started boxing when he was in prison and turned pro at 25, without any amateur experience.

Nate Campbell - I think he was 24 when he started boxing. Before he turned pro at 28, he worked in a grocery store.

I gather Sonny Liston was pretty late to the sport. Carl The Truth Williams was another.

British fans might note Matt Skelton.

Bernard Hopkins boxed when he was young but not for long.

But he got back into it when he was in Prison and had no Amatuer background and when he got out he turned pro i believe in his mid twentiesish.

A couple that come to mind that haven't been mentioned yet:

Sergio Martinez was 19 when he started boxing.

Ron Lyle started boxing quite late as he learned to box after he went to prsion.

Hasim Rahman started at age 20.

I'm pretty sure Big Jameel McCline also learned in prison.

Yeah. McCline took the sport up pretty late. 23 I belive.

Sergio Martinez was actually 20 when he started.
