If you're asking this question then you obviously don't have enough belief in yourself. Work hard and you'll be rewarded, age is no limit.

You just went from 19 to 20 in the space of writing an article.

With that rate of ageing, I don't like your chances.

At 5'11 and 225 I'd give my honest opinon stick to MMA and work on a ground game. Today's heavywieghts range upto 6'8 and I'd say you would be too small. You would have to have Iron Mike tyson speed, defense and heavy hands. Defense can take years to master and at 20 your odds are agnist you

It's all about natural talent and hard work. If you're 19 and have the talent it's not too late. Look at Sergio Martinez.
